Well, here is what they became!
Sadly, I’m not the best measurer or cutter, so they were a wee bit small for the pillows I was recovering. I’m still really happy with them, though. It’s a much better match for our white spread than the warm brown and reds.
My sweet and talented friend helped me, i.e. seam-ripped the one I sewed inside out, but I sewed most everything else on her machine. Yay for sewing! It’s been a crazy long time!
Imperfect all, but I love them. One small step at a time, right? = )
The cover is the envelope style where you can just put your original pillow in and switch it out whenever you want. There are literally tutorials everywhere for it, and most are probably more specific than the one I used. I just searched on Pinterest for easy pillow cover.
It’s fun to see a little update in our room and think, “Hey, I did that.”
The total cost was about eleven dollars for fabric.
Hmm… let’s see if I can find a before picture here… nope.
Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed the after!
Here’s to bright, cheery colors; just in time for fall. = )
