20 Easy DIY Throw Pillows ... and they're CUTE!

So, I'm pretty much a self-proclaimed pillow hoarder and it's kind of a problem. 

Not only is my taste level becoming substantially more sophisticated, but my wallet unfortunately has not followed suit. Even in stores like HomeGoods and Marshall's, I find myself gravitating toward the higher price-tags without even knowing it. As I'm sure you can imagine, my husband no likey and neither does my hall closet. I'm simply running out of room! Then I got to thinkin'. The very first sewing project I ever took on was a pillow cover, back in the 9th grade. I hold a degree in Fashion Design, which requires no less than 500 hours of logged sewing time. I'm clearly more than capable of creating all of these stuffed squares that I love at half the cost, so why wasn't I doing it? It's simple. I just needed the right inspiration to give me that little kick in the rump I needed and lucky for you, I found all you'll ever need to get started. Below are 20 easy pillow tutorials that are not only cute, but super chic. Like "girl, where did you get that pillow?!" chic. My favorite is of course the cactus, great for a nursery or kid's room.
