Pillow Project

We finally bought the sofa we've been drooling over for a few months now.  But I'm going to keep you all in suspense for a while before posting any photos, because first I need throw pillows and lighting and I REALLY need to finish the gallery wall I've been planning forever.

When it comes to throw pillows, I really should just accept the fact that my dog will eat them.  But I must have them.  So I've decided I will sew the covers myself and use Ikea pillow inserts.  I can do this pretty inexpensively, which means I won't cry too hard when I discover the shredded remains buried in the back yard.

And since I'm still not great when it comes to sewing, I was thrilled to discover an envelope back pillow tutorial by Susan on Freshly Picked that describes these pillows as "the easiest thing that you've ever made."  Right up my alley!

Anyone else want to try making these pillows with me?  It would be fun to compare notes!
