Oklahoma--OK!  I fell in love with this kitschy scarf and turned it into a floor pillow.

This turned out to be a very simple project. I found some huge pillow inserts at Ikea that were big enough so that the whole scarf could be used for the pillow front-sides and for the pillow back-sides I just found some fabric in my enormous stash. After stitching up three and a half sides I stuffed the inserts inside and hand-stitched the opening to finish them up. They are big and cushy and I especially love that they aren’t packed away somewhere but out in the open where I can see them.
