Simple, Sweet Pillows

My sewing week is in full swing and I'm loving every minute of it. Yesterday I worked on pillow slipcovers for my bedroom.
Here is the large body pillow slipcover. (note: I'm not big on having to move a lot of "stuff" to get into bed so I use one large body pillow and one smaller pillow - just enough to dress up the bed but not too much) This slipcover was super easy to make and took no longer than an hour. I didn't dress it up much since I love the fabric. Just simple and basic but makes a BIG difference.
The next slipcover I attempted was with applique. I have never tried this before. Once I figured out how to cut the letters and the heat bond to match it went together very fast. Well, that is until I came to the edging. I tried three different edges. I like the end result but next time I think rounding the corners would look better. All in all I think it turned out great for a first attempt.
Here are both pillows on the bed, cute don't you think. It works great with my summer colors(I've been working on my bedroom redo for the spring/summer and it is almost ready to show it off - coming soon)
