We used an old Kohl’s shower curtain that we were no longer using for our outdoor pillows. We were able to make six pillows from one curtain (two full size, two small and two lumbar). Stripe on one side, polka dots on the other.
It has worked very well due to the water resistant nature of the fabric.
When finding fabric for pillows, don’t forget to look at pre-made things and consider using that fabric for other uses than what was intended.
You want to find something that is a nice print as well as a decent quality – not too thin or with too low of a thread count. Stay away from too much shine or straight up plastic.
Wouldn’t this floral shower curtain from BB&B make a nice pillow?
Or, this one.
This black and white shower curtain is also not bad.
Or, what about scarves? They are usually about the right size for a pillow.
Don’t forget table cloths or curtain panels.
This is a really nice geometric pattern from Target.
A black and white table cloth from Dwell Studio’s Target collection is also a nice choice.
Get creative with where you find fabrics for pillows and other accessories.
