It shocks me how expensive throw pillows can be, even without the insert! Especially when it’s so easy to create the same look with a few different supplies. I really love the third pillow and it’s painterly black spots (also those fans on the wall!). Click through for all the instructions to make all 3.
This pillow is so fun - like a bright rainbow for your couch! Even better the triangles are made from soft and warm wool felt. This is a great sewing project for beginners as it’s just sewing straight lines. But it still has a lovely professional look. If you’re not into rainbows, go for tonal colours or neon brights.
Pillow Pet | Go Make Me
How cute are these pillows?! Even if you don’t have a pet to immortalise in pillow form, there are plenty of adorable animal pics on the internet for you to use. I have seen these done in single colours like pink and blue which can make them a little more kitschy/grown up. A great project to get your little ones involved in!
Doily Skull Pillow | Born Again Creations
I used to hate doilies - my mum would put them under all her plants. Yikes. But now I love them (not under plants still!) on tops, in jewelry and on home wares! I love the naughtiness of having a doily skull on a pillow. I would put this on a pale pastel coloured pillow. Or even better, add it to a tshirt!
Anthropologie Inspired Pillow | Stuff Steph Does
There were quite a few shops in America that I wish were here in Australia - Old Navy, Bath & Body Works, Gap, American Target… the list goes on! But one shop I adored was Anthropologie. Though it’s probably a good thing we don’t have it here because I would be poor (but have a gorgeous house!) That’s why I love tutorials like this - I can still get the look. And this is so pretty - the mix of fabric colours is gorgeous. I ain’t gonna lie, the sewing is not the easiest but the finished product is worth it!
DIY Stencil Pillow | Wit & Whistle
We all have little phrases and quotes that help us through the day - for me it’s the quote ‘Do the thing you think you cannot do’ by Eleanor Roosevelt. At the moment it’s stuck to my door with a little piece of paper, but I would love to have it on a canvas or pillow like this. There’s so many different songs and styles you could do too - great for a kids room with nursery rhymes or a gift to a friend with a quote that means something to the both of you!
Quick & Easy Pillow |The Complete Guide to Imperfect Home Making
I love this pillow! But then again, I’m a sucker for ruffles. My bed is a bit of a mish-mash of brands and bits. But overall I’m all about the comfort, so if I have anything decorative on my bed it has to be practical too, so I like that this is from a normal pillowcase but with a pretty ruffle to it.
Monogram Velvet Pillow | Martha Stewart
I never thought I would say I like a velvet pillow but I really like this velvet pillow. I think this would be particularly nice in a pinky velvet to go with my bedroom. I’m pretty sure this would take a while to stitch but it’s worth it, plus you can download the monogram letters too!
Minky Cloud Pillows | Sew4Home
I’ve been seeing a lot of cloud pillows at the moment, but I’m loathe to spend a lot on pillows because my tastes change so quickly. But I do love this design, and I also love the word ‘Minky’. Would that be a good little girl’s name? Off track. What was I talking about? Yes, pillows. Wouldn’t these be great as massive floor pillows? Great for the colder days when you just want to chillax with a book.
Drop Cloth Ruffle Pillow | Ink Blots & Polka Dots
Who would have thought you could create such a nice pillow from a drop cloth?! You could of course make this pillow out of any kind of fabric, but I like the slightly rustic feel & colour.
Pillow with Rosette Clusters | How-Tuesday, Etsy
Etsy always has the coolest DIYs, and this is no exception. I usually hate anything orange but this is actually really nice, a richer orange. A great pillow for adding to the massive pile already on my bed.
