Do you have a favorite type of sewing project you love to make, over and over? Though I've been branching out lately, quilts are my go-to project. For some reason, I always seem to forget that sewing pillows is a fun, manageable project that can yield awesome results.
|My pillows could use a facelift.|
The throw pillows adorning my living room couch and chair are the same ones I've had for about three years now. I don't rotate different pillows in based on the season or holiday. I simply have three beige pillows with red, blue, and green stripes that never change.
But it might be time for a pillow change in my life. Instead of migrating to the quilting cottons or cozy flannels (I'm working on a few bibs and other small projects for friends expecting babies), the next time I'm at the fabric store I'm going to peruse the home dec aisles for some good pillow material.
Or, I can keep it simple and raid my stash to see what inspires me. Any way you slice it, I think it's time for a pillow upgrade. Sewing new pillow slipcovers will be an easy way to spruce up my living room without a major overhaul.

What about you? Do you ever overlook something simple like sewing new pillows? Or is there another project you've realized would be good to work into your rotation? I can't wait to hear.
