etsy find: letter pillows


i adore people who can sew. it is one of those skills i have on the back burner with all the other things i think i should learn sooner than later but not right now. the back burner is really quite a handy place to store things which if dwelled upon would make me feel ultra guilty. therefore the back burner is an excellent place to toss things you just can't get to. yet. making homemade bread is on there too. so is learning a second language and buying fancy furniture. running a marathon and scrapbooking my life away is sitting there patiently. along with organizing my tupperware so that all the bowls meet their lovers, i mean lids. yeah, the back burner is the greatest.

onto Yvonne of Yvestown, the sweet sewer and lover of pastel colors, cottage-esque scenes and all other lovely things. i can imagine having tea and cookies in her light-filled floral, polka dot home. am excited to see that she has stocked her little etsy shop full of these adorable monogram pillows.

I love this idea...especially because L would be pretty easy for me to make. I have actually been doing a little pillow sewing this week and it's not too bad, if your expectations are low!!!

Marta, no worries, my back burner also boileth over! Thanks for this sweet post. I'm so inspired by these cute pillows and lovely fabrics.

Yeah, I'm not a sewer either, but I should be because my house needs some serious decorating. As for the letters...my beloved babysitter (when I was little) sewed letter pillows spelling my name and I've always loved them. I need a big fat M for my little guy!

I love Yvestown. Everything in her life appears to beam. It's a bright and sunny place.
