Gorgeous, Easy to Make Body Pillows.......

Lots of bang for your buck here!
These beautiful pillows are a snap to sew up, 
can be made from old draperies, linens, or 
fabric you have laying around.

I used an old silk drapery panel and 
made my pillows the length of a standard bed, 
That is the size pillow form that can be easily found
for $8.00 at Target, so it just made the whole process easier. 

Make your own pattern by adding two inches to the width 
and length of the pillow.  If you are wanting fringe cut at each end as I have on the beautiful crushed velvet pillow, then add six inches at each end, or a total of twelve inches longer than the pillow measurement.  

Sew the pillow, leaving one end open for the pillow insertion.
Close the end and add your trims, laces or leave plain as desired.
I've added different embellishments as shown, 
and each pillow has taken on a look all its own.

If you want be able to wash your pillow cover, leave one end open by
 adding buttons or a zipper for each insert removal.

And it's as easy as that!
If you can sew a straight line, you can make this pillow.

Thanks for stopping by today....
My blog promises to have tons of ideas along
with instructions throughout the coming weeks and months.
I hope you drop by again.
