This celadon striped pillow cover is 100 percent linen, which makes for an upscale seaside look at a fraction of the usual cost. The striped detail is hand-embroidered, to boot. Each of these handcrafted pillows feature designs based off of traditional Congo garb. They're created from natural dyed raffia to add an authentic, colorful touch to your sofa.
This is what it looked like when I arrived. As you can see, it actually had frown lines and wrinkles. What kind of witchy sorcery did I use to create this magical transformation, you ask? A super top-secret, rare fiber found only in every craft store ever. I used Poly-fil, an easy-to-find, cheap (a 10lb box will run you about $30) blend of polyester that has a high tolerance for wear and tear.
Around here, we love coming across ways to get a little more mileage out of our well-loved basics. So when I came across a genius idea about how to revitalize a 6-year-old saggy sofa with a quick trip to the craft store, I just had to try it for myself. My parents‘ poor 15+-year-old overstuffed leather sofa was years past being "overstuffed" and was starting to look really grumpy- like. However sad and grumpy, it´s a much-loved, quality piece of furniture so I was excited to add a few more miles to its already long and generous life.
