The graphic pillow

Last time I decorated my apartment, I found a universal truth: Pillows are expensive.  Small and filled with poly, = $60  try to go to Target and they’re still $20, try to get a label or fancy stitching and up and up.  If you just needed one that would be one thing, but you need at least two or four! (pillows are one of the few decor items where the rule of thumb is evens most other items you want in ones or threes)  If you are on a budget then there it goes, up just spent it on pillows.  If you’re not on a budget then forget what I just said, and lets talk.

I found this on Etsy.  For those of you that are thinking Etswwwhat, its an online craft show, a place to buy and sell all things handmade.

At Olive’s Shop I found a graphic tee shirt pillow, fun idea for a kids or teen’s room.  I always want to support the entrepreneurs who want to share their ideas, so if you love one of her creations then buy it, it s good price for a handmade one-of-a-kind pillow!  If you are feeling a little crafty I suggest taking that tee of yours that you won’t get rid of, and you won’t wear and making it into a pillow.  It won’t be as pretty as Olive’s but it will help you clear out your closet!  In the next week or so I will be taking my own advice, to loose a couple tees and gain a couple pillows!  I’ll also be posting step be step instructions.  But remember to think before you act.  Will this actually match with my decor, or am I just wasting time?  I do encourage doing, but not wasting.  Please take the time to check out Olive’s Shop, to buy and bask in her lovely things.
