DIY Wednesday: Floral pillow from scarf

Today's project is inspired by my favorite you-really-could-be-making-this-yourself retailer Urban Outfitters.

Below is UO's Floral Scarf Pillow, which begs the question, 'why buy a pillow that looks like a scarf when one can make a scarf that looks like a pillow?'

Urban Outfitter's pillow is $28.

Mine is a buck or so.

Go to your favorite thrift store and pick up a floral scarf and an ugly pillow. Fold the scarf in half. Wrap it around the pillow. Pin the seam. Sew. It's super easy - the perfect project for the non-precise seamstress. For more details, see the full tutorial here.

And the project is fully reversible. So if Urban Outfitters later markets a Floral Pillow Scarf, you will be all set.
