Sewing project: pillow covers

Last year when we got our new (to us) patio set, these decorative pillows were part of the deal! They are still in great condition but the fabric is a bit faded from sunlight and washing.
New pillow covers were on my winter sewing project list, and I just finished the final stitch last night.

Here are some of the fabrics used for the pillows:

found this piece of fabric on clearance-just enough to make two pillow covers

thrifted 100%cotton Turkish tapestries
thrifted mexican blanket (with two of the pillows at the top)

I was able to make 3 pillows from the blanket.
