Here are my finished handmade throw pillows. Remember how I found the perfect fabric at Target by using one of their curtain panels? I turned that one panel into six 18″ square pillows plus two small bolsters for my wicker accent chairs!
The easiest way to cut out a perfect square is to use a rotary tool. Mine is still lost from our move…bummer, but scissors work too. Notice I backed all of my teal fabric with a ivory burlap…which made it possible to make so many pillows!
Here I am sewing my pillows…notice the small seam allowance. I cut my pillows 18X18 so they are nice and full when the pillow form is inside.
And here is a stack ready for their zippers. I put zippers on all of them because I will most likely need to wash them…and I like to change out my decor color often. So next time around I can reuse my pillow forms again.
This project cost me next to nothing…and it completely transformed my blah boring black couches from icky to yummy. Delish! I could just eat them up!
