In steps project "Green Pillow". We recently bought a new bedspread (that is adorable by the way!). We bought it in the clearance section, and it was a steal! The only problem was since it was on clearance, it didn't have all the cute pillows that went with it. I love decorative pillows! I decided I was going to make a pillow that would be multi-use, therefore working with more than one aspect of green week. I also tried really hard to use only the material I had on hand.
First I cut out white material for the pillow part.
I cut out one piece that was 17" x 12 1/2" for the back of the pillow. For the front I cut out a piece that was 17" x 16".
I took the front piece and folded the end up 2" and ironed it in place.
Next lay the front piece on top of the back piece and sew together. Remember to leave an opening so you can stuff the pillow. Trim the corners so they aren't bulky.
Turn the pillow right side out and iron the edges flat, turning in the material at the opening you left.
The green tulle didn't really match the style in my bedroom so when I put it in there I just took it off.
I love the idea that I can change out the band for any time of year. Look out holidays I now have some universal decor!
I think it would be a great idea to make a few more. This was so easy! I'm sure in the future there will be more pillow posts, because my bed still looks bare!
