Lumbar Pillow Wraps

Want a quick and easy way to update the look of your solid color pillows, regardless of the size or shape.  Create Pillow Wraps.

Long story short:

We needed lumbar pillows for our outdoor chaise lounges.  The chaise lounges from  Abbyson-Living-Palermo-Outdoor-Adjustable-Brown-Wicker-Chaise-Lounge-Set-of-2-92a56865-9491-476f-bc75-2b0c09164779_600

  • The four sets I liked (can’t just have one set), the price tag totaled $170.32!  So I needed to think of something less expensive.lumbarpillows
  • Purchased a set of 2,  Sunbrella outdoor beige lumbar pillows 12″ x 24″ for $59.99 on  Sunbrella fabric is the best for outdoors. (spill proof and fade proof) so I didn’t mind spending more for Sunbrella pillows since this was the only set I purchased.

  • Went to JoAnns with coupons and I was able to buy six outdoor fabric prints very similar to what I wanted on Overstock, plus jute piping for $34.00. 5a IMG_8721fabric
  • I made reversible pillow wraps to slide on and off the pillows to change the look.  See below for the tutorial.
Here is one set that is reversible. The print side has a stripe band, the same stripe on the reverse side.10 CollagePillowsleeves2


This particular print was a remnant that I was lucky to find.  This wrap is not reversible.
