Changing up a space one pillow at a time!

So I was never really crazy about these throw pillows in my family room.  After Christmas, I headed to Hobby Lobby to look for some new fabric.

 I fell in love with this paisley print.  Using your pillow as a measurement guide, cut out your material.  Make sure to leave the fold so that you'll only have 3 sides to sew.

 Sew the edges on the wrong side of the fabric, leaving an opening to stuff the pillow in.

Fold right side out, stuff in pillow, and sew seam shut.

For $13 in fabric, I got two new pillows that I love.  If this DIY project has inspired any of you to learn to sew or become more efficient with your sewing machine, I would love to offer a class to any interested.  Please leave a comment, and I'll plan a class for all you new sewers.  If you've never sewed but want to learn, now is your chance!


  1. I would love to take a sewing class - those pillows are adorable!

  2. I would love to a sewing class too :)
