Make Pretty Pillows Fast cheap easy DIY video

Pillows are an important part of interior design. Having pretty pillows can make a really simple and otherwise undecorated  room look all done up and complete.

Even if you take out all the furniture and other elements of the room and just have a bunch of pillows thrown all over the floor it will look and feel cozy and you can even get comfortable using them in place of a couch especially if you incorporate a wall as a backrest.
While that would be a little extreme for a normal bedroom or a living room the point here is to show that the potential of the pillows is quite high and their versatility and practicality is rather unmatched.

Finding and buying pretty pillows shouldn't be hard and you can fill up a large house or apartment with designer cushions without spending a lot of time on shopping especially if you are ready to part with several hundred bucks fast.

But if letting go of several hundred dollars is not something you just can’t wait to do, the fast cheap and easy diy method is the next best thing!

And if you already own a pair of scissors, a needle and a thread you are almost halfway there. Not only you can make new things but you can get rid of old and unneeded stuff in your closet at the same time.

So, without much ado cut up a good bunch of square, round or free shape pieces from everything you find in your closet that you think shouldn’t be there and combine them into awesome combinations that will cover your fresh made pillows.

If you've got some blankets that you don't want to use as blankets any more they can be used for this diy pillow project with great success and cutting them up into the right shape and size is just as easy as cutting a new piece of fabric.

Cutting other things like shirts or pants is not that difficult either, you just might end up with smaller pieces that you have to combine to make larger ones so that you can make your pillows the size you want.

That is an extra step but this way your pillow may come out looking pretty fancy and creative because you can combine all kinds of pieces of fabric, different colors and texture and it'll be the most unique pillow you've ever seen, let alone owned.

You can of course use your old or new pillows for the inserts and just make pillow cases for them or you can stuff your fresh made cases with the pillow fluff and sew them closed.

Watch this video below for better understanding how to proceed and produce a pillow to your liking.

Having a sewing machine is pretty awesome for any sewing project but you can definitely do without it in this case, your pillow will understand... And use whatever case you make for it.

Sewing a pillow by hand is just fine, basic hand stitching is quite appropriate for it although you might need a little extra time because it does take longer to do it that way.

As for the stuffing, you can always get enough fluff out of really cheap and easy to find plain bargain bed pillows from the nearest discount store.

So follow your dream keep calm and stitch tight.
