Some throw pillows are hideous. Some are expensive. Some are both.
If you don’t have throw pillows and you want to add a few beautiful examples to your home décor, why not make your own? It’s not only an economical option, but it’s also fun as well.
You may be thinking that you’re creatively challenged and couldn’t make something as simple as a cloth napkin, let alone a pillow, but our staff at Fabric Barn Inc. want to encourage you to start snipping and sewing. We are among the most well-known fabric stores in Long Beach, CA, and we’ve put together this blog post to give you motivation for creating your own DIY throw pillows for the living room.
It’s relatively inexpensive to make your own pillows as long as you have access to a sewing machine and don’t have to buy a new one. All you need from a material standpoint is fabric, batting, and accents such as ribbons. Of course, you will also need the other tools of the trade to create your masterpieces, so make sure you have scissors, a tape measure, a ruler, and stick pins. Then it’s all just a matter of stitching the pieces together, stuffing them, and enjoying the fruits of your labor.
You can find all of these materials and supplies at our fabric store in Long Beach, CA, along with some encouragement if you get stuck or are a bit hesitant about starting.
