I have a major crush on woven wall art this year! It’s completely on-trend, and I love all of the fun colors it can incorporate. I don’t have one area that I’d like to fill with my own wall hanging, so I got to thinking of how I could make my own without having to remove some wall art that I already had. I decided to make a DIY Throw Pillow featuring a Woven Design!
Throw Pillows at the store are expensive. Even at discount stores, they’re at least $15 each. I don’t know about you, but I have the “I can make that” disease, and so I leave the store empty handed every single time. Luckily, my throw pillow didn’t cost me $15 to make.
First, cut the pillow to you desired size. I chose 13.5 x 13.5, leaving 1/2″ for a seam allowance. Then, put the good sides of the fabric together, pinning where necessary. Here’s a simple pattern that might help you:
Once your pillow is all put together, it’s time to start working on the woven design! Cut several pieces which are approximately 12″ long, and one piece that is about 6 inches long. Lay down the short piece, and then use each long piece to create a slip knot onto the short piece. Here’s an example of how to create a slip knot.
Once you’ve made one section of the woven piece, create another in a coordinating color. I cut mine at an angle to give it a little bit of depth and interest. Then, i filled it with some poly-fil I purchased and stitched up the opening.
I don’t know whether my pup really enjoys the pillow or just likes being the center of attention. I’ll let you decide:
Have you ever made a throw pillow before?
