• DIY: Big Bow Pillow

    This is the big bow pillow I made yesterday. I started with this tutorial to make the actual bow. Although I made both the bow and the middle piece much much wider. I wanted a big fatty bow. Really, it’s just a big tube with a small tube wrapped around it. Super simple. Like a big bow tie.
    But I wanted another layer coming around the back for the pillow. I made a third tube (same width) for that with unfinished edges and strung it through the back of the bow. Then I pinned it all down on the front side and sewed the pillow together like normal (I just did the easy two panel method in back instead of a zipper)

    Ta dah!I have another cool pillow in the works so stay tuned…

      I think I could actually make this. I'd like to make some pretty pillows for our bedroom, since I think it will ultimately be fairly neutral otherwise. Thanks for sharing.
