I felt the need to be crafty…and, once again, it was to further deck out my living room. Having recently purchased a couch that is beyond most people’s wildest dreams, I’m all about maximizing the atmosphere of my living room. This time I focused on comfort, adding two new euro-sized pillows.
When it comes to pillows on the couch, I believe that bigger is better. But, large pillows can be so gosh darn expensive, so when I learned I could turn 3 standard-size pillows into 2 euro pillows, I jumped at the opportunity. Pinterest led me to “Two Euro Sized Pillows For Under $15.00” by Megan at The Nola Ruth.
I followed the directions of Megan’s post, but with one notable difference: I stitched the batting from the pillow cut in half to the intact pillow. I opted to do this because no one likes a pillow that has two distinct chunks of batting. Basically, I wanted to ensure comfort. (Do you sense a theme here? I like to be comfortable.)
I also diverted from her directions when it came to the pillowcase. With a little help from eHow and the envelope pillowcase I had in my linen closet, I crafted my own envelope pillowcases. If you are interested in making your own, I created a “how to” guide: how to make an envelope pillowcase
My work from start to finish
And here the pillows are on my couch.
I had no idea my couch could be more comfortable than it already was, but it was possible and I plan on reaping the benefits for the rest of the evening.
