Fun, simple throw pillows for the house!
I made these fun pillows for my little sister's Christmas present. I love them so much I think I might make some for myself now! :)

  • How to make an embellished cushion. Buttony Throw Pillow - Step 1
    Step 1

    Once the materials are gathered cut the base fabric (pink or blue in my case) to 14 inches by 20 inches in length. Cut the contrast fabric to 14 inches by 9 inches.

    Match the 14 inch sides together with the "right" sides facing in. Sew along this side to create a long piece of joined fabric.

    Next, place buttons on fabric and attach with needle and thread. I just sewed them as if they were buttons on my shirt. Nice and simple. :)

    Step 4

    Once the buttons are attached fold the fabric piece in half with the "wrong" sides facing out. Sew along the edges leaving a "stuffing" hole in the seam. Turn the pillow inside out and prepare for stuffing. I use a small dowel rod to point flat the corners. I also typically press the pillow before stuffing.

    Stuff stuff stuff til the pillow is fat and happy! Next, either hand stitch or return to the sewing machine and seal the "stuffing" hole. Fluff the pillows and cuddle! :)
