bed pillows

 for the longest time I wanted to make some bed pillows but never made any time. I have seen some really cute burlap pillows that I wanna make....And what better timing?  Over at  DIY SHOW OFF  they are having a linky party to show off all your burlap projects and more!

So, on with my pillows...
I have had these pillows forever, I picked them up from ikea...99 cents each!
They are pretty flat but when you fold them in half its perfect. I have one of these inside this pillow that I made.
back to the design of my pillow...I think i bought the wrong color of burlap, it's too dark :(

And I think the letters are too big? It just doesn't look right on my bed...see for yourself...

So I like the pillows but they are a big eye sore on my bed...they just don't belong :( 
Another vision taking a wrong turn!
It would probably be okay with darker bedding but I want my whole room to be white with  different textures. I think I will cover up the Mr and MRS with some ruffles and put them in my living room and start over...but hey, its another reason to make another pillow!! I think I will try the next one with a light linen or maybe some lighter burlap, however it may take another year before I get to it again...I have a short attention span and need to jump from project to project.
Thanks for stopping by, I'm linking to these parties:
