Pillows and More Pillows!!

There was a time when we didn’t have many pillows in our home, but that will not be the case anymore.  Pillows just say ‘cozy’ to me.

For our master bedroom update I made an easy change by replacing all the pillows and pillow covers.  I replaced the red toile pillow shams with some DIY dropcloth envelope shams (made using this method) that I added some ribbon stripes to. I had just enough ribbon left to make two stripes on one end of each sham, but that works, because that’s the only part that shows.  πŸ™‚  

The blue fabric on the two throw pillows was one that caught my eye in the beginning of the update.  I looked at a lot of other options, but this one just kept coming back to my heart, so I made it mine.  The pillow in the middle is made with leftover fabric from the headboard.  I had just enough. And, once again with the ribbon – only this time I manipulated it to look like a heart!  It’s not perfect, but that makes it perfect.  (These three pillows were made using this method only with a regular zipper instead of an invisible one.)

I was really taken by the fabric on the bolster pillow too. This was one of my last projects, so I was at the end of my budget. I REALLY wanted a bolster pillow.  I’m not sure why, but I did.  But, since there was no money left, I wasn’t sure what I was gonna use for a pillow form.  Then I looked at one of the standard pillows that I took out of some old pillow shams and a light-bulb went off. So I did this.  

I folded the pillow in half long-ways and stitched the edges together.  Instant bolster pillow form. 

Then all I had to do was sew a tube, stuff in the pillow form, and tie up the ends with the last of the ribbon.  

I love how full and fluffy the bed looks, and feels!! And pillows are such an easy and inexpensive way to bring in color too!!

  1. What a creative idea for the bolster pillow! Did you get your fabric at Hobby Lobby? The blue looks like a pattern I'm considering for my family room pillows.
