Handmade Pillows and Pillow Cover Ideas

I am happy to tell you that we are finally in our new home. After several days of being at a hotel we were able to move into our little condo this weekend. Needless to say I am excited to start the decorating process. We bought a new couch for our home and I have to say I really enjoyed seeing all of the lovely pillows and design ideas from the furniture stores. I have gathered some ideas on my Pinterest board and wanted to share some cute handmade pillows and pillow cover ideas for the home. 

Many of the pillows I saw at the stores were so cute but very expensive. You may have seen me share some on Instagram.

Found these pretty heart pillows today! They are not food but aren't they cute? Perfect for celebrating 💗 #shopping #pillows #hearts #💗

As much as I love all of these, my budget won’t allow for purchases of pillows for each holiday. I remember my mom making pillows and pillow coverings on her sewing machine when I was a little girl. One of the first things I ever sewed was a fluffy red pillow that I made in a junior high school sewing class. They are so incredibly easy to make and I love that you can make it your very own design, unlike any other.  Back in the day, it used to be a “thing” to make pillows out of two square napkins sewn together.

These handmade pillow ideas are all so cute and easy to make!

While I have not sewed in years, the new home is making me want to get back to it. Pillows are an easy way to update your decor, without spending a lot of money. Many of these these cute handmade pillow ideas can be made in a matter of minutes.

Want to change things up a bit? These 20 handmade pillows and pillow cover ideas are perfect for easily updating decor.
