Making pillows on the cheap

image

Pillows are expensive to buy. They can be expensive to make too. Fabric, pillow forms, stuffing, embellishments, it adds up quick.  This would be a completely different post if I only ever wanted just one pillow, but I only ever want 4 or 5.  I figured out how to make them for a whole lot less.
We are always buying new bed pillows. I used to throw them out, now I save them all. Bed pillows, accent pillows… all of them. I save them to use for the stuffing in my new pillows. By re-using the stuffing I cut my pillow making cost down low! Now I can afford to change out my accent pillows whenever I want!

This is great for the dogs bed too!

I wash and dry them before starting!

I just make up a few new pillows,

and cut open a few old ones,

and start stuffing!

If you open one and it is compacted tight from being washed, just pull it in little puffs.

It will fluff right up! Stuff away!

New pillows for the cost of fabric only!

And some older pillows that needed more stuffing!
I like it when I can reuse something, but I like saving money more!

    Sometimes I’ll throw a tennis ball into the drier along with the pillows to keep them fluffed. Seems to work well!
