Dear Sewing Superstar,
Sometimes all it takes is a little change to make a big difference in the way your living space looks. One of the easiest ways to do that is to add throw pillows. And why buy them when you can make your own?
Our Throw Pillows for Every Season Sewing Collection from We Like Sewing has bold and bright, cozy and creative pillow projects that will freshen up your living space without a ton of work. And you don’t have to be an expert sewist to make these pillows. Our step-by-step tutorials walk you through the whole project from beginning to end!
Take another look at your scrap stash. If it’s anything like mine, it’s probably quite sizable.. Imagine creating your own unique fabric with small scraps from your stash, using the technique of crumb quilting. Quilters from beginner through advanced can use this technique to create one-of-a-kind fabrics. Make our Ultimate Scrapbuster Crumb Quilt Pillow for yourself, or choose a friend’s favorite colors and patterns and make a customized pillow they’ll cherish.
This project gives you a great way to use up those random quarters and small scraps to create something uniquely your own. Keep this project on your To-Do list and know that you always have a way to put those scraps to good use!
We can’t really have too many throw pillows, can we? OK, maybe there’s a limit somewhere, so you might want to pick and choose which throw pillows make the cut. Well, you can’t go wrong with a one-of-a-kind pillow you create with our Floral Splendor Quilted Throw Pillow pattern. This is another great scrapbuster project.
You make this pillow your own with your choice of colors. The combination of floral shapes with geometrical motifs in a diamond pattern will make this new pillow your favorite. Use fat quarters to create this pillow using both quilting and applique techniques to expand or build on your skill set. Add your own embroidery details to give the pillow some extra texture, and you have a charming throw pillow for your sofa. You may even want to make a pair!
If you want a pillow quilting project with a chic country feel, make this Up and Down Pillow pattern. You might think this looks familiar; it’s designed to match the Up and Down Mini Quilt pattern from our August issue. The pillow pattern is a series of beginner-friendly half square triangles that come together in an energetic group of colorful chevrons. Use our suggested colors or pick from your own color palette! Chances are, you’ll want to make more than one of these!
Nothing says Christmas like a proud, stately reindeer. And as stunning as this pillow is, you’ll find that it’s a cinch to sew and really inexpensive to make. The combination of classic Christmas plaid with creamy solid fabric gives your reindeer room to really stand out! Add a band of gold bells and you have yourself one beautifully festive pillow! And you have two options when you create your reindeer — a heat press or freezer paper and paint. You pick the method that suits you best, and prepare for oohs and aahs all around when your Winter Day Reindeer Throw Pillow shows up on someone’s sofa.
All the patterns in our Throw Pillows for Every Season Sewing Collection come with detailed templates, pattern notes, and a complete list of the tools and materials you need to succeed. Ready to make the perfect pillow? You don’t have to be an expert sewist to make these projects. We’re with you every step of the way. Let’s go sew something beautiful!
