Give a girl a few dollars, then throw in a great sale and watch her go a little crazy. Yep, that was me. I started out looking for fabric to recover my ottoman, didn't find anything I liked, but of course while I was out I had to run into Hobby Lobby and Home Goods. I hit the jackpot.
Hobby Lobby is now carrying a line of pillow covers that are fabulous and at prices you won't even believe. I found several that will totally see me through all kinds of changes for spring and summer.
All of the pillows from Hobby Lobby are 18 x 18 except for the rectangular one, it is 12 x 20. I have tons of inserts, so it is fabulous to be able to just zipper one cover off and add a new one and so much easier to store just the covers and not a tone of pillow forms. If you are looking for fabulous feather pillow forms, be sure to check out goodwill, I find them there all the time for $3 to $4. Ikea also has some really reasonably priced ones. I love the feather ones, they just make a pillow look so much nicer and they are much more comfortable. I will replace the ones from Home Goods with feather inserts. All you have to do is open the sewn side, and add a zipper, or you can even add velcro or simply stitch it back up after you add the insert. When I opened up a seam, this is how much poly filler I took out. Wow, that's a ton, no wonder the pillow was so stiff.
Sewing a zipper into the seam was so simple.
Much easier to store this when not in use - - -
I think I did really well for about $50. Oh, yeah, I did buy 3 more pillow covers from HL that I will show you later, I already have them on the sofa in the family room. A mix of herringbone, checks and plaid. They look fabulous.
Are you thinking spring and summer?
