although the paper pony version is so lovely with it's mismatch of beautiful fabrics, since mine would be laying on a dirty floor (where people constantly track in snow & mush), i thought i should use a more substantial (& less dirt revealing) fabric. i found a really pretty soft grey corduroy & went to work. below is the end product.
- afterward i realized i could have used an old pair of corduroys (either a crazy color via jcrew clearance or a thrift store score).
- our doors are 35 inches wide so my fabric measured 37 inches long x 8 inches wide, which gave me a 1 inch seam allowance.
- each pillow used about 3 lbs of rice - fyi, the rice cost more than the fabric!
- i feel the need to mention that we are planning to paint the back door the same color as the trim (once a final trim color is picked) :D
