Summer is officially over. School started on Wednesday. My son is a senior this year, so this is our last year with all the kids still in middle or high school. As much as the schools drive me crazy and I can hardly wait until the kids are out, it's also very bittersweet.
My son and husband went back to D.C. for a few days this summer. While my son was gone, the girls and I rearranged his room. Part of rearranging the room meant putting his bed in the corner of the room. However, he doesn't have a headboard. So, to make up for that a little, and to make his room look a little cozier, I decided that I needed to make some pillow covers. I wanted them to fit two standard pillows. This is what I came up with. (I had to take pictures outside since I couldn't get good light in his room.)
The lines and the log cabins were supposed to be wonky. *sigh* Not too much wonk going on there if you ask me.
I made the pillows to match this quilt (which looks really bad since it was wadded up in a big heap on his bed):
I think some of the solids that put in the pillows make it so much brighter than the actual quilt. Oh well. I still like it and it makes a very cozy looking bed.
Even if his bed never really looks like this.
