Saved from the landfill these pillows are made from strips of fleece that are normally thrown away. Each strip of fabric is a different width and creates a really unique look. These two pillows are backed in a sage green and measure 13". After making a pillow the leftover pieces of fleece are then used to fill it.

When making a pillow I sort through the strips to find the right lengths and colors. I sew them each individually until I have the desired size I need to cut the pillow. It is a tedious process but well worth the time. I've been able to save garbage bags full of fabric by doing this. I have plenty of strips at the moment so expect more stripey projects to pop up in the near future.

Those are really pretty! I've been saving all my fabric scraps, and that looks like a cool idea to do with some of them. Also, I know what you mean about stuffing the pillows-I've been saving all my yarn bits, string bits, and too tiny scraps of fabric for stuffing. Saves money, saves the bits from the landfill, and it prevents more pillow forms and such from being made.
