Sometimes it pays to be crafty

We bought inexpensive living room furniture a few years ago - knowing that it was not the best. But right now, we can not afford a brand new living room set. So, we decided that we would just add new pillows to match the room.

I went looking and I could not believe that ONE pillow was $20. I really liked THIS PILLOW from Target, they also sell it in Linens and Things. But, at $20 a pillow, 4 pillows would cost $80.
It really is the perfect pillow, the yellow color matches the walls and the cinnamon color matches the curtains that I picked out.

So, I went to the next aisle and wouldn't you know it - they had matching curtains. A panel curtain (54" X 84") was also $19.99.

I bought the one panel and made 4 pillows out of the one curtain. I used the existing pillows as a pillow form and just added additional stuffing where needed.

So, it saved me $60 and they look exactly the same.

Here is my pillow:

I have done that! It saves you so much money too and it is so easy. The pillows turned out great BTW I never would have know they weren't store bought.
