I just told you about my kilim pillow covers that were getting a little rough around the edges. Here’s how I fixed the pillow covers and made them look like new (well, old but new) again. You could use this same easy, forgiving technique for any pillow covers (not just kilim) that are coming apart at the seams—whether ones you already have or ones you find at a thrift store and upcycle.
Not into sewing yet? Please consider trying. Even if you’re not planning on making your own clothes anytime soon, I highly recommend having a sewing machine just for little home and decorating fixes like this. For me at least (read: impatient person), using a sewing machine is so much easier than trying to mend by hand, and so much more satisfying than tossing or passing over something awesome just because it’s a little rough around the edges.
