Cozy Sherpa Lazy No Sew Pillows

I needed to change the four pillows in our couch. The ruffle on the last ones started curling up after 6 months of use. They served their purpose, but it was time for a change.
 Since I'm just too busy lazy to use my sewing machine, I decided to make some quick, no sew, wintery replacements.
So, I made four, warm, sherpa pillows just like this.

Simply tied with burlap and a festive, holly pick tucked into the knot...so-o-o perfect for our couches.

  I found this throw, in Walmart, for just $12.98. It had the warm and wintery look that I was after.

And it was large enough to cut four equal squares to cover the fronts.

 First, each pillow got placed into a pillow case and then I folded up the ends... kinda like a package. Next, I hot glued a 3 inch strip of velcro to hold the flap closed and wrapped it with it's burlap bow.

We turn them over for comfort when we watch t.v. and flip them back to their showy side when we go to bed.

Ha-ha...look who was hiding underneath the throw!
  "Gucci," he's our cuddley, "puppy" pillow!
Isn't he a perfect match!
