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 a DIY version of a ruffled circles pillow she spied at West Elm. She says she just had to spice it up with more color though and chose scraps from her favorite fabric designer Anna Maria Horner. There is so much I love about this pillow from the vibrant colors to the ruffled and slightly disheveled look of the circles. This is a great scrap buster project that you could easily customize to match your décor.
Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew shares a fabulous pillow cover tutorial to dress up those tired throw pillows this fall. Best of all, this is a “scrap buster” project designed to use up some of that scrap fabric that is taking up valuable closet space. For this fall-inspired pillow, Allison chose fabrics that simulate the colors or fallen leaves. However, Allison points out that the design possibilities are pretty much endless. Just check out the flower pillow she made using the same technique.
