Turns out busting out a few pillows on the sewing machine was almost as easy as I had hoped it would be. I used the left over material from the wall hanging I had done and made 5 pillows for our bed in about an hour. I made envelope pillow covers using a tutorial I found on line. I bought 16" pillow forms for the covers. I figured pillow forms were the best way to go, though the initial investment is a little bit higher than just stuffing the pillows. This way I will be able to change up the fabric, or use the pillows in another room for a just a couple of bucks.
