Pillows Cover And DIY Pom Pom PillowLet’s talk about how simple cushion covers are to make and you can get incredibly creative with them too! This tutorial will guide you through sewing two different styles of cushion, a simple zipper cushion cover AND a pom pom cushion! I was watching a video recently and came across these super cute pillows. They were round with fuzzy pom poms on the side and they seem to be everywhere online. It is the perfect combination of the boho chic style that is all over Pinterest! These pillows retail at SUCH a high price point. I found one at H&M but they have been sold out for months! I just had to make a pom pom pillow for the nursery to add that fun pop of colour to the room! The fabric that I chose was this gorgeous deep yellow cotton velvet that I bought from Spoon and Spindle. It is the perfect luxe soft velvet fabric and when I attached the fuzzy pom poms it just added another layer of texture. I also made a linen pillow cover in a rustic burnt orange which is the perfect accent colour for decor accessories against the green/grey wall. These pillows add the perfect amount of colour to the room!

- 3/4 meters of fabric (you will need two, 20″ x 20″ square pieces for each pillow)
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
- Sewing needle
- Cardboard for making the pom pom maker
- Measuring tape
- For the pom pom pillow:
- Yarn (thicker yarn will give you a fluffier pom pom e.g. Lion brand wool ease)
