Upcycled Toss Pillow

One of our toss pillows got a stain (oops!) 

But why toss the toss pillow (har har) when you can just upcycle it and cover the stain? Besides, Grandma's guest bedroom needs a toss pillow on the bed. So I measured out a strip of fabric...

Got my handy fabric mod podge

Coated one side and stuck it right over the stain.

Now for some cute factor! My Grandma does crochet, so I have been using random little elements of it throughout the room. I grabbed three granny squares and coated the back with the mod podge...

Stuck it right on top. Notice I gooped a lot on there because it's yarn and has lots of nooks and crannies. So to get it to really stick i put enough on there that it would seep in. 

Some corners gave me a little trouble so I used Liquid Stitch to tackle them. 

I layered like so...

And let it dry over night


It works out perfect and I quite happy with it. It has the main colors of the room (pink, maroon and gold) all in one, snazzy!
