Or maybe you have an old pillow that is just…dead. Sad. Lifeless.
How do you breathe life back into an old pillow form?
|Before: “I’m heading towards the light…”
After: “I’m ALIVE!!!”
Here we go!
|Step 1: Purchase some high-loft batting. This is 10 ounce—the thickest you can go baby. You can find this at most fabric stores.|
|Step 2: Use your old flat pillow as guide to cut out your pillow pieces. If you are making a pillow form for a pillow case, measure the sides and cut accordingly.|
|Here are my two squares. This is seriously an easy project. I didn’t even change the color of the thread in my machine. But I did use my walking foot. Not sure if you should try it without one…|
|Step 3: Sew three sides of your two squares together to make a pocket type dealio. Turn it inside out if you want…I didn’t. Who cares, really?|
|Step 5: Pin the open side shut and sew it closed. This is the hardest part but just power through!|
|All done! Beautiful! Mwah!|
|Stuff it inside your pretty pillow case and sew the side shut (or zipper it closed.)
PS I love how this puffy pillow turned out.
|Put your new pillow form inside your existing pillowcase and voila! Brand new pillow.|
