Every year after the Christmas holiday is over and all the decorations are packed away, I find myself in the same spot - no seasonally appropriate pretty pillows to replace the Christmas ones.
Last week I finally remedied that problem by whipping up these three fun pillows using home dec weight fabric purchased at WalMart...WalMart!!
I'm not a big fan of that particular retail company, but when I saw Jona Giammalva's recent Periscope about her fabric score at her local superstore, I decided to give it a try. My local store had this great red geometric print for $3.97 per yard. What?! And the ticking stripe was $6.97 per yard!
A couple of yards of fabric, three zippers, and two hours of cutting and sewing later, I had three great new pillows for my family room :)
Jona's recent blog post about her new heart applique pillow will give you all the tips and tricks for making your own, and she has a great tutorial on how to insert an invisible zipper into the side seam of your pillow covers. Check it out - it's easy and foolproof! (I'm writing this post on my iPad and can't figure out how to imbed a link within the text, so here is the URL for Jona's post: http://www.jonagiammalva.com/2016/01/make-a-quick-heart-pillow-for-your-valentine-and-other-stuff-too.html)
The red pillows are 20" square, and the heart pillow is 18" square. Seriously, this project could not have been any easier.
Thanks for the terrific tips and tutorials, Jona!!
