A while ago, I was window-shopping in a fancy downtown store when I found two big (European Square size) faux fur pillows in a display. I wanted to hug them right there in the store! They have gorgeous 1940’s glamour yet so cuddly. The only thing I didn’t like was the $155/each price tag. Yuck!
After a quick trip to the fabric store, I now have the pillows without the debt. I altered the design a bit – my pillows close with an envelope flap and not a button like the originals. More comfortable to cuddle up to and much and easier to sew ;) I also added a bright chartreuse satin lining to the envelope flap for a fun pop of color.
No animals were harmed in the making of these pillows. One was made very happy. My kitty Milo loves these pillows!
