Any home décor enthusiast will tell you that throw pillows can easily add some pizzazz to your living space. It can add color and texture to a boring sofa. I personally love pillows and think they can be a playful addition to your home. A blank sofa without pillows is just blah! In my home, my kiddos don’t let my pillows rest. I’m constantly asking them to stop touching, throwing or stepping on my throw pillows. Yep!, somehow my pillows make it to the floor and then get stepped on. Mind you these pillows have come a long way. They are the boring generic pillows that are sold with sofa sets from your local furniture store. What I’ve done to bring life to them is to cover them with removable pillow covers. I bought some home decor fabric from Joann Fabrics and DIY-ed some 18” x 18” throw pillow covers to cover up my hideous one-design-for-all pillows.
There’s nothing wrong with covering up your pillows with home décor fabric, but now you step things up a notch and customize your throw pillows. You can draw on plain fabric to make your pillows look exactly the way you envision.
