BIY – Pillow Covers

pillow title

As an avid crafter, I have no shortage of craft ideas in my hopper to try next (hard to imagine life before Pinterest).

I have come to the realization that just because I treasure handmade, it doesn’t mean I have to make everything. My craft room is only so big!

I’m suggesting that, rather than DIY, let’s promote BIY (buy-it-yourself) once in awhile. Save yourself the time and shopping cart full of materials for one single project that – let’s be honest – may or may not ever get made, and support other crafters. It’s a win-win!

Today’s item is the pillow cover. Pillows are a great way to dress up a couch, chair, or bed. They’re also lots of fun to incorporate into holiday decorating!

Here are some amazing crafters that would love to share their handiwork with you:

Antlers are all the rage right now (love ’em!) and this deer pillow cover is a steal at under seventeen bucks over at ColorArtDecor!

Deer me - what a delightful pillow cover!
