Yesterday I was looking at the daily sales on One Kings Lane. I have found some things I really like at a good price (and some things at not such a good price). I think the website does a pretty good job of highlighting products that are in style and are somewhat reasonably priced. But if I put something in my basket, I always do a quick check online to see if anyone else is selling it at a similar price. So when I saw that they had a Prints and Patterns category yesterday I was eager to see what they had for sale! So I got a good laugh out of what I found…
It appears that their version by Jiti uses a down insert (good for comfort but not for outdoors). I used an outdoor pillow form. I spent about $13 on fabric (1 1/3 yards for 2 pillows), $14 for each insert (a 20×20 outdoor pillow form) and about $5 for 2 zippers for a total of about $23 per pillow. I spent a couple of hours making them, after experimenting with putting in a zipper. It is funny because it took me months to decide on a fabric for the pillows. I even considered a couple of the Jiti pillows that were on sale at OKL earlier in the spring, but the price seemed high. So I gave myself a little pat on the back.
Have you ever made something and then found it for sale somewhere?
