We were so frustrated with throw pillows that cost upwards of $200. We convinced ourselves that we could learn to make pillows on our own. Our hubby got us a sewing machine from Ikea (Seriously! It's great!) Then, our girlfriend signed us up for a beginner sewing class. We trolled the interweb and found this video to study zippers, and then yesterday, we made THESE TWO STUNNING PILLOWS! Please note the sassy, contrasting red zippers! Thank you, we think they're pretty super, too! Xo.
