Body Pillow Redo

Alright, so I had this horrible ugly body pillow. I bought it last time I was pregnant just for comfort. It was cheap, and it was ugly. I had to break it out again for this pregnancy, so I decided to give it a little makeover.

It just so happens that I was in Joann’s a few weeks ago, digging through the remnants bin, and found this gorgeous cut of fabric, almost the identical color of my bed spread. Best yet, it was a 1 yard cut, and it was only $3! I bought it, thinking I’d find SOMETHING to use it for, how can I pass that up? I got it home, only to find that it was slightly too small for my body pillow. It was long enough, but just barely not wide enough to wrap around the width of the pillow. So I improvised. I got a cut of black fabric, and added strips to both sides of the cut of fabric. You can’t really see it too well in the picture, but it’s there! Then I sewed up a cute little ruffle and some fabric flowers, and viola! It turned out perfect. There were a few hurdles, and I had to adjust the size of it a couple times, but all in all, I’m SO happy with how it turned out. Even with the revisions, it only took about an hour and a half to sew up. I hope I inspired some of you to get creative and make something new!
