Our Georgia family recently moved and needed some new pillow décor. First, we made a bench seat cushion for baby Josh’s toy box (handmade by his Uncle Jeff!). Josh’s room is morphing into a travel theme—don’t you just LOVE this map fabric his mommy picked out? We had enough for a square pillow to pose on the rocking chair, too. Then we made some floral and solid-with-button-a-la-mode pillows for the purple sofa in the living room. Mary Ann purchased the fabrics at Curtain Call in Augusta, Georgia. ♥ P.S. Now I want a purple sofa!
That’s a peach of a toy box. The map fabric is so fun. Cool! 🙂
Great looking pillows there, and you know what… now I want a purple sofa too… lol
I know . . . a purple sofa . . . what’s not to love about that??? 🙂 Thank you for the lovely compliments! 🙂
I’d say the map fabric is timeless. so great choice!
I agree! I need to ask her where she got it, because it would be perfect for so many projects! 🙂
Love the map fabric! 🙂
I love it, too, Pam! It was really fun to make the cushions from that fun fabric! 🙂
Wow I love that purple pillow! Gorgeous!! Hugz Lisa and Bear
Thank you, Lisa! The button was a gift I was saving for the “perfect” project, and this was it! 🙂
That map fabric looks like it would make a great corkboard covering for the wall.
Ooohhh . . . I LOVE that idea!
I wanna see when you make one! Hey…I might make one myself. Oh. wait. I don’t have any map fabric – yet.
What a great idea for a ‘travel’ themed room! I am partial to maps anyway, and this fabric is very nice. Your family is so fortunate to have you ~ so creative and generous! Enjoy your creative day!
Thank you for the lovely compliment. Vickie! And I’m lucky that they let me have fun making things for them, too! 🙂
I particularly like the purple cushion.💃
Thank you! I think Mary Ann picked out such lovely fabrics! 🙂
The toy chest/bench combo is so cool and I love the purple and yellow floral fabric! Remember when putting those two colors together was a no-no? Glad we’ve moved on from that nonsense…
I agree! I LOVE purple and yellow together! 🙂
I love anything with maps– especially when it’s fabric. And I especially love the printed pillow. Beautiful, all of it!!
Thank you, Lindy! I have just a bit of the purple and purple print left, so I’ll get to make one more item using this lovely fabric! 🙂
I love the map one!
Thank you! I need to look for some more of this fun fabric! 🙂
I never would’ve thought that I would want a purple sofa, but that lust is contagious Girl! Great toy box too! The map fabric is so much fun…I need to find some!
You made me laugh, Laura! Here’s to purple sofas for both of us someday! 🙂
Ooh those map cushions are so cool! I love that fabric!
Thank you, Hannah! I really love the fabric, too! 🙂
Cute, cute! How special that his uncle made the toy box for him. ❤ Lucky fellow!
I know . . . isn’t that such a lovely gift? Josh (age 1) wasn’t too fond of covering the bench with the cushion and took it right off! 🙂
The purple is beautiful but I’m loving the map fabric – nice learning tool also. 🙂
I agree! I kept “reading” it while I was supposed to be sewing! 🙂
Wow – love the map cushions.
Thank you, Eleanor! They were really fun to make! 🙂
Beautiful fabric choices and lovely execution! Very clever (and once again, I am so jealous of your sewing skills!) 🙂
I wish you could come over and we could sew together! 🙂
I like the way world maps vary depending on where you are from. The European world map has Europe dead centre with everything else either side. My Korean friends are used to a world map with their home in the centre – an entirely different way of looking at the world.
I like that, too. I’ve always been fond of maps and globes! 🙂
Love them!! I was thinking about map fabric the other day. That is an awesome way to put it use!
When I was a classroom teacher I had a world map shower curtain (from Target!) hanging in my room. We could mark it with a dry-erase marker, tape current events to their area of origin, and do all sorts of other fun projects. Since you’re a teacher, too, I thought you might like that idea! 🙂
Love the map fabric! And the floral pillow!
Thank you, Anny! I loved working with these great fabrics! 🙂
I love the map fabric!
I do, too! It was such a great find! 🙂
That fabric is awesome…as is the toybox. Such a cute theme!!!!!
My daughters-in-law always come up with the BEST ideas! 🙂
They do…….you have written such before! Hugs…………
Where did you find that map fabric? It’s gorgeous! Love that toy box, too!
I’ll find out where she got it and let you know! 🙂
I added a link about the fabric shop to the post! 🙂
ooh now I need travel fabric covered furniture! Travel is our wedding theme (in June) and I think now I’d like to continue it into throw pillows or something! Thanks for sharing!
I LOVE your wedding theme! And that would be so touching to carry on the theme in your home. I added a link in my post to the shop where Mary Ann bought the fabric. I hope you can find some you love!
I love that fabric! This turned out great!
Thank you, Sherry! 🙂
OK…the purple got me too!…so pretty …and the little bit of yellow…love it!
Thank you, Marilyn! I do love those colors together! 🙂
Just like all the wonderful people who have already said the map fabric is fantastic. I’m still amazed at the fabric some people find.
The purple sofa looks great with the cushions
Yes . . . those fabrics! Love them! I just now added a link to the post about the shop where Mary Ann purchased them. 🙂
I LOVE the world fabric! Such a great idea and I also enjoyed your class room story.
Thank you, Sharon! P.S. Things are a little crazy here but I photographed your sweater yesterday and am looking forward to having a block of time to create your sweater teddy bear! I’ll keep you posted! 🙂
No worries. We are going for a holiday in a few days anyway. School holidays and I am taking the boy to Japan. Yay!!!
What fun!!! Enjoy every minute!

I love it all. That map fabric is adorable. I like that it covers the globe so that you could feature any continent, depending on where you live.
What kind of wood did Jeff use? It’s got remarkable depth and character.
Purple is one of my favorite colors, so I’m with you: a purple couch/sofa sounds…divine.
Thank you, Alys! So many lovely compliments! I’m not sure about the wood, but I can check for you! I think I should have an Oprah giveaway now . . . purple couches for everyone! 🙂
LOL Purple couches for everyone. I love that idea.
If the subject of the wood comes up, please let me know. I’m just curious. Thank you, K.
Jeff said it’s 3/4 inch plywood, stained. It sure turned out to be a lovely piece of furniture! 🙂
Wow! I never would have guesses. Please extend my compliments. Thank you!
These really are fabulous pillows!
Thank you, Thea! My daughter-in-law Mary Ann says she feels like a rock star after all these lovely comments! 🙂
Great job. I love the sophisticated palette.
She really did choose lovely colors! 🙂
That world globe fabric is terrific Kathryn ! What a great find … fun to pick out far flung places from the top of the toy box instead of an old atlas … Lol showing my age … or the net ….
I love that fabric too! Anything with maps is intriguing, isn’t it? 🙂
