Making do-it-yourself pillows is a fun project to do. The task is basically easy and it will surely enhance any needler’s hands. In return, you can create sofa accents and slipcovers of your choice, whenever you want, however you want it. Find your old floral patterned cushion boring? Replace it with something fun, like a bright colored cover in coral or blue. Or make it more classic with shimmering gold or silver metallic fabric. The choices are endless, and you are free to decide over built, fabric and design.
Of course, sewing is not some sort of magic that is done within a blink of an eye. You still need a pair of steady hands, a watchful eye, and a handful of tools to keep you on track. If you’re ready to start the project, it’s time for you to gather all the materials needed before you begin. The things you’ll need are:
