~thrifty thursday~{moroccan pillow diy}

I thought I would jump on the Moroccan trend with a little bohemian diy for you today.
As you know I am pillow obsessed, so this was a fun project for me!
It started out as always, with me out thrifting.
I always check the "pillow sham" section and this past week did not disappoint.

First let me show you the "after"


The before wasn't so bad, it just needed a little fringe and bling.


This is a standard size sham.
I bought 8 yards of fringe and 6 yards of sequin trim.
I wasn't sure if I was going to use gold or silver, so I bought both.
All the trim was around $25.00, the pillow itself was $1.99.


I used this glue, that's right, no sewing!
I chose it because it's washable and permanent.


I added 2 rows of the fringe to each of the gold stripes, covering them up essentially.


And then every other row I added sequin trim.
I went with the gold because the pillow already had so much gold in it.




I let it dry overnight before adding a king size down pillow to make it extra fluffy.


I was really lucky to find a pillow sham that already had the Moroccan vibe to begin with, but I believe any sham with fringe could be made to look like this with enough trim and bling.



What do you think?
Should I attempt a Moroccan wedding blanket DIY?
xoxo

I don't follow how you took a standard (square) sham and created a rectangular
one that accommodated a king size down pillow when you were finished. It feels like
something is missing here. Marie

Anonymous~The standard sham is a rectangle, not square, and since the king pillow insert is down it squishes in. Hope that clarifies for you.

Have you had experience washing things that you have made with the liquid sewing stuff? Was wondering how things that are made with it would hold up in the wash. By the way LOVE IT!!
