Do you have pillows that are worn out? Tattered? Needing to be discarded?
Don’t thrown them away! There’s a quick and easy solution to recovering them and giving them a new life.
I made some pocket pillows out of outdoor fabric for our porch swing recently, and I stuffed them with out-dated pillows I had on hand. I used chair webbing from Wal-Mart as an adornment for the pillow above. It’s amazing what I discover when digging in my craft cave. 😉
The striped fabric was left over from a project many years ago. I used burlap ribbon from Hob Lob for this one.
I like the texture burlap adds.
This next pillow isn’t worn out, but I no longer needed it inside – so, now it’s a porch pillow.
I sewed ties to the front of this one.
You can turn the flap to the back side, but I like the look of the flap with adornments added. I did the same thing with the Chevron cover.
Before you see the picture of the finished Chevron pillow, I have a confession to make.
A couple of weeks ago, when I made the grey and yellow striped swing cushion cover, I made this green Chevron cover, too. I was planning ahead for Fall, and I thought the mossy green would be nice with the orange and gold tones for fall decorating.
Did you see the Chevron pillow in the mix? And, you’ll see the two pillows pictured at the top of this post are here in this next collection.
No, I’m not completely crazy – no one needs this many pillows! Some will be moved to rockers and chairs on the porches. All three yellow pillows are indoor fabrics, so they’ll be taken inside. My desk chair needs a little extra “cush”. 😉

I’ll have more easy pillow-making posts this week (among other things). I hope you’ll sign up to get them through email – so you won’t miss anything. You can do that in my side bar to the right.
