Here are some eye-catching pillow patterns I’ve seen at Pier I this summer. They’re really fun and colorful…I like the simple graphic shapes that are used within the patterns. Some of them have embroidery and rick-rack incorporated into the design which gives them a unique, handmade look. I found them inspiring, so I thought I’d share them with you!

If you love stitching and embroidery, you’ll need to check out Aimee Ray’s book, Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection. Aimee does some wonderfully creative stitching–I’ve seen a lot of her projects for this book in person, because I used to sit right next to her at work! We were both designers for a greeting card company, but Aimee is now an author and expert stitcher and embroiderer. I have Aimee’s first book, Doodle Stitching: Fresh & Fun Embroidery for Beginners, and when I look through all the fun and easy projects in that book I really get motivated to start stitching away! Visit Aimee’s blog for free projects and patterns, and some helpful embroidery tutorials.
