Pattern Description:

A Mini-Makeover for your Favorite Room

My family is room is a comfortable spot where we all gather and spend our evenings. The carpet is beige, the couch is beige, all of the throw pillows were some mismatched relative of beige. Aside from the light yellow-green walls, the entire room was essentially one big neutral. I set out to fix that recently with some accessories: a new colorful ceramic lamp, a few crocheted table toppers, and new covers for all of those uninspiring pillows.

If you would like to breathe new life into one of your spaces, or even if you'd just like to cover one little pillow, this project will show you how. These simple covers are removable and washable, and don't require the use of zippers or buttons.

How to estimate the proper amount of yardage
