I have a couple of pillow ideas to share with you. My first pillow is mostly made up of swatches from an expensive fabric store that I enjoy visiting. During one of my visits, I kept collecting swatches of all the materials that caught my eye. This was during my “I love leopard print” phase. I got home with all of my swatches and decided to put them to use. I sewed them together in a quilt pattern and made a pillow front with them. I used some existing leopard print fabric I already had for the side and back. Actually, the fabric was a sheet. Sheets make great fabric for projects. You can get a lot of material when you find a good deal on sheets for little money.
Here is the back of the pillow.
On the next pillow I used inexpensive fabric again mixed with a printed fabric and a small piece of trim to give it a more custom look.
And once again, the back is plain inexpensive fabric.
Looks like I skimped on stuffing! I should have added a little more. Not a good way to save on money on the pillows. Oh well you can’t tell from the front so much.
