Nicole from Shabby Beach Nest was floored when she saw the price of a bunny pillow that her daughter wanted to get for Easter – $75! Nicole says, “I knew I could make this pillow on the cheap, and boy was I right. This pillow cost me a whopping $0.” I love Nicole’s resourcefulness in using the fabric from an old shirt and dress for her pillow. It cost her nothing and repurposed some items from her stash.
Jessica from Sew Homegrown created this deer head silhouette pillow to add a little festivity to her couch. Jessica’s hubs drew a pattern (that has kindly been made available to Jessica’s readers), which Jessica traced and cut from a colorful, textured fabric. She then used a dense zigzag stitch to sew the deer to the front square of the pillow. Like Jessica, I love that this pillow is seasonal without being too Christmas-y, so you don’t have to pack it up with the rest of your Christmas decorations.
Jaime from That’s My Letter created this lovely monogrammed pillow for her neighbor’s living room. With the beautiful script font and flanged edge, Jaime’s pillow looks like it came straight from Pottery Barn. Best of all, Jaime breaks down the applique steps in a straightforward, easy-to-follow tutorial so you can make your own!
The leaves are in full color changing mode here, making me even more grateful for this time of year. Paula at Sweat Pea created some fall pillows that bring the look of those lovely leaves inside. Best of all, she used all items that she had on hand, so the pillows didn’t cost her a penny!
