I go through "creating" phases. Meaning I get an energetic or creative spurt and I have to get or make something beautiful. And then I do that forever until I move on to a new exciting project. My phases range anywhere from shoe shopping, to scrapbooking, to scouting out and painting old furniture. Last week I went through the pillow making phase! Check out the pillows that I made with help from Pinterest!!!
And guess what? These pillows are all made out of either shower curtains or place mats!!!
I went to every craft store possible and just couldn't find the perfect fabric. I even went online....and nothing. Then I remembered target. How could I forget the best store ever?! I'll do the math for you. The quality fabrics at all the craft stores are quite pricey per yard. A good quality shower curtain or table cloth (usually a 72 in. by 72 in. or bigger) at Target is $10-$20! And plus the amazing cuteness is definitely a better deal.
This one is my favorite:
Maybe took me 30 minutes!
This pillow i made out of a place mat ($2.99)
To spruce it up a little, I lined it with black jewel beads from my local craft store. here's a close up
And this one is my pride and joy...I had so much fun making it:) I used all of the scraps from my left over fabric to make this one. Great for tying in all of colors and designs!
