Taking Pillows Outside


It's now officially BBQ season in Vancouver Canada! Yahoo! Sunday was a first for us. The weather held long enough to roll out the awning, arrange table, chairs, and lounge on the new cushioned chaises.

You just can't beat outdoor living. Right now every home decor magazine writes about extending your living area onto your patio. There are a lot of new fabrics by Sunbrella and "Performance Fabrics" from one of my favourite design houses... Maxwell's in Vancouver.

I made the featured pillow of "Gathering" from the Home and Garden pattern book. It's composition is 60% Acrylic and 40% Polyester, and is mildew and fade resistant. You can't beat the heavy, durable fabric that looks chic and feels smooth against the skin not like some outdoor fabrics that are stiff and scratchy.

The fabric retails $115.80 per yard CAD. At $39 per pillow its a good buy. There's limited stock of these so jump in now and order yours. PillowThrowDecor@etsy.com look under the "green section".
