Seventies style pillows

I did warn you that my blog would quickly become a scan-fest with my newly acquired scanner... :) Sewing the round patchwork pillows have been on my to-do list forever. I am still trying to collect the "just perfect" vintage fabrics and this has been slow going. But I will make some guaranteed. Must haves. The images at the top are from a 1969 issue of Dutch craft magazine Ariadne Handwerken. The pillows turned into cuddling corner are perfection as well. What kid wouldn't go crazy to have a corner like that now? Love that fabric...
