five minute pillow makeover


want to snazz up some pillows? all you need is some trim, your pillow cases and 5 minutes.

so you'll want to grab your pillow cases. then cut a length of trim that is long enough to go all the way around the edge, with an extra 1" to fold under.

start at the seam and fold the trim under itself 1/2". you can pin the trim first, but i like to just jump right in and sew.

sew along the edge of the trim. if it's thick trim you may want to sew along each edge, but mine was skinny enough to just sew one edge.

once you get to the end, fold the edge under again and voila. beautiful pillow cases :-)

This is such a sweet touch! My favorite part is that I could totally do this -- it doesn't look hard at all.
