Sometimes you just have to admit that you will never wear that bridesmaid dress again - why not actually get more use out of it by turning it into a cute ruffled pillow? It's quick, cheap, and easy thanks to these great instructions on Examiner.com.
I am always surprised at how expensive accent pillows are: this little round one at the end of the bed is $220 from Neiman Marcus. Perfect! Buy your bridesmaid dress, wear it cheerfully once, covert it into a pillow, and you'll actually be MAKING money.
Not all accent pillows can say they were once worn out in public either. Take that, Neiman Marcus.
