I love this pillow…..don’t you?
But….it certainly isn’t Sweetwater Style to pay $30 for ONE pillow…
Especially when I have all the ingredients in my “stash” to make one for almost FREE!
The Knock off version has been on my Pinterest “Blog Party Ideas” board for a year!
Time to get busy….
This great tutorial provided by Steph over at Crafting in the Rain
was simple to follow!
I had some white felt…..and I cut the pattern pieces out….so far so good…but it just didn’t seem substantial enough!
Then, I remembered that I had a Geiger boiled wool jacket that I picked up from GW for $5…
It was worn and shabby….I bought it for the fabric….
Thought I would use it for mittens or something…
The white boiled/felted wool was PERFECT for this project!
The Pottery Barn version is linen…..and I didn’t have any linen…..but I do have a lot of burlap!
Since no one is going to actually USE the pillow……the rough texture of the burlap isn’t a problem.

The jacket even had these little gold buttons that were perfect for the center….
Not too shabby….
Actually it is “Shabby Chic” don’t ya think?
I have a trip planned to GW later today…I need to keep an eye out for some other fabrics that would work to make a couple of these for gifts…..or maybe a GiveAway!
I will keep you posted!
Have a Great Day!
