DIY COW PRINT THROW PILLOWS + HOBBY LOBBY MATERIALS

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I love throw pillows. Sometimes when I go to the store to look for throw pillows that I like I get disappointed because they’re pricy! One day, I was sitting on the couch and this idea of making throw pillows just flew into my head. So I was like “why not? I always have this confidence that I can do it. I’m a seamstress’ daughter and if my mom can do it, I can too! Sounds funny right? But yes, I’m determined. So, the next day I went to get some materials at Hobby Lobby.

This 12 ounce Premium Polyester Fiberfill is only $2.99 per package. One package is enough for one throw pillow. It depends on your preferences though. If you want your throw pillow to be fuller (more stuffy as I call it haha) then you can always add more stuffing inside.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Premium Polyester Fiberfill is absolutely the best performing fiberfill for pillows, dolls, stuffed toys and crafts. It offers a superior resiliency, smooth consistency, and will not bunch. It’s made from recycled materials, and it is hypoallergenic and machine-washable. Add it to toys, pillows, and much more!

I used two bandanas for each throw pillow. This bandana cost 0.99 cents only! Although you can use any material you choose. There are more expensive materials to choose if you want. For me, I just wanted to make something using inexpensive materials.

HOW TO MAKE IT?

Step 1: Put two bandanas together. Make sure each side is facing the opposite side.

Step 2: Sew each side all the way around all 3 sides leaving the 4th side open so that you can insert the filling (I call it the fluffy stuffy)

Step 3: Insert the filling to your desired thickness and firmness. Once all done, sew that last side closed to secure all that filling from coming out. Whaalahhhh….you’re done!

Dollar Tree Day:Dollar Tree Finds

Good Monday to all! How was your weekend? Hope you had a great weekend. About me and my family, yes we had a great weekend. Today is Monday January 7th and my boys are back to school. Oh gosh, I didn’t want to get up early. I’m a night owl person not an early bird. It’s all good though, that’s life!

I have a question, how many of you like going to Dollar Tree store? I do love Dollar Tree. I go there three times a week or sometimes more. There’s so much merchandise that I love from that store.

My boys are in school so I decided to go and get something from Dollar Tree. However, I did not get a lot today. Just a few of my favorite things to pick up every time when I’m there, it’s candles and chocolates! LOL. Not just candles and chocolates for today though. I luckily found these notebooks that say “LITTLE, BUT FIERCE and GIRL BOSS”. I love it, love it, love it! I think I got them on time before it was all gone. These are the last two notebooks left.

Little, But FIERCE

Not only that I like this notebook, but I love what it says. It’s so me! Hey, I’m 4″11, everyone calls me tiny, little, skinny and whatever. Yes I’m little, but I’m fierce!

Russell Stover Chocolates & Cookies

Here comes my weakness! I usually get 4 or 5 packs of this coconut flavored Russell Stover chocolate. Guess what? It didn’t stay for long and now I’m hyped. It’s that good!

Lazy Day Thursday+Thrift Store Treasures

Good morning ya’ll. What are you up to today? To all who are working today I hope you will have a successfull and wonderful day at work. As of today, my boys are still out of school. They will be back on the 7th of January which is this coming Monday. Right now, we can’t really do much outdoors because of the rain. It has been raining since last Tuesday. It’s quite nasty outside.

Today, we’re just gonna be on our pajamas all day. Read books. Helping my eldest son study for his upcoming spelling bee contest on January 16th. Well, you know that doesn’t come really easy. I know other moms know that there will be tantrums, stubbornness and the selective hearing moment when teaching your kid. In moment like this, all I need is PATIENCE….PATIENCE…PATIENCE.

However, when that part is done, it will be time to light some candles and just relax. Who doesn’t want to relax? I need it so bad! I have been working…working…working. So many times I feel so guilty of having limited time with my little ones. Last month, I resigned my job not because I don’t wanna work anymore. I had sever back pain throughout those years while working that nobody would understand the pain I had and the struggle of striving to look painless, to smile, to walk like I didn’t feel any pain. It’s a challenge doing that on a daily basis. Right now, going to the chiropractor helps me feeling better. I’m almost there. I’m grateful! For a long time, I don’t even know how it feels like when you don’t have severe pain.

Anyway, I probably blah..blah..blah..too much. Before I’ll end up today’s blog, I wanna share something with you quick. One thing I really love to do is going to a thrift store. Who else like to go to a thrift store? Can’t be just me, lol. The stuff I have in these images below are from a thrift store. The candle holders were $1.50. The books were $0.25 each. They’re not just books for decorations or photography props, but for me I love these books. Max Lucado is my favorite author. I also love reading inspirational books. The transparent glass is from Dollar Tree. The dog is not from the thrift store or dollar tree hahaha just kidding. That’s our sweet dog Daisy. She is so adorable!

I hope that you will have a beautiful day and until next time!

Love,

Ester
