Every once in a while we all stumble on something that I like to call “A MILLION DOLLAR IDEA”! Some projects make you bonk you head and say…”Why didn’t I think of that”? And when you make the project you think it’s the best thing you have ever done!!!! These SEW-EASY OUTDOOR PILLOWS are one of those million dollar ideas. And they were less than $1.00 to make!!! No more soggy outdoor pillows. No more “spot clean” only pillows. No more hunting the farm fields if one blows away. These are great little pillows that will give your outdoor living spaces a fabulous pop of pizzazz!!! Let’s make a sew-easy outdoor pillow!
It took about 30 minutes to make my first pillow, but the second, third and fourth only took about 15 minutes each!!! They were that easy to whip up!!!
Let’s make a sew-easy outdoor pillow! It’s as easy as 1… 2………………. well, just 1…2!
1. Using a flannel backed vinyl tablecloth, cut out 2 pieces for each pillow. Cut out a square the size of the pillow form plus 1/2 inch to all size!
I made an 18-inch pillow so I cut 2- 19-inch squares. EASY PEASY! If your tablecloth has a noticeable design make sure to match the patterns.
With RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER, sew three sides of the pillow using a half inch seam allowance. Leave the bottom of the pillow open.
2. Turn the pillow to the right side and stuff it with a polyfill pillow form. A polyfill form is best because if it would somehow become wet a feather form would smell. Stitch the bottom of the pillow closed.
TA-DA!!!! How cute is this pillow?
Next week, I’ll be making black and white sew-easy outdoor pillows from a black and white checked tablecloth! Are you going to be looking for a vinyl tablecloth to make some pillows for your outdoor spaces?
