I recently changed the fabric on the chair in my guest bedroom (link here).
Here's a quick picture to refresh your memory.
I enjoy the colors and would like to add a pillow to this chair too, but for now, some guest towels work fine. I had a tiny piece of fabric left over and we talked about recovering a small pillow on the bed. Well, today I did just did that and it took me a half hour.
This is what the pillow looked like before. A cute pillow bought on Ebay years ago, but my style is changing now and it needed to go. I thought that when I took it apart, I would find a pillow form, but no luck, it was only batting. So I decided to keep the old pillow together like this:
I then made my "pillowcase" and stuffed the old pillow inside like this:
Once I had the pillow covered, I stitched it up, like above
I added a little piece of trim - done!
It now matches the chair pad that we recovered.
