As I mentioned in my furry pom pom ball tutorial, I’ve created several items to make a luxuriously chic room ensemble that any tween or teen girl would love to have. Heck, even my sons are fighting my daughter to use these items because they are so incredibly comfortable and so soft! They are having a blast lounging with these fur-rific hand crafted items.
Faux fur has been in style for a while, and it’s not going away any time soon.  I used several luxury fabrics from Shannon Fabrics to create a couple of room decor items.  These pillows and throw blanket will be perfect for back to school.  You can see the tutorial for the purple Pottery Barn Teen inspired study lounger on the Fairfield World site.  The throw blanket and written instructions for the body pillow tutorials are on the Shannon Fabrics site (link coming soon), and the ottoman makeover can be seen on HomeDIT’s site (link coming soon).
I created a short video clip so you can see how easy it is to make the fabulously furry hot pink body pillow.  This pillow is so incredibly soft and is great for lounging anywhere!  This body pillow will bring comfort to anyone who is away from home for college for the first time.  
Don’t worry if you’re a sewing novice or don’t have a sewing machine.  I’m showing you how to do this with just a needle and thread!  Check out this short video to see how you can quickly make this body pillow, then scroll down for a complete supply list as well as a link to the written instructions for the body pillow.
