So, how did everyone fare with last week’s DIY Nautical Lamp project? (I have a cheap turquoise desk lamp left over from my college dorm room that’s begging for some natural hemp to cover up years of abuse/moves.) Well, this week we’re continuing to spread summer love with a project so easy, you’ll wonder why you didn’t try it sooner. Normally, me + a needle and thread don’t work well together, but I think this pillow project is definitely within my sewing skill set.
If you’re like me, between June and August every moment spent at the office or in bed asleep is precious, limited time NOT spent outside enjoying the sweet smell of summer. To make those moments even more comfortable and stylish, grab your favorite weather-resistant fabric and a needle and thread to sew your own outdoor pillows. Throw pillows are an excellent way to brighten up your porch, while making outdoor afternoon naps a even more relaxing.
We have step-by-step instructions and a detailed materials list at HGTV.com for this easy-sew outdoor pillow project. Don’t forget to share your finished work with us! We’d love to see pictures of your summer-inspired porch or hammock – pillows and all!
