Use fabric swatches to embellish plain throw pillow covers.
Those fabric swatches from textile shops used to showcase their stock of textile designs can be upcycled for your plain throw pillow covers. Some textile shops give away these swatches and they throw out old swatches that aren't in their stock anymore. You can ask to have them instead.
