Trash to Treasure Tuesday #6

This trash to treasure project was something that I've been planning to do for quite awhile now. We've got these two great big throw pillows that my kids (and my dogs) like to lay on...the only problem is that the covers aren't removable so they can't be washed. And, they're getting pretty beat up as you can see by the hole in the bottom pillow. I got some great spring looking fabric and zippers at my local fabric store and in about 30 minutes I whipped up some adorable (even if I have to say so myself) removable covers.




Now everytime I walk into the family room and see them laying there I say "aren't my pillows pretty?" to whomever is listening...funny thing is I never seem to get an answer. Oh well.

I love your beautiful pillows. I bought a sewing machine and hope to some day be able to make pillow covers.

I don't know why I didn't see this post before. I'll answer: they are pretty!
