Oh, I forgot to mention I hate sewing...which explains why I haven't been looking for fabric to make pillows.
But then it dawned on me, after I made my no sew chest cover, that I could do pillows the same way (boy am I slow), but I didn't want to buy any fabric because my vacation is coming up plus I'm saving for Christmas, blah, blah, blah...if I don't have to spend money, I don't want to. So I went digging through my junk drawer (yes, I have one of those) and I came across my shower curtain I had taken down a few months ago, ummm I wonder....
I also had 5 old pillows that were thrown around
After gathering everything together I measured my pillows and started cutting my shower curtain to fit my pillows. I allowed approximately 1/2 inch for seams (you can always add more if you want more slack)
Once I finished cutting my fabric I folded it right side together and added fabric glue along the seams - note: leave the top portion open, it should look like a pillow case.
It takes awhile for the glue to bond really well so I just let it sit overnight. The next day I turned the fabric inside out and slid in my pillows. How easy is that (smile).
Once the pillow is tucked in good, I turned down the top seams, and added glue to adhere it. I then used straight pins to secure the fabric, and that's it! Once the glue is dry you can remove the pins.
Let's see fabric $0.00; pillows $0.00; total cost for 5 pillows $0.00.
If you want something a little more decorative or jazzy, you can always add lace, ruffles, etc. but like I said earlier, I'm not a frilly person.
I like the soft, muted color variation
So, if you have a shower curtain laying around just LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
