From Drab to Fab…ric: Easy Throw Pillows

As much as I’d like a new couch, it just doesn’t make sense to buy the one I really want when I’ve got a toddler in the house. It will inevitably end up with crayon, guacamole and who knows what else on it. So in an effort to give my drab couch a makeover, I gave my throw pillows slipcovers!

Following this great tutorial from Rae Gun Ramblings that I found on Pinterest, some amazing fabric I found in the remnant bin at Joann’s, and pillow forms from IKEA (only $1.99-$3.99!), I was able to slipcover two pillows and make three additional pillows for a nice little living room lift. The slipcovers really did only take 10 minutes to make. What do you think?
