Mealplan Monday #39 and some snazzy red pillows

I found time to sew a couple of red throw pillows for the living room recently.  It was  good to pause and do something peacful and quiet - like sewing!
I had a curtain panel that I had found on clearance at Target, got it home, and realized it wouldn't work.  Blah.  I kept it thinking I could make something else with it, though.
Originally I planned on sprucing up these chairs.  They seem plain to me, and in need of a pillow or two...
I laid the curtain out to make sure it would work.  Perfect.  these are some very old pillows from a sectional we no longer own - ca. 1988.
 I used an envelope closure.  I ironed out the fabric, doubled it over for maximum thickness,
and pinned where to sew.  Took me about 30 minutes total for two pillows, but that included hauling my machine out, threading a bobbin,  and vacuuming the furniture.

They actually look pretty over on the cinnamon sofa.  I might have to think of some other pillows for the chairs.
