Yes I knew when I saw this pillow that I had to make it!
I'm a big copy cat!!
Not only did I make one, but three!!
I saw this lumbar pillow in Pottery Barn's Catalog..
I knew I had to make it. The girls would love this cute pillow
to add to their festive decor.
Soooooo. Do you want to know how?
I made a few adjustments to the pattern.
Mine is 12" x 18" finished. Theirs is 12" x 24".
I knew I had white burlap in my stash,
red craft paint,
a stencil brush,
Poly fill from an old pillow
handmade stencil (Graphics for stencil found here)
Let's get started.
I cut my fabric 13" x 19" .
Cut 6 pieces at once.
Took my handmade stencil placed a piece of cardboard under
my burlap and proceeded to stencil onto the fabric with my
red craft paint.
I added on the a few embellishments to make it look more
like Pottery Barns.
Once it dried I placed right sides of fabric together and proceeded
to sew a 1/4" all around leaving a good size opening to turn out and stuff.
When stuffing with poly fill I always use a chopstick to push the filling into the corners and pack it tightly.
Once you have filled your pillow it's time to pin the opening shut and now sew a 1/4" seam all along the outside edge.
Gives it a finished look.
Now add your bells......It's that simple.
I know I used a different colour of burlap and my bells are not
red but the girls loved them.
As Always Thanks for stopping by!
Love it when you leave a message!
