I might have pillow ADD... but it's the easiest way to add instant personality & vibe to a room. I'm constantly changing the pillow cases and replicating designer threads for way cheap. I get my fabric from Walmart ($4 yard) and recycle the inserts... total cost is about $2 per pillow. Here are 4 new pillow cases I made yesterday:
Here's a blue chevron stripe pillow case using 6" pieces of tape for a slightly bigger stripe.
The linen reverse side gives them a cleaner look and is very soft for actually using the pillows. (The painted side has a slight textured feel.)
Combined with the Moroccan print pillows I made last spring...
I think it was a fun/easy/cheap project to add a little summery latin vibe to the casa.
