I was so excited to be asked to co-host My Favorite Things, a series hosted by Jennifer from Dimples & Tangles, Kris from Driven by Decor, Lisa from Shine Your Light, and Pam from Simple Details.
This month we are talking pillows.
When I went back and researched all the pillow projects I had ever created on the blog, I discovered two things.
1. I have a plethora of pillow DIY’s.
You could say a myriad.
Or a multitude.
Or simply a lot.
2. I think my pillows are all about my house.
And vice versa.
But enough vocabulary and pillow self-reflection.
Let’s get this pillow party started.
I think this is my favorite pillow project of all.
Maybe because it took me about 22.7 minutes to make.
Maybe because I needed a graphic pop on the back porch.
Or maybe because I made it from something we all have sitting in our closets collecting dust.
A shopping bag.
Step 1: Start with a shopping bag
I have three of these (see what I mean).
Start by cutting two rectangles from the bag.
Cut at the edge of the trim to maximize your pillow space.
When you are done it should look like this.
I left the cute stitching at the top but you could cut that off if you want.
Step 2: Sew the two rectangles together
I know this is a scary step for some of you.
You could always use fabric glue if sewing is not your thing.
I just stitched seams on three sides of the pillow on the outside.
Step 3: Stuff the pillow and sew closed
Now you have the start of your pillow. Stuff and sew closed.
I filled it with poly-fill and then pushed the poly-fill to the very back so I could sew it closed on the end.
Plenty of extra time to relax and enjoy a glass of sweet tea.
And now…..drum roll please….in no particular order my other favorite pillow projects.
