Linen ‘Sit’ and ‘Relax’ Pillows

Terry from Live Creative or Die Trying reconstructed old throw pillows to add a little rest and relaxation in her sitting room. She used linen fabric for the front and the former pillow fabric for the back. I love the look she achieved with the lettering by dabbing acrylic paint onto foam stamps. How can guests not sit and relax a spell with such welcoming pillows?

Terry was inspired by the Mr. and Mrs. Burlap Pillow with Insert from Ballard Designs.

    I wish there was a to-do box attached to this site! These pillows are great, as well as so many other ideas. I can’t keep my to-do list organized!

  2. There is a website! I found it last night. Go to Mrs DIY and the Tennis guy. She has a step by step tutorial. They are great! Good luck.
