Vivika Hansen DeNegre loves pillows, especially when they have an interesting design. Bolsters and tufted cushions are fun items to have around your home because of their unusual shape. Make this fun, small projects to make, and you can freshen the decor of your room by changing them with the season. This pillow has fabrics from FreeSpiritR's "Chicopee" collection by Denyse Schmidt.
