DIY Shut Eye Pillow Case

I have always been a huge fan of pillows. This past year, I upgraded from a life stuck in a twin bed, to a full bed. Needless to say, I was quite excited. I think most people would be happy to just have some extra space. Not me! I am happy to have more room for more pillows. Okay, so that was partially sarcastic, but I really do love a bed full of pillows. Recently, I found a pillow I really liked, and decided to make a shut eye pillow case.

I currently have about 10 throw pillows on my bed, so these new pillows are a great addition! They look adorable when placed next to each other, or you can make one pillow with both eyes. That is probably my favorite part of making things myself; you get to customize items to your exact specifications.



For the past few months, I have been a style advisor for Dormify, a dorm decor website. Right now, I am competing in a contest on Dormify to be on the design team for their next sorority apparel line. Use the code CU-TRIDELT-16 to get 10% and support me in my dreams! This code is valid from now until April 1st.


As always on Sophistication and Sparkles, my goal is to help you get great deals! With this DIY video, I show you how to find something on the internet and make it yourself for a fraction of the price. As a college student, I know the budget struggle, so I always want to share options that are fabulous, yet affordable for your lifestyle. I aim for things to be well below your average price range, so you too can be like me—ballin’ on a budget.
