Yes, if you know me well enough you know of my LOVE for pillows! All shapes, sizes, colors, patterns and more. But, the best quality is CHEAP. Pillow prices are horrendous and I think I’ve only ever actually paid $12 for 1 pillow in my whole life (decorative pillows) and that was with a gift card for a special birthday splurge.
Some have asked where I find them? Well, yard sales, Goodwills, and thrift stores are my biggest market. I know, used, yuck! Well, some extra sun, a quick suffocating fix for any nasty creatures and then an extra hot soak in the washer and a hot cycle in the dryer takes care of it! Sometimes I throw the inserts out if they are nasty, but usually I can salvage them for a later project if I just want the cover.
I found the pillow covers in the above pictures from my faithful store---Hobby Lobby. They have a huge selection and all run around $7 which is really not bad. Then add your 40% off coupon and voila it makes for a cheap “new” pillow for only a few bucks. These were my extra finds after getting a bunch at yard sales for my bedroom redo.
A handy sewing machine and or a glue gun and a fun material can make for a simple and fun way to create diy covers too. I always love seeing my friend at The Frugal Homemaker’s pillow creations. You can see one made from a placemat here.
Lest you think I have enough—nope! My eyes are always peeled for more. I am in the process of determining color changes for our next home which has my mind spinning at different color pillows.
