Hello Everybody!

Thank you for visiting with me today!

A while ago I had the privilege to visit one of my favorite blogs,

UCreate and share with Kari and her readers one of my favorite projects:

 How to turn a regular king size pillow into two throw pillow inserts.

 

 

This is a perfect little project to recycle old pillows or to save good money specially on down throw pillows,

 since you can pay anywhere between $25 and $50 for  just one insert.

 

MATERIALS

Basically all you’ll need is a king size pillow, scissors, pins and a sewing machine.

 

TIP: You can purchase super affordable pillows at your local HomeGoods Stores or TJMax.

You can buy two king size pillows and make four down pillows for about $20… That is a good deal!

 

TUTORIAL 

1

First using scissors cut your pillow right in half.

Nothing fancy!

 

 

2

Push the filling of your pillow in with your hands as much as you can.

 

  

3

Keep the filling inside of the case and out of the way pining the fabric together.

 

You want to have at least a 2.5″ piece of empty fabric to work with for the next step.

 

 

After the pinning it should look like this…

 

4

Close to the edge of the fabric, seal the pillow together.

More space you leave to work with… easier the sewing will be.

 

 

5

Remove your pins and distribute the filling evenly again with your hands.

Make it puffy!

 

 

You are done!

 

I do this all the time!

It saves me a lot of money and I can get high quality pillow inserts for a fraction of the cost.
