My Pottery Barn "Nest" Pillow

I am so excited! I literally just finished making my very own copycat version of Pottery Barn's nest pillow slipcover. I fell in love with this pillow as soon as I set eyes on it in the catalog, but definitely could not afford it. I've had it planned to attempt to recreate it for a long time, and today I finally did. Obviously, it's not perfect and the original is so much better, but I'm happy with how similar they are, especially since the material I used cost me $2 and the iron-on transfer paper that I printed the words out on was only a couple of bucks.

The Inspiration:

My handmade version:

It bugs me that the transfer paper left a shine around the letters, especially noticeable around the definition because I couldn't cut close to those letters. I also had it planned to print the words out in a brown font like the orginal, but my printer is running out of color ink (and of course I couldn't wait to get new ink before I made this) so I had to print the words out in black. I'm still super excited about it! My husband came in from work, and I was jumping and down saying, "Look what I made!" I had to pull out the Pottery Barn catalog and show him the original then make him look at mine again.

I think a lot of you out there understand how exciting an accomplishment like this is! :-)
