      I’m glad you enjoyed it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hobby Lobby also has a lot of pillow covers in their stores. They were on sale last week. I love pillow covers because I can have the look of new pillows every season without all of the storage issues normal pillows bring.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YES! Great way to refresh! Thanks for sharing!

  3. K. Nazario

    I had too many so I started buying just covers on Amazon to change out the look without buying so many pillows! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      LOL! I’ve been doing that too! I also like to grab the seasonal ones as it makes it more fun!

  4. mamasweetpea

    anyone see a good deal on outdoor throw pillows… let me know. Thanks. I started using covers to change out the look too for different seasons/holidays… so fun and festive.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      We’ll keep an eye out! Be sure to check your Walmart! They often have cute outdoor throw pillows in a stand alone bit for around $5.

  5. Kelli

    I make winter pillow covers out of sweaters I pick up really cheap at Salvation Army. I’m not a great seamstress or anything, but pillow covers are easy and the sweaters at thrift stores are often under $1!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s a fabulous idea, Kelli! Thank you for sharing!
