Ever notice how a pillow can change the whole look of a room? You can change pillows with the seasons or even with your mood. Making a pillow is actually one of the easiest DIY projects you can do. The fact that you can easily make a pillow in about an hour, makes this a must do. Which is why this week I am showing you how I took a design inspiration pillow and replicated it. I’ll show you how I learned to install an invisible zipper closure to create a custom pillow. diy custom pillow
A Pillow Project
I don’t know about you but when I make something that I want and it turns out well I feel a sense of accomplishment. Such as it was with my recent pillow project.
Design Desires diy custom pillow
I decided that I wanted some new pillow covers for the Euro pillows on my bed. Wanting to extend the yellow-gold color of my curtains & artwork, I knew I wanted the pillows to be made from a yellow patterned fabric.
I like using inspirations to jump start my design projects. So I found an inspiration pillow and was able to get very close. Here’s the inspiration pillow…
I found some fabric at Joannes awhile back in the clearance section and knew that it was pretty close to what I was looking for. The pattern was so similar to my inspiration, it almost looks like a reverse or negative of the inspiration fabric.
Do you make your own custom pillows? Have you tried using an invisible zipper closure? I would love to see what you created. Please leave a comment below and be sure to share pics of your pillows.
