Sprinkle life to your pillows
Pillows are not only cushions for your head and feet, they could also be the life of your plain couch. Yes, there are tons of pillow cases you can buy at home depot that are surely adorable, but not its price. And it sucks. It’s just not right to spend that amount of money for pillow cases because we can actually create one: better, cheaper. Moreover, making your own pillow cases is easy as pie, and super fun! Just follow these simple steps:
What you’ll need
Soft fabric paint (any color, preferably dark tones)
Choose a blank canvass big enough for your pillow cases. Measure ahead how much fabric you’ll use for the cases, and then carefully cut.
Spread the canvass on the floor. Make shapes from masking tape and stick them onto the canvass.
When you’re done filling the whole canvass with shapes made from masking tapes, using the paint brush, color the whole canvass with your chosen soft fabric paint.
When the paint dries, carefully remove the masking tapes.
Measure how much canvass would fit to your pillows, and sew the sides except for one where you can insert your pillow (tip: you may wrap the canvass around your pillow before sewing. Use pins as holders of the canvass before you permanently stitch, and then remove the pillows. This way you can be sure the canvass cases would perfectly fit to your pillows).
Add zipper or buttons to the open sides to prevent the pillow from falling out (optional).
Make fab rugs, because everyone wants one
