Some Interior Decorating

Hello!  Happy Summer!

Let's face it, there's not a lot of decorating that can be done in a small space like a van without taking up room that may be needed for necessities.  Or it will make the small space too cluttered.  Or something you just don't want to bother with.  For me, I wanted to do a  few things but still have the items useful as well as decorative.  At least that's the way I see it at this point.  As you know, I am not living in the van so that tune could change in a hurry, but it's the way it is at this point.

Pinterest is such a marvelous resource for anything and everything you think you may want to try, and I got this idea from there.  Throw pillows with NO SEW covers that can be changed out with the seasons.  Or changed because you wanted a different color scheme (like that is going to happen frequently in the van!  Ha!), but the point is, the covers are easily changed, don't take up a lot of room, and can give an instant lift for a different season or a different mood whether you're an RVer or dwell in a sticks and bricks.   What more could one ask from a throw pillow? :)

This is super easy to do.  You will need fabric measuring twice the size of your pillow plus the height of your pillow. Wash and iron the fabric if you desire (trim frayed ends)

*Lay the pillow on your fabric, right side of fabric down, facing away from you
*Fold the fabric so the top and bottom of it meets halfway on the center of the pillow
*Fold the ends like wrapping a present (into points)
*KNOT the ends loosely and adjust the folds to your liking then pull the knot tight.  DONE!

Tuck in the ends if you want, or leave the tails out.  Either way is way too cute!  Easy peasy and you can change out that pillow cover any ol' time you want.
