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.

Sew Your Own Kids Floor Cushions

After sharing Charlotte’s handmade pouf this morning, I wanted to give Susan from Living with Punks another moment in the spotlight. I featured the floor cushions she created for her wee ones almost three years ago when KOD was just a baby. Oh me oh my… her fabric choices simply blow the inspiration right out of the water!

Easy as 1, 2, 3 Numbers Floor Pouf

diy numbers pouf

Charlotte from Ciburbanity recently participated in a contest where she was challenged to create a sewing project using fabric from Waverly. Since she doesn’t consider herself a skilled seamstress, Charlotte knew a copycat project was the way to go and found an adorable numeric pouf for inspiration. She combined her lovely blue floral fabric with canvas drop cloth to put a fun twist on Land of Nod’s comfy math cushion.

Secondhand Sheet to Stylish Rosette Pillow

Steph from Building This Nest had been craving some change to the throw pillows on her couch and loved the look of a pretty rosette pillow cover from Anthropologie. Unfortunately, $58 was definitely not in her budget for a cover alone, and she knew she could make it for way less. Using a $3 sheet from the thrift store, Steph sewed up a cover to fit a pillow form she already had and saved herself a pretty penny. Well, 5,500 pennies actually!

She fell for a petal pillow that’s full of texture and knew the fun, girly style would be perfect for the bed.

This morning I featured a DIY pintuck duvet cover, and tonight I am back with another sheet-to-duvet cover transformation that’s perfect for adding texture to your bed. Whitney from A Mommy’s Life with a Touch of Yellow was inspired by a quilt from Anthropologie as well as a drool-worthy knock-off by KoJo Designs to finally make her dream bedding a reality. Whitney made a few changes, including creating a duvet cover instead of a quilt to make washing a cinch. Even after several washings, Whitney says her sewing is holding strong!
