I don't think this item is particularly creative
, but it is frugal and oh I don't know.
What do you all call mending and fixing things to be useful again?
Today I took DH's favorite pillow and washed it. Yeah. Not all pillows are washable. This one had some kind of fiber batting in a big square folded up into pillow shape. He likes a nice flat one. So the washing was fine except it came out lumpy. I tried to straighten it. Put it in the dryer with tennis balls and dried. Lumpier. Worked and worked and worked on it but couldn't get it flat and straight again.
Ah-oh. Ruined his favorite pillow. Figured oh what the heck and cut it open on one end and half the long end. Straightened everything outside and put it all back together and sewed it up again on the sewing machine. Now it's sitting out in a laundry basket on a lawn chair in the sun to make sure every trace of moisture is gone. Once I have the pillow protector and case on nobody but me will be able to see the funky seam.
