Then I cut off the decorative end...
and moved it to the center of the pillow case.
Then I stitched into place, but feel free to use fabric glue. It's all good.
And VOILA, instant throw pillow for a fraction of the cost. And what did I use to stuff my pillows? Regular king size pillows that we recently decided not to use anymore... to flat. Frugal I'm telling you! If you try this send me a link, I'd love to see what you've done.
On another note, I recently acquired a FANTASTIC piece of art for my bedroom for $15. Are you ready..... ready..... ready...ready???? Okay....GO!
Yes you heard it right 15 smackers. My sister lives, or rather lived next to an interior decorator who was in the process of moving. She was having a fantastic garage sale and was getting rid of all kinds of treasures. So my sister calls and describes this to me, and to be totally honest I couldn't quite picture what she was saying, but I heard "really large frame" and I was in. I figured if it didn't work, I could always transform it into something that would. Well after I walked into her house, and picked my jaw up off the floor, I was super, super excited that it was going to work out PERFECTLY!! And why was it so cheap? Her hubby dropped it while unloading it from her car right after the purchase. She was never able to use it in the client's home. Score for me. There is a little crack in the glass that you really can't see, and the frame is a little separated, but hey, I can live with that. What do you think?
Okay, I'm off to go find some other things to transform in my house. I'm getting the bug again.
