Anyone else have an obsession with throw pillows? They somehow just make a room feel super cozy. I had a cashmere baby blanket that was my oldest just "hanging" out in the box of baby stuff downstairs. It was such a pretty oatmeal color and super soft. Barely used because I was afraid it would get destroyed by an itty bitty baby. I wish I had a before picture of the blanket. So instead of having it just "hide" away in a box, I decided to actually put it to use and make a throw pillow for our couch. I LOVE how it turned out!
It was honestly fairly easy to do. Since the seams were really already there it was just some simple sewing up each of the sides. I made it with an envelope back so it could easily be taken off.
It really makes our couch so much more cozy and ties in our new family room rug. I love the contrast against the white couch and the oatmeal pillow. I may just be stalking some stores for more cozy blankets to turn into pillows!
So, the lesson here, think twice before throwing things away! Have a great day all! xoxo
