His and Her pillows

Burlap pillows seem to be all the craze these days. Not sure why since you really can't lay on them but they are kinda cute. I've seen them at different stores like Pottery Barn, Ethan Allen, and other boutiques. Their price - $60 to $90 EACH! I have NO idea who would spend that kind of money on burlap, especially when the design is so simple. I was very pleased when I found a tutorial on THIS blog and it was beyond easy. 

I made my pillows 18 inches and used the Harrington font for the letters. A very helpful hint is to apply "Fray Check" around the entire pillow to avoid shredding, burlap tends to shred a lot once its cut! Also, the best part about this project - no sewing! I smeared some liquid stitch around the edges and voila - knock off designer pillows! (and for under $5!)

Now there will be no mistake who sleeps on what side of the bed ;) 

Pin It!
