USING WHAT YOU HAVE TO GET WHAT YOU WANT

I had about 1/2 a yard of Kelly Wearstler Bengal Bazaar in Magenta but wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I thought about using it to recover a chair, but I desperately wanted to do something a bit more fabulous and useable. During a quick trip to Lewis & Sheron last week, I found the perfect plum to match the KW pattern and decided to do 2 double sided pillows!

I also found a gorgeous white linen on the clearance aisle, so I added a contrasting welting in white which not only provides a bit of pop, but it also gives the pillows a tailored look from either side. 
Each pillow measures 22 x 22 and I normally like to buy my inserts one size too big (for a really full look), but I just threw a 22″ insert in this pillow because I was eager to show off my transformation. This simple project was a great way to use what I had (scrap fabric) to get want I wanted (a set of KW pillows)! If you have scraps laying around your house, try this trick–it basically give you 4 pillows from 2!

    I love the idea of double sided pillows for the more bang for your buck way they perform. Now you can get a new look anytime you want.

    These turned out beautiful. Great idea for getting more out of scrap fabric! The white welting really sets it off, too.
