Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.

Bed pillows will eventually become soiled, through the accumulation of sweat and potentially saliva and of human skin cells.

The mirrors will reflect natural sunlight streaming through the windows and brighten the whole room. Some homeowners even report a savings in energy costs by simply reflecting the free light from the sun.

Home accents are the things such as bookcases, magazine racks, storage, shelving, storage cabinets, jewelry amoires, pillows, mirrors, coat racks, clocks, wall arts, accent tables and many more. These pieces will transform a dry, dull and lifeless home into something alive, vibrant and chic. Most homeowners would just buy furniture and would usually forget to put the right accent that goes with them. A sofa set needs the right centrepiece on its center table. The bedroom needs the right mirror that blends with the room's theme or motif. An ordinary living room will have a sophisticated and modern look if it is accented with a wall art. A study room can also have a modern flair. There are stylish and contemporary shelving or storage pieces that can create a modern look to an ordinary study room. A contemporary bathroom can also be transformed with a new look when it has the right accents such as a mirror and a decorative wall art.
