Of course you do!
Because for the price of one table-runner at that magical place called Target, you can make 5 pillows! FIVE! That comes out to $3.59 per pillow!!
I originally got this fantastic money saving idea from my cuz on (her blog.)
We have two kinds of fabric on the table-runner: the embroidered yellow and orange and the solid tan color. This is nice because it will give you a variety.
Here are the directions for the embroidered fabric:
(when previewing this blog John stayed on this GIF for one minute solid making ironing noises...oh how i love that boy)
For the tan solid fabric I followed the same directions until number 5. Once I got there I used an iron on transfer sheet and ironed on my design to the fabric.
This part is where you can really get creative because you can make it pretty much anything you can think of!
I searched on the internet and found some pictures of some old letters that were sent to America from Hermosillo, Mexico (where my John served his mission for two years).
The date on one of the letters was particularly special. It was sent on our wedding date, only 126 years earlier!! (well actually on the 25th of May but I edited it slightly...)
