Leather Pillow on the Cheap Tutorial
I saw the most awesome leather sofa pillow covers on the Pottery Barn website last week. I just can't justify
spending $90 bucks each for covers.
I went to our local charity store and bought two leather jackets, one for $1.00 and the other for $5.00. I cut them apart at the seams. I laid the pieces out on the floor and pieced it back together like a puzzle to find a pleasing composition. The front of the brown one has a different seam line than the back, but looks equally nice. Same thing with the light brown pillow, the two sides are seamed slightly different but if you work it like a puzzle before you sew, it will look nice. These are 16 inch square. They really call attention to themselves. I just love them.
