More and more people are hopping on the DIY movement. While you may not be able to be as industrious as Young House Love in your rental space, you can still use plenty of DIY projects to customize your apartment. One quick, easy, and affordable way is to make throw pillows to accent your space. throw pillows add color, texture, and personality to a room, whether they’re placed on a sofa or lounging on your bed. You can make them in masculine or feminine style, so they’ll fit any decor motif you have going.
To make a throw pillow, you’ll first need to be sure that you have the materials on-hand: Thread and a needle or a threaded sewing machine (the machine will give you the best results) and the fabric of your choice should be close by. You’ll also need a pillow insert. You can get all of these materials at a sewing store, such as Jo-Ann’s, or at a hobby store. Use a tutorial, like this helpful one from Sew Alluring, to sew your pillows. Throw them on the couch or the bed, and you’re done!
