I am on a DIY kick. Like most artists, I go through my highs and my lows. Sometimes I find myself overwhelmed with inspirations and other times I am grasping for creativity. Aren't we all a little mad here? I have been wanting to make these velvet floor pillows for awhile. I guess this is about as Fall as I will get.
You know I love velvet anything. I love it even more when they are faded jewel tones. These are super easy to make and trust me, I am an amateur sewer. In about one hour, I sewed three of these bad boys. I added these pretty tassels for more boho vibe.
These pillows will be in Aurora's new room as her tea party floor pillows.
They look gorgeous on her bed too.
I made this huge wall art out of an old painting I found at Goodwill for $10. Every sassy pants need her own anthem. So this is what you will need for these velvety floor pillows.
-a yard of cotton velvet
-the same color thread as your fabric
-sewing machine <optional but it makes life easier>
-24 inches by 24 inches pillow form < I got these at Joann's fabric for 40% off>
First I cut two squares of 26 inches by 26 inches. Put the right sides together with the tassel in each corner as such.
Sew three sides and leave one side opens to insert your pillow form. Once you finish sewing the three sides, turn the case the right side out. Insert your pillow form and hand stitch the last opening. Now if I were a better sewer, I am sure there are better ways to sew these floor pillows but this was just a lazy girl's way of doing it.
And if you are going to have a tea party, you might as well do it on velvet pillows. Crowns are optional but always preferred.
