Just a quick little decor idea and DIY today. My mom asked me in Germany if I wanted one of her skirts. It used to be her favorite and she wore it so many times but she didn’t want it anymore. I always liked the skirt but hate wearing skirt myself. I never wear a skirt but I do like wearing dresses in summer time. Just can’t stand having them around my waist.
Anyways, because I do love the design of it, I immediately blurted out “But I do want it as a pillow”.
I have made pillows before but never made my own tutorial. I just used my friend Jesse’s tutorial which you can find HERE. It’s such an easy and fast way to make a zippered pillow.
But this time I didn’t make it myself. I wanted to just come home with the finished pillow because my sewing machine is broken and I didn’t know when I could either get a new one or have it fixed.
So my mom brought it to her tailor and he quickly made me a pillow I could bring home and which makes me think of my mom wearing that skirt.
Here it is in our living room.

I think this is such a fun way to bring a little bit of my mom into my home.
And it turned out to be such a fun and unique pillow.
