I absolutely LOVE anything Missoni, and I was searching the internet to find the perfect pillows to put on the new hanging bed in our gazebo. (....more to come on that later...) So, of course I fell in love with several Missoni pillows that I found. But oh my goodness, they were all over $200 a pillow! Yikes!
So, I'm NOT going to be paying $285 for a pillow, unless it comes with a cute young man with a silk fan in one hand and a dirty martini in the other! (giggle)
But I'm definitely the person who's going to be on the look-out for fabric that reminds me of the Missoni chevron, and I got lucky at World Market and found this fabulous knit scarf that totally made me squeal when I found it. Plus, it was on sale for 1/2 off so I got it for $12.50. Score! The scarf has all the colors in it that I was looking for. The turquoise and coral pillows I put it with are perfect.
As you can see by the step-out photos, I simply cut the scarf in half. Then I folded the halves over and sewed up the sides on the sewing machine. Next, I stuffed them with old pillows. (I never throw anything away :-) Then I grabbed a needle and thread and sewed the opening closed. That's it!
Now I have to decide whether or not to add pompoms or tassels to them. What do you think?
