I love making my own pillows. It is so much easier to find fabric to customize my own than to find the perfect pillow at a store. And not only that but how about the price of store bought pillows? Sheesh.
So I am going to let you in on one of my favorite secrets. No one in St. George where I live is allowed to do this though, got it?
The best kind of pillow inserts are obviously Down. They are so much fuller and you can chop them. (Are you a chopper?)
Down inserts from a fabric store will run you around $20.00 a piece, which is a sucky price when you want to save money.
So here is the secret.
Head to your local Homegoods, TJ Maxx or Ross and look for the pillows that are on clearance. Yes, they are probably ugly. (You should have seen this girl giving me looks like I was crazy when I was buying these.)
As long as the cover is removable you just worked the system a little. Congrats my friend!
I got 3 down pillows for $21.00.
