No, not the new one, thank goodness. The old one. When it happened, I posted this photo on Instagram.
We are so not ready to buy a second new couch though. Solution? Pillows! We have one huge square pillow, a Christmas gift, that works perfectly on the back of the couch. In a quest for two more, we popped into HomeSense and discovered how expensive such pillows really are. I wanted three more, but after checking out the selection, I was wondering if we should just go out and pick up a second Klippan couch instead.
And then, we found two pillows on the clearance rack. They were slightly smaller that what I was hoping for, but I figured they would be ok if we managed to track down enough to pile the back high. The pillows were a great price - $10 and $11 - but, unfortunately, kind of hideous. Time to pull out my sewing machine.
I picked up a decent length - 2 yards - of fabric at Ikea.
Next, comes the zipper. Trust me when I say a zipper is really not that hard. I painstakingly ripped the zipper out of my hideous purple pillowcase and pinned it to the open edge of my pillow.
Now, sew it into place! You will definitely want a zipper foot for this. The foot I use, that I've always thought was my zipper foot, works just fine but seems to be backwards.
