Picture of Look for Less: From Crate&Barrel to Coral Floral Pillow

Recently, I noticed a beautiful Crate&Barrel Julian Orange Pillow in the spring catalog. However, I was looking for something a little more affordable. As I strolled through Jo-Ann Fabrics, I noticed a fabric similar to the Julian Pillow. After a quick rummage through some hot pink fabric, I found one that fit the look.

I like Dana Willard’s tutorial to make a throw pillow tutorial. She recommends using the same measurements of your pillow for your cover. Adding more length and width to your fabric will make your pillow look oversized and too loose. However, I wanted a little buffer, so I gave myself an extra 1/2 inch all around.
