Faux German Grain Sack Pillow

Hello everyone!

I have always wanted a German grain sack pillow, but they are just too darn expensive!  So, what's a girl to do?  Try to find a reproduction!  And that's just what I did.  I found this one on Etsy.  I tell ya there is nothing you can't find there!


This one is a nice big size, 22".  I bought it as just a pillow cover since I already had the insert.


It compliments the other pillows on the sofa too.  


So, if you ever decide you want something, there is a way to get it.  It may need to be handmade or even purchased as a reproduction, but there is usually a way!  

.

If you are interested in this pillow cover, you can find it HERE.

Hope you all have a great Fall weekend.  So glad that October is finally here!

Thanks for stopping by.

I just love that sofa and all the pillows. Makes me want to just sink down in it and take a nap in the middle of reading a good book. I have a stinking fake leather that is wearing think and we thought it was real leather, my hubby's choice. I prefer cool colors and soft fabric. He hates it too so next time we get what I want!

I love the pillow.

When I finish making all the banners for my giveaway, I think I will try painting a few pillows in that style. So fun!

I lvoe those German grain sacks too - and always cringe at the price tag. Reproductions are great - you got a good one! Loved your grey dresser too - sorry I haven't been around much - life is crazy! Caught up a bit today :)
