It's true, throw pillows are probably the cheapest and most effective way of giving your decor a facelift! My sister-in-law is obsessed with them and has passed that obsession on to me. I don't have a zipper foot for my sewing machine yet so decided to do a sleeve instead. It worked well enough, but in the future I would make the overlap larger as the pillow is a little visible at the back. Anyway, this is all good practice for making items to sell.
