Mini Tips and Tuts: Reusing Pillows Already Living at Your House

Simple re-use!  Why buy more pillows!

It suddenly occurred to me while I was preparing to visit my local craft store to purchase a pillow form for the sun painted fabric pillow that I have altogether too many pillows sitting around - many unused most of the year (holiday pillows). Why not simply create a slip case type cover and pull one of those pillows out of storage!

By reusing pillows I already own, I am saving between $15.00 and $20.00 per pillow and reducing the number of pillows I have stored in the closet!!

Making Hexies On The Go Travel Kit

Mini hexies - making on the go!

Most of my readers know that when I am working on a project in earnest, I carry it with me almost everywhere I go to take advantage of what would otherwise be "lost" minutes! This habit is a big part of how I manage to fit as much crafty goodness into my life as I do! Generally speaking - most fiber crafts - knitting, crochet, embroidery and hand sewing - are excellent candidates! Hexies on the go - a bit more challenging! So many little bits and scraps - and hexies to corral. 

Work in Progress - Tidal Pool Quilt Block

Tidal Pool Quilt block

I do not consider myself a quilter - and yet it is funny how many quilt projects I end up making!

Thought I would share my little tidal pool pillow top or table topper or wall hanging - it's final purpose is yet undecided!

Actually, I created this little block about a year ago. Once the yoyos were pinned in place, I set it aside to focus on Dala and that was that!
