I was super excited to get started on this but have to admit it has been a long, long time since I have sewn, so I was a little nervous. It didn’t help that my other blogger friends have been posting some amazing pillow ideas all week and have set the bar really high! I will provide the links at the bottom of this post so you can visit them as well.
My friends have also posted some amazing pillow tutorials so I will spare you the details here and just show you the supplies that I used for mine.
Seems that my sewing machine is out of commision so I went back to the basics and sewed up my pillow by hand. My mom and middle school home-ec teacher would be proud! It literally took me thirty minutes to complete my pillow!
If you don’t have the skills or the patience – no worries.
In addition to carrying fabrics and supplies to make your own pillows, OFS now carries ready-made decorative throw pillows!
I just may have to try a few more because can you ever have too many pillows?

The center embellishment was sewn on with some Heavy Duty Upholstry Thread.
