I made new pillow covers and they make me happy! I do this a couple of times a year with cheapo fabric from the dollar tables at Wal-Mart or leftovers, and it's so easy; I don't even do zippers anymore... just make an over-lapping opening in the back and it only take about 10 minutes per pillow. Yay!
Now I just need to wash my sofa slipcover... ugh. White slip-covered furniture is the way to go.... just toss the covers in the washing machine, and swap pillows for a quick change/face lift. Bleach is my friend. :)
