Shag Pillow Cover

by Crafty Lumberjacks

We thought our easy DIY shag pillow was so on trend and people would love it…but we we’re SO wrong! Haha! This is one of our most hated projects.

We’re both starving artists and live a bohemian life in Astoria…so it fits our style perfectly, but clearly some projects aren’t for all people! Haha

We got a cute inexpensive plain pillow case from H & M Home and added our yarn fringe.

You can see us make the full project on HGTV Handmade!

We still stand by our pillow and have no regrets…even though it looks like a mop. We made it with love…that’s all that matters!

Ouch! I couldn’t find your post on the HGTV fb page, there was just too much to wade through, but I can see that people like to speak their mind in the comments over there. Some of them are brutal!!
I think it’s fun, I’d probably do more layers, make them shorter, I like the angled layer so maybe more of that… of course that would take much longer and it would cease to be a quick fun project!
What would be really funny would be to pop a face on the fabric first, then if anyone parted the fringe they’d get a surprise! Ooo, or a secret message, that could be cute too….

I like it, it’s different! Anytime my husband gushes that "the world" will love a certain blog project, "the world" does not. LOL! Visiting from BFF party.

That’s a creative way to make over a plain pillow. We are so glad you shared your post with us at the #HomeMattersParty last week. Hope you will link up again when the party opens this Friday!

I found this great pillow in a link at the Over the Moon link party where it was the most viewed post. How could anyone not like this pillow?
