Hello UCreate Friends!
I am Desirée from The 36th Avenue and I am so excited to be back visiting one of my top favorite blogs!
Thank you Kari for having me!
I am sharing today the tutorial of how to turn a regular pillow into two throw pillows.
This is a perfect little project to recycle old pillows or to save good money specially on down throw pillows,
since you can pay anywhere between $25 and $50 for just one insert.
Basically all you’ll need is a king size pillow, scissors, pins and a sewing machine.
TIP: You can purchase super affordable pillows at your local HomeGoods Stores or TJMax.
You can buy two king size pillows and make four down pillows for about $20… That is a good deal!
First using scissors cut your pillow right in half.
Push the filling of your pillow in with your hands as much as you can.
Keep the filling inside of the case and out of the way pining the fabric together.
You want to have at least a 2.5″ piece of empty fabric to work with for the next step.
After the pinning it should look like this…
Close to the edge of the fabric, seal the pillow together.
More space you leave to work with… easier the sewing will be.
Remove your pins and distribute the filling evenly again with your hands.
Make it puffy!
You are done!
I do this all the time!
It saves me a lot of money and I can get high quality pillow inserts for a fraction of the cost.
After I was done with the inserts I could not resist to make some cute pillow cases for them.
I hope you take a minute to visit with me on my blog and take a look!
Thank you again Kari for having me…
I love hanging out here!
Have a great day everybody!
