These beautiful pillows really appeal to me!
I love the vintage botanical look of them.
I love the feel of fall and Halloween in an elegant look!
I did not love the price….
Here is the DYI version I made from fabric remnants I had on hand.
I used free vintage botanical images and printed on fabric with an inkjet printer.
Let me show you how!
I chose the pumpkin for my pillow and simply took a screen shot of it.
I used a graphics program to add some text….the french word for pumpkin.
Then I printed the image on lightweight canvas that I ran through my inkjet printer.
I adhered the canvas to freezer paper before I printed.
Simply cut a piece of fabric that is 8 1/2 by 11 and iron it to the shiny side of the freezer paper.
Then after you print, tear off the paper and you have a beautiful print of any image or words.
I wanted a pretty casual look for our family room.
I used a piece of rust colored fabric for the backing.
I center the canvas print on it…and ran some pretty plaid ribbon over the edges.
I used the pillow sham back to make it really simple.
You know the drill…
- right sides together
- trim the corners
- turn right side out
- insert pillow form
(but seriously, if you need instructions on how to make a pillow….let me know and I can be more specific)
Knock-Off- $0 if you have a cupboard full of stuff
$20 if you have to buy freezer paper and ribbon and fabric
Now that fits the definition of Sweetwater Style!
Bet you can do this too!
