Remember a year ago when I found white euro pillow covers and plopped them on a couple pillow forms that were a little too small for the covers? My initial solution was too shrink the covers in the dryer. That idea worked for a couple weeks until they got stretched out and started looking really sloppy again. I had two bigger pillows that I put inside the sweater covers and they worked much better, but I had always envisioned three matching sweater pillows across our king sized bed. I've been on the lookout for a huge pillow for awhile now. I was excited when I found this pillow at Marshall's one date night (post-dinner...pre-movie).
The pillow did have a relatively big problem:
...see the tear in the lower left corner? The tear/slash went into the pillow insert even.
Since I really only needed the pillow insert, I could look past the tear, especially for this price:
In complete honesty, when I picked it up, it was marked $7. I asked if they would take $3. They countered with $4. I said okay.
I gathered up a couple materials including $2 in pink ric rac, the extra pillow cover I had on hand and a different pillow insert I already owned.
Two new pillows for $6 ($12 if you count the original sweater cover).
