So I wanted some Valentine Pillows and every store that I looked at was asking far too much. I decided that using the pillows that I already had would be the most cost affective so I tried to come up with some cute ideas for covering the pillows. The catch was that I wanted to have my normal pillows back after Valentine's Day was over. I can sew...on a very novas level. I can usually find something that I am interested in making and do it, but it's never the "right" way. I don't follow patterns because they are WAY more complicated...but the results are probably much cleaner! I decided that these pillows would be the perfect chance for me to figure out how to use zippers. Each zipper was $1.99 and the felt was 25 cents a sheet. The fabric cost was about $6 total. I was able to make four pillows (two light pink and two hot pink). The first zipper got a BEATIN'! I just had to laugh at how many times I had to take it off and try again (okay maybe 2 or 3 times but that's a lot!) By the fourth pillow...I was a pro. I'm sure that I am doing it completely BACKWARDS and a sewer would crack up at my technique BUT I got the job done and I am satisfied. The Love pillows are covers also but I bought those at Micheal for $3 each (there are 2). They fit perfect over the smaller accent pillows that I usually have on my couch.
