I must confess....I have a slight pillow obsession!
I love to change them up all the time because new pillow's can bring life in to a room and make it feel completely different.
The only thing that I don't like is that they can be kind of expensive..ugh! I mean, I find one that I love and it's $108! And that's usually just for the cover! I just love that, don't you? (insert sarcasm) You know what I mean....you see a cute pillow in a store and check the tag and it's $40 and you think, not bad, but then you realize, Oh wait, that's just for the cover! The insert is another $30! That's just crazy to me!!
I know there are plenty of people paying those prices and they seem to be fine with it. Not me! Even if I had that kind of money in the budget, I just can't imagine paying that much!
Sooooo, I make my own.
You may be saying....but I don't sew.
But seriously, if you have even the slightest idea of how to work a sewing machine, you can make your own pillow cover's!
This little tutorial will help and despite what you may have heard....the zipper part is easy!! Really!!
And once you've figured out how to make them...your decorating life will never be the same.
Which lead's me to buying the fabric.
You don't need to go to the fabric store! In fact you can use just about anything.
Remember those $5 napkin's I found....
I also happened to be strolling thru the aisles of Target the other night and found this curtain panel on clearance. $7.56....that's what I like to see.
I will admit, I almost kept it a curtain panel...
that lasted for a hot minute and then snip, snip
I was able to get 3 26x26 pillow cover's out of one panel!
I'm loving the blue in here especially since my table is done...
...and they also go nicely with my "napkin" pillow's!
