As a designer, let me just tell you that throw pillows
are one of the most over-priced items around!
This pillow for example:

So cute, but it took about 1/2 yard of fabric, and it is
made up of remnants or scraps of fabric
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good throw pillow.
They are accessories to couches, chairs, and beds.
And they add color, texture, and pizazz to a space!
But let me let you in on a little secret...
make your own!!
ruffled bed pillow, cost: $5
linen pillow sham with vintage doily $3
($1 for the doily at a local antique shop and $2 worth of fabric)
If you find something you like...

Then make your own!
Or try a little something different.
My friend Danielle bought these napkins for $2.99 each
and turned them into this!!
Pillows are one of my favorite things to sew.
They are quick, easy and inexpensive! And when
you're only spending $3-$6 a pop, then don't feel
guilty for having different pillows for each season!
