I found these burlap looking fabric squares at my local fabric shop for $6.00.
Pin right sides together with coordinating fabric.
Sew the two fabrics together leaving a three inch hole at the bottom.
Turn the pillow right side out through the hole and press.
Top stitch all around to give it a finished look, leaving the hole at the bottom for stuffing.
(the pretty grey polish on my nails lasted oh about .6 minutes)
Ok so here is my question…… Instead of using tons of stuffing, I used tons of plastic grocery bags that my daughter and I collected from neighbors. How do you feel about a pillow stuffed with plastic bags?!
Not that these pillows are going to be used to sleep on, but what about for display pillows or floor pillows? Do you think it’s gross or a great way to use up some plastic bags and help the environment?!? You would think they would crinkle and make noise but they don’t!
I love making pillows but stuffing and pillow forms can be sooo expensive. Honestly the cost of these two things holds me back from making lots of fun pillows for my home. But plastic bags are everywhere, and it takes a lot to fully stuff a pillow this size.
So honest opinion…..Great idea to use what I can find for free or is it kinda gross!?!? Be honest I can take it. Kinda. Yes Yes I can take it. Be gentle. Bring it on. Nervous smile plastered on my face.
I guess I should add that I took these pillows to my booth at Sanctuary of Davidson to sell!
