I saw these pillows first on Pinterest. Cool, huh? But as I began to investigate where to find them, this is what I found out:
Viva Terra $159
Way too expensive for a pillow!!!
The perfect solution? Make it myself!
I bought a 1/2 yard of fabric, then cut the fabric into a 18" x 19" rectangle. I measured out 1" from all the sides, marking them, so that my words did not go too far onto the edges.
My letters were about 2" in hight, and I left about 1 1/2" in between each line. It was a little bit of a challenge to get some of the phrases on one line, but it worked in the end.
I used a stencil my daughter had in one of her art books. I stenciled it all in pencil first.
The two panels when I was finished.
Time to sew them together.
Sew them with right sides together and leave a little opening to turn it inside out and stuff it. Stuff, sew up the hole, and there you have it, $159 dollar pillow for the cost of 1/2 yard of fabric!
The finished product with my designer throw pillow that I made out of a $1 skirt.
