A Pillow Form Solution : :

When my favorite brand, Soft N Crafty Premier pillow forms go on sale at Jo~Ann I always stock up! At any given time I typically have at least a dozen, in a variety of sizes, piled in one corner of my sewing room since I lack the space in any of my cabinets and shelves to accommodate that many pillow forms. It always looks a little messy since they never seem to want to stay neatly stacked together. Well, last month I finally discovered a solution, and because it's been such a good, multifunctional fix for me, I thought I'd share with those of you who might also be looking for a way to store these necessary pillow forms, quilt batting, Poly-Fil, etc...

Boho Pouf : A Pillow Insert Solution

While shopping for a new hammock on Amazon a few weeks ago this Boho Ottoman Patchwork Cover popped up in the "frequently bought together" area on the page, and right away I thought of filling it with my pillow form stash!

The colorful, scrappy patchwork fabrics go so well with my style and I love the little tassel details!

It ended up being the perfect, extra-large size cover to fill with ALL the pillow forms I currently have unused, at least a dozen ranging in sizes from twelve to twenty inches!

The kids love sitting on the pouf when they join me in the sewing room and I love not having to see those plastic covered pillow inserts! I'm even considering ordering a second to house my prepackaged batting, to have one in front of each the matching chairs I have it my sewing room.

I hope you find this solution idea helpful!

How about you, do you have any tips/tricks for keeping your sewing space organized that you'd like to share?

  6. Clever, and so pretty! Looks like there are other color choices, too, in case somebody wants to mix it up. :) I love the idea, this could sure tidy up my mess of batting!

  7. Oh my gosh, I just went and bought two of them. I have a huge brown leather ottoman I am going to get rid of and have two of these instead. I don't make many throw pillows like you do so I am going to stuff them with cheap pillows from Walmart or the dollar store. Thank you for the link.
