Pillow Talk

I found our sofa and chair on Craigslist. I love them. There is no way I could have afforded them any other way. The couple selling them moved into a new house and didn’t have room for the fantastic pair. Their loss. Our HUGE gain.

There is only one problem with them. I HATE the pillows. I hate the trim. I hate that the trim doesn’t match anything else in our home.

The problem is that the sofa and oversized chair are so deep that the pillows are a must.

At first I thought about ripping them apart and making new ones, but I couldn’t find a fabric that I liked. And I was being lazy. I didn’t want to deal with the mess. Then I ran across this great pin on Pinterest! Duh! Just make a case for the pillows. When I get tired of them, I’ll just make another cover.

Here’s what I came up with … what do you think? I’m still trying to come up with an idea for the other four pillows I have.

And then I finally got around to cutting down a cover I picked up at Ikea on a recent trip.
