Just the other day, David and I were going through our closets and came across several nice pillow covers from our various travels. We've found it hard to find the pillow inserts and were resigned to the fact that we would probably have to make a trip out to IKEA when suddenly I thought...'I know where I can get a lot of stuffing....my fabric scraps!'
I don't know why I didn't think of this before. It's a perfect solution.
You can fit a ton of fabric scraps into a pillow cover. We have several that even had zippered backs which is perfect. I'm always holding onto my fabric scraps because I think what if I need a bit of that fabric later on? This is the best solution because I still have the fabric scraps if I need to use them but they are out of sight (and out of my sewing room) in a functional storage system of sorts.
One word of caution...no pillow-fighting with these pillows--the fabric scraps make them very heavy!
YAY! Now we have all our pretty pillow covers on display! What are your clever ways of using (or storing) fabric scraps?
