Pillow project

A couple of months ago my brother asked if I would make him some throw pillows for his new apartment. We were at Ikea and he picked out this really cool fabric, and I set out to find some plain white pillows that I could just make covers for (because every time I stuff something with poly-fil I think it turns out lumpy). Naturally, they went onto my ever-expanding to do list…

Part of the problem was I couldn’t find any plain white throw pillows, but I found these at Michael’s and they’re excellent!

I made a pattern half an inch larger than the pillow dimensions and got to work.

I just made the squares, tucked the pillows in, and sewed the openings shut. I was going to add zippers but Joey said he didn’t care about taking the covers off to wash them. Here’s the first one:

I was only going to make 3 but I think I have enough fabric to make 5 or 6. I can’t wait to see if he likes them!
