This post started with 4 trips to Target in less than 48 hours. I was on the hunt for a matching pillow that I had found on clearance and was no longer available. With no hope of finding the matching pillow I was looking for and no way I could justify driving to any more Target stores…. I decided to make one of my own.  My new pillow was created using 2 dish towels with the same pattern making it the simplest DIY pillow cover EVER for just $6 in only 5 mins!

I tend to wait till something goes on sale before I make the final decision to purchase it.  Sometimes this means finding a great deal and other times (like I am talking about today) it means that I only find 1/2 of what I think I need!

I had only found 1 pillow for our family room sofa instead of 2.  Rather than giving up and taking back the pillow I bought I chose to make another one out of 2 matching dish towels.

Dish towels are awesome to create pillows with because they already have finished seams AND they are also the same size as a regular standard size pillow!

I am fortunate to have a sewing machine but you can easily hand sew this DIY pillow cover as well.

I put the dish towels together with the pretty sides of the dish towel facing each other.  I sewed around 3 sides of the pillow leaving one side open so I could wash the pillow cover whenever I needed to. Which will probably be ALL the time for me with my 4 kids and Moose.  For the more advanced sewer you could add a zipper or button to the end as well.  I am not quite there with my sewing skills yet or would have added a button. 🙂

Once the pillow cover was done I turned the fabric inside out and added my pillow to it.
