Sew Old Pillowcases Together To Make Floor Cushions

Throughout the years I have collected dozens of pillowcases. Mostly due to the fact that my tastes have changed or I've had to purchase excess pillows for visitors, I have quite the stockpile in my linen closet. Now that I'm moving into a smaller space, I won't need to keep such a large inventory of pillows and pillowcases, and I found the perfect use for them.

Inspired by the Bed In A Bag from Great Life Trading Co, my pillowcases would be perfect for these floor cushions. It's such an extremely easy DIY that there's honestly no point in purchasing an already constructed one.

Roundup five old pillowcases that you don't use anymore, because we all know it's much better to repurpose than buy new! Sew them together at the seams, leaving the openings clear so you can later insert pillows. Once they're all sewn together, insert pillows! You can either leave the sides open or better yet — add snap buttons so the pillows stay put, but are easy to remove when you need to wash the pillowcases.

This is such a great way to repurpose old pillows and pillowcases that would otherwise collect dust in the closet or end up in the trash.

What do you think of this DIY floor cushion?
