This is such a fun and creative idea. Those fleece blankets are everywhere during the holiday season, usually on sale, which makes this project even better! Even if you cannot find one of these blankets, there are many inexpensive options to choose from. I love projects where there are a ton of different things you can do!

Very practical and creative project! I have made actual stuffed pillows for accents, but this idea is even better for practical reasons if your own sofa pillows have seen better days, yet are still OK form wise! I have used regular pillow cases folded inside themselves for an end flap with my sofa pillows, but it looks like what it is... Pillowcases! So using a blanket or decorative fabric you may have on hand makes a ton of sense! I am thinking of some lovely tapestry fabric scrap that this would serve perfectly! Thanks for sharing a great idea!

I love this DIY project! The idea she gave about putting a running stitch along center flap is a great idea for keeping pillow looking neat. I would love to make these and add a gold silhouette of a reindeer. I could even see adding tassels on ends. Cute idea!
