Part of the living room redo has been to get all new throw pillows for the couch, and since throw pillows are ridiculously expensive ($30 for one pillow, really?), I've decided to make my own.
This is a very simple tutorial to make a very simple pillow. I like my pillows to have a removable cover with a zipper so I can throw them in the wash quickly. You know, kids.
I like the insert to fit in snugly. If you want the cover to be a bit looser, I would up your cut sizes a quarter inch or so.
Also, your zipper can be larger, but not smaller than your pieces.
Plus, it would be super easy to modify this project by sewing on buttons, embroidery, ribbon, embellishments, or anything really. I would just do it before you assemble the pieces.
Hope you liked my little tutorial!
