Create With Me Project and a Thrift Find

Isn't this pillow so fun?! I love it.  When I saw that UCreate's "Create With Me Project" were throw pillows and one of them was the Shag Pillow by V and Co I knew I had to get in on the action.  The tutorial was put together nicely and the pillow was fairly easy to construct, just a little tedious.  I made it for this rocking chair I found at the secondhand store for only $3.00!!  There were actually 2 of them and I bought them both!  Thank you Isaiah and Alyza!  I gave new life to the green one by sanding it down and painting it a cream color.  I had no idea it would be so much work, but am pleased with the results!
I started sanding down the purple one when I noticed a field of purple flowers down the street that I thought would be perfect for a photo shoot.
Then I decided I sort of like the purple so I haven't finished sanding it.  Best thrift find I've had in a while!

Your pillow turned out fabulous! Inspiring me too make one for my remodel-in-progress bedroom. And I vote to keep the purple as you have distressed it.

Your shag pillow turned out so cute! I love the color! And your thrift store find is awesome, too! I'm not gonna lie that I'm a little jealous of your adorable rocking chairs.

I love the shag pillow, the color stands out so nicely against the cream color chair. Your daughter looks adorable sitting on the pretty purple one, good score!

LOVE this pillow - what a cool look. Great color, too - mixes so well with a bright summery / springy neon. You should consider entering it into Craftbaby's DIY Throw Pillow challenge http://www.craftbaby.com/contests/9/diy-throw-pillows-sweeps
