Take What You Have DIY Pillows

You know how it is, money’s running low, but creativity’s running high. Here are some of my pillows made from re-purposed material.

The chair fabric is from my first try at re-upholstering this chair and the lace curtain is a left-over piece from my diy mosquito lace screen.

The white pillow is made from old jeans and the round one from an old dress. Bonus: The bedset pillow cases in the back are also DIY:ed from repurposed fabric!

Btw, I have a hot tip for you. I’m not sure if batting/filling for pillows is expensive where you live, but here in my town in Sweden I have yet to find some at the crafts stores that will not make my wallet bleed. However, at IKEA’s as-is section there are very often sofa cushions (new ones, not some that have been out in the store) for sale. They are very cheap and have the best filling ever. You can make a lot of pillows from one cushion! Just awesome.
