Years ago a local furniture store in town donated their old fabric swatches to school. No one wanted them. I took these home because I loved the colors. I put them in my craft tote and forgot about them until this winter when I was doing some cleaning purging.
I decided that they would make some awesome pillows. Since the swatches were precut and all the same size, the project was ulttra simple.
I had enough for three pillows and a super large tote bag. All for free. Now that is thrifty!
