Colorful Ruffled Circles Pillow Cover

Jessica from Sew Homegrown created a DIY version of a ruffled circles pillow she spied at West Elm. She says she just had to spice it up with more color though and chose scraps from her favorite fabric designer Anna Maria Horner. There is so much I love about this pillow from the vibrant colors to the ruffled and slightly disheveled look of the circles. This is a great scrap buster project that you could easily customize to match your décor.

Burlap Peace, Love, and Joy Pillow

Most of you know I am not much of a seasonal decorator. I know… GASP! BUT… I do love a pretty holiday pillow, and this one from Maryann at Domestically Speaking is drool-worthy. Plus, it only takes burlap and paint, which means cheap! Maryann used the “old school” freezer paper stencil method for her text, and just look at those beautiful, crisp lines. She also hand stitched her cover thanks to a broken machine, but I love how it adds to the rustic, grain sack look.

Scrap Buster Fall Pillow

Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew shares a fabulous pillow cover tutorial to dress up those tired throw pillows this fall. Best of all, this is a “scrap buster” project designed to use up some of that scrap fabric that is taking up valuable closet space. For this fall-inspired pillow, Allison chose fabrics that simulate the colors or fallen leaves. However, Allison points out that the design possibilities are pretty much endless. Just check out the flower pillow she made using the same technique.

Leaf and Acorn Applique Pillow Cover

Leaf and Acorns Pillow

MJ from 517 Creations spied a lovely autumn pillow with a large, brightly colored leaf and acorns gracing the front. Since the almost $100 price tag completely obliterated any idea of actually purchasing the pillow, MJ simply made her own. MJ stitched a vein detail onto the leaf and then used Heat N’ Bond to attach it to the pillow fabric. She finished it off by stitching around the edges for a lovely fall applique.

Jann from Newton Custom Interiors has been busy making pillows for the double bed her granddaughter will soon be graduating to. She fell for a petal pillow that’s full of texture and knew the fun, girly style would be perfect for the bed. Jan lovingly cut out and stitched 160 little circles to make this pretty pillow for granddaughter and says it was definitely worth it. How sweet is that?!?

With the Fourth of July just days away, I wanted to share a couple of projects that Debbie at Mountain Breaths created in honor of the occasion. Debbie replicated a patriotic pillow she saw in Pottery Barn’s catalog using fabric she actually picked up at Wal-mart years ago. What’s cool about Debbie’s pillow cover is that it requires absolutely no sewing. You’ll have to head over to Debbie’s site to read how she did it!

You all know I love a good pillow DIY, and Javeriya from Believe & Inspire brings it with this cover that’s full of fluff and frills. Javeriya was able to customize the colors of her pillow so they fit into the theme of the room to perfection… and all for the low low price of about $4!

Poinsettia Pillow

Heather from Thrifty Stories had been oogling Pottery Barn’s poinsettia pillow for over a year now and finally made her own with a zipper closure for easy storage.  This pillow is both elegant and fun with the jingle bell center. My kids would have a blast shaking this pretty pillow whenever they could get their little hands on it!
