I love the idea of having pillows for all the seasons/holidays of the year. I drool over Instagram (follow me!)  photos of perfect couches styled with perfectly mismatched pillows. BUT the reality is, where would I put all those pillows in the off season?

How to Make a Pillow Cover from a Dish Towel

Over the past year, I've come to a conclusion. I don't want a lot of pillows! However, I do like to decorate for the different holidays and seasons. Pillows are an easy way to do that. My solution? Pillow covers! I use the same pillows all the time, but change up the cover to coordinate with the time of year. The covers fold up flat for easy storage that doesn't take a lot of room.
