DIY: Make Your Own Pillows

Spruce up any space by changing your pillows.

Making pillows is a great and simple project that is super easy to make in no time! You can quickly change out or add new colors to your décor by simply adding beautiful pillows to your outdoor space, couch, chairs or bedding.

Sweater Pillows

It’s also a good idea to think outside the box. What do I mean? Have an old sweater, dress shirt or even jeans that you no longer wear? Transform and upcycle your once loved garments into cool pillows.

I often use sweaters, and adorable children’s clothing to make decorative pillows that transform any space from drab to fab! To get a list of materials needed to make a basic pillow, and a step by step how to make a pillow, visit my website at
