When we updated our rug awhile ago I immediately knew I no longer liked our pillows (welcome to life with a designer). I had casually been looking for new ones but could not land on anything I liked.
Then one magical day at Home Goods I found these huge orange and white polka dot ones for $16.99/each and they came home with me.
But then I was stuck. I didn't like the new pillows with old but I could not find any others that were what I was looking for.
Then it dawned on me...why not just make mine own? I had the forms from the original ones and knew I could come by fabric pretty inexpensively. So off to JoAnn's I went.
I picked up three very different but coordinating fabrics for about $25.
Then I scoured Pinterest for a simple and quick pillow tutorial. I've made pillows before but I wanted to make ones with an sham like aspect so they could easily be washed.
I followed this pin to a 'T' (adjusted for my sizes) and got to sewing!
Thankfully these came together quite quickly. The sewing was easy and I was able to finish them in one evening sitting. And just like that, our sofa had a bread new look.
I really love them and the pop of color the white adds.
It just goes to show that something as easy as new pillows can breathe new life into an old space.
Any questions, just ask!
