Last week I showed you the coordinated throw pillows I made for Reese’s Nursery. I also mentioned that the daybed seemed to be really lacking in something, but I couldn’t find the right shams to make things work. I picked up some euro pillows from Target and made covers out of matching light turquoise fabric and added a pop of color with red buttons. But Target’s euros are smaller than your standard size, and I needed a little something extra on either side of them. Enter a pack of pillowcases from Walmart costing a little over $5 for two…
I have seen some cute homemade pillowcases that included the ends being tied closed with ribbons. So I used that inspiration and gave my cheapie cases a sweet little handmade touch.
All it took was sewing two button holes on one side of the opening and two pieces of ribbon on the other.
Then strung the ribbons through the holes.
Pulled the two sides of the opening together.
And tied a pretty bow. I love how it dressed up the cases so they don’t look blah next to all my fun pillows, but didn’t require me to spend the money on enough fabric or take on a large sewing project.
Thanks for stopping by!
