I broke open my new-to-me Jonathan Adler Barbie sofa this morning. Flower saw its default state and promptly keeled over.

Iz ded.

I removed the default bolsters, blanket and throw pillows. Then I cut up my tombstone shirt and made some better throw pillows. I started off sewing by hand, but grew tired after the first one with the amount of time it was taking. I constructed the rest of the pillows by folding the fabric around the stuffing as if the fabric were a tortilla and the stuffing burrito filling. Then I used hot glue to seal the edges. The results look handmade by a crafter of dubious skill, which is appropriate for whoever owns this sofa, since you obviously can't get this type of throw pillows in stores.

I never knew Flower [who is not the owner of this couch, by the way, but merely an obliging model] was such a smart ass.

Those pillows are adorable! And they offset the couch nicely.
