One of my favorite things to pick up at garage sales are old pillows. Not because I particularly like the fabric on them, but because they can serve as fabulous cheap inserts. Pillow inserts can run you dozens of dollars each, and there’s really no need for that. I picked up this pillow at my last garage sale stop for only 25 cents! A steal.
Okay, so it’s probably one of the ugliest pillows around town, but I loved its shape. It’s 30 inches long and 10 inches inches tall – the perfect size for a small sofa. And, it’s in good shape, doesn’t smell funky, and just needs a new cover.
After much debate, I landed on this fabric – it’s Waverly Parterre in Walnut.
It can be found here and it’s beautiful and high quality fabric. I bought 3/4 a yard and at $20.99/yard, I walked out of there with a $15.74 pillow cover. Not too shabby.
And do you really think I could buy just ONE piece of fabric? HA! I saw this fabric and had to have it.
And this is such a tease, but I can’t find the fabric online anywhere. The gal wrote, ”Linked Harris Twilight” on my receipt, but good old google isn’t turning up much. Do you guys have any leads for me? Anyway, this fabric was $25.99/yard and I only bought 1/2 yard, leaving me with a $13.00 bill.
I hope sewing makes it into my weekend plans…I have pillows to create!
