I love the unending possibilities that assail me and I could spend hours going through pictures and boards and DIY's and goofy stuff etc. etc. I actually have a couple of folders filled with pictures (from Pinterest) of things I want to recreate. I'll probably still be working on recreating the items in that folder when I am 80 :) (assuming there are no more additions to my crafty list that is).
Anyways, I came across this DIY pillow complete with instructions the other day, and I knew it was just what the Doctor ordered for my sitting room.
Here's the picture (I cant seem to find the Pinterest picture which was a collage type tutorial with the steps in pictures).
Source: PinterestUpon searching the internet, I was able to locate the tutorial complete with a free template (I sure wish I had seen this before making mine) on Design Sponge.
Here's My version.
I wanted Bright colors so I skipped the Color wheel idea and used a colorful print with a matching plain fabric. I also added large matching buttons on both sides.
I asked DH to help with the stuffing and he got a little trigger happy. lol. And the result is a pillow that looks about to explode...
I originally planned to make two poufs, but after sewing and ironing the 24 rectangles I had a change of heart and decided on a much simpler pillow in the same fabric to complete the look.
(Pardon the shadows, these pics were taken at night)
Did I mention I love my new pillows? I do :D
