So, I have admitted to being a pillow addict and I have been searching out throw pillow tutorials. I have gotten a tad bit crazy about em lately and even purchased a new sewing machine so I could start making some charming little decorative pillows for my home as well as for my shop.

After doing my research, I have been delightfully surprised there are so many inspiring ways to make a pillow. Well, I have been so inspired that my husband would prefer not to accompany me to the fabric store because he knows that I cannot just walk in and grab and go. I just fall in love with the gorgeous fabrics and the numerous textures and styles.

I want to share with you some pillow perfect inspirations I have stumbled upon in my quest to become a DIY sewing queen.


Get crafty with the basic throw pillow. This simple design is a quick way to spruce up your decor. They actually make a room look totally different. All you need to create this charming accent pillow is basic sewing skills and a machine, some nice fabric of your choice, cutting utensils, throw pillow insert and fabric glue.

Cut out two square pieces of your fabric about an inch to inch and a half larger than the size of your insert. Sew the two pieces of fabric together with the wrong sides facing each other. Leave about a 4 or 5 inch opening on one side of your pillow cover. Once you are finished sewing the fabric together, cut the corners diagonally so that they look nice and professional when you are done. Be sure not to cut into the area you have sewn. Simply cut the edges of the corners. Now you are ready to turn your pillow right side out, push out the corners of your fabric with your fingers, stuff in your insert through the opening you left and carefully close the opening with your fabric glue. Now you have a cute throw pillow to add some gorgeous style to your home!
