Well, my eyes automatically zoned in on the diamond print pillow, and I realized that I needed these in my home ASAP! The great thing about this site is that it gives you a list featuring where to find just about everything in this room but on a budget!
So, since I have been in a major pillow-making zone lately, I immediately went to and ordered a yard of this fabric! It is by Duralee fabrics and the name is Pool Diamond. Here are my finished pillows:

This should encourage you to not be discouraged by expensive "designer" rooms that you see in magazines! Any look can be accomplished with a little imagination and creativity!

    I love that is funny because I already had a shirt picked out to try to convert into a pillow. Crazy! And did you notice her other pillow on her bed. The same fabric that I just used for my couch!
