Candace at Sparkle Power posted this easy removable pillow cover tutorial. These covers make washing a breeze. I agree with Candace, it's nice to simply be able to slip the cover off and replace it with another when you're ready for a new look. If you have kids, grandkids, pets, the ability to wash the covers is appealing. You could even make them out of holiday fabric and change them with each of the holidays throughout the year. You could also use fabrics in colors that you might decorate your home with, over the holiday season. They would also be great for kid's bedrooms, and playrooms.
