The Hubs: Then what is the point of having them if you can't use them?
Me: To make the bed look nice and pretty.
The Hubs: It looks nice without them. I don't see the point of pillows you can't sleep on.
Me: Well you don't want to use them anyways because then they get flat and dirty.
The Hubs: Well we can just throw them in the wash if they get dirty. (Meaning the ENTIRE pillow, not just the cover)
So there ya have it. I haven't gotten it through to him on that level yet therefore I am only able to get pillows that have no embroidery or beading or anything of the sort. *SIGH*. At least it gives me guidelines right?! Anywho I often keep my eyes peeled for pillows that would work and when I saw a tutorial for Mr. and Mrs. pillows I knew I had found a gem. I even got positive remarks from The Hubs!!! I started the search for the materials I needed right away and it wasn't too long before these fellas came along.
Aren't they just lovely?! I used a warm tan linen with really subtle horizontal white strips. I needed some more pattern in the room so I knew this would do the trick. They are "comfortable" and they have a envelope enclosure backing so they are also washable, solving both of my
problems requirements!! These pillows are miracle workers I tell you.
Have a great Wednesday :)
