It's only recently that I've been into throw pillows. I know right? What was I thinking? I thought pillows wouldn't work with my brown leather couches. But they do work!
And I love them now!!
But that brought up a new problem. We had pillows that were made from fiber-fill or that batting stuff. They flattened very easy and were misshapen. No matter how much I fluffed them, they looked terrible.
So I was walking through Ross and found these pillows.
I didn't LOVE the look of them but I did love the price. That's $13.99 for both of them!!!
And the best part of all, the covers come off, leaving a feather pillow insert.
So I sewed up a cover with some blue fabric that I love for the front and plain white fabric for the back.
I made an envelope so I can change them out really easily. I don't have a pattern, or even directions since I was winging it and just eyeballed everything. Here is a great tutorial, similar to the way I did it. Except that lady knows how to sew! :)
So now I have some throw pillows that can take the abuse my kids give them and still fluff up really nice. When the covers get gross, I throw them in the wash. And I'll change them out when I get bored with them, which will probably happen soon. (The flower pillow is from Ross too.)
