DIY Removable Pillow Covers, You won’t believe how easy these are to make!

You guys, really, you will not believe how fast these are to make!  I just want to keep making them! There is also a little trick I will show you to save even more money!

You will need:

Fabric (I used a half yard for my pillow size)

thread

sewing machine (or sew by hand!)

scissors

pins

iron and ironing board

throw pillow forms

I am super cheap and won’t pay a lot for anything.  Especially something that isn’t a necessity like throw pillows.  Let me tell you, you don’t have to spend a ton to make your home look nice! If you don’t want to shell out the money for pillow forms, watch for inexpensive throw pillows that aren’t necessarily in the style you would want.  I got this bright red and green one for 90% off at Hobby Lobby after Christmas!  Not my style at all, but it was huge and had great thickness to it.  I knew it had potential.  So check out the clearance section and grab pillows that aren’t necessarily the style you would want because it is so easy to cover.

Once you have your supplies, iron your fabric.  It is always best to start out with nice, flat material to make sure everything is even.

Once it is ironed, you will need to measure your pillow. Trim your fabric about 2 inches larger then your pillow. Make sure that you leave enough room for your pillow.  If you sew the fabric right at the pillow edge, there won’t be room to get the pillow in.

Now that you have it trimmed, you are going to take your sides and sew about an inch under on each side.  This is for the long side, and just on the ends. You will want to leave overhang on this part, so really just sew a small amount.  This will be where you insert your pillow, so you really need the overhang.

Once you have the ends sewed, take your pillow and lay it on the decorative side of the fabric.  You will lay your pillow on the fabric and measure the sides to know where to pin them. (look at the photo above)

You don’t need to leave much extra room for this step, it will make your cover look baggy and sloppy if you leave too much.  Pin snuggly on one side.  Measure the other side and mark with a pin through only one layer of fabric so you can still get your pillow out.  Remove the pillow and sew the sides all the way shut along your pin marks. Once you are done, turn it right side out.

You will now be able to stuff your pillow into the cover through the back that is open. That is it!  Wasn’t that quick?  I think I threw the whole thing together in about 10 minutes,and that included interruptions!

Now that you have it,you can remove your pillow whenever you want. This allows you to wash your covers if something were to get spilled on it.  Or change it out when your style changes. Perfect right?

Pinwheel Ribbon From Glittered Cardstock

I love pinwheels and think they are so pretty and with all the fun papers out there, there is a never ending variety of colors, ideas, and uses for them! Recently we had our pinewood derby for cub scouts and I wanted to make something different for our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners besides the trophy that all the contestants would get. So I decided to make giant ribbons out of glittered cardstock I saw at the craft store.  They may be a bit obnoxious, but that just makes them perfect for a cub scout, right? 😉 They would also be great for Family Reunion prize ideas, if you play games or do awards!

You will need

pinwheel ribbon out of glittered cardstock, tutorial,  #award, #cardstock, #glitteredcardstock, #ribbon, #craft, #diy,#award

glittered cardstock

ruler

pen or pencil

glue (I started with a tape runner gun, but due to the heavy paper ended up going back over with a hot glue gun.  If you decide to use regular weight paper you will be fine with regular glue)

paper cutter or scissors

2 inch thick ribbon (I used black)

3 inch circles in desired color

Begin by cutting your paper in three equal sections.  I used 12 inch paper and each section was 4 inches tall. Now, folding the glittered card stock is a little hard, and isn’t going to fold perfectly for you, but that is ok!  These don’t need to be perfectly sized peaks and valleys to work. You can use your pen and ruler and on the back of the paper make 1-11/2 inch lines and try to fold on those.  Just try to make sure that the ends have the non-glittery side where you will put the glue on to attach to the other sections.  If you try to glue the glitter side, it doesn’t hold very well. This may mean that you will be trimming off one fold if needed, which is ok!

Once it is folded, press it down firmly to help hold it.  Continue to do this with the other 2 strips of paper you cut.  Now glue them all together and allow it to set for a minute to dry. I had a hard time getting mine to lay flat, so you may want to glue the back of it to a small piece of cardboard at this point.

As you see in the picture above I added ribbon tails to the back as well.  I used 2 inch black ribbon and cut a “V” shape out of the ends.  Make them whatever length you desire.

On the circle that you are gluing to the front of your ribbon, you can put the words 1st,2nd and 3rd place if desired. These turned out great and the cub scouts really loved them!  They loved how huge they were and that they were so “special”.  Which is great for spending so little onthem!

My kids are so excited about Mother’s Day, and they want to make a “project” or gift everyday to give me or their Grandma’s this weekend.  If you are looking for a fun Mother’s Day craft project for your  kids then you will love these corner book marks.

All you need is an envelope, pair of scissors, and crayons.

You need to keep the corner in tack (so when you cut it out, it creates a pocket).  Have your kids draw shapes like hearts or flowers on the corner of the envelope.  Use crayons or markers to decorate them.  Cut them out, this will create a pocket to slip the corner of the the book page into.  Simple as that you have a personalized gift for Mother’s Day.
