Bolster pillow tutorial.....Quick, fast and easy!

We have been busy revamping Ms. M's room! We have already painted it a beautiful gray color, added some really cute wall decorations, and have re-done her dresser! She's going for an elegant but still-girly french motif, with a pop of HOT PINK! Yeppers, that's right, HOT PINK! :)

Here's a quick and SUPER EASY PEASY bolster pillow tutorial for ya. I used what I had left of some cotton duck material that I purchased at Hobby Lobby about 2 years ago. The length was 38", but I'm sure when I purchased it it was longer, but it still made for a really nice-sized bolster for her bed! I also had a pillow that we no longer used, so I cut off the cover and used it for the stuffing! Reuse, reduce, recycle! Oh, and can you say FRUGAL?????LOL!

I love being able to use what I already have at home! It's a challenge for me, because if you're like me, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to go out and purchase new "stuff!". This time I was able to use what I had and I'm pleased with the results. Ms. M was thrilled with her pillow, I guess it was the squeal that gave it away!
