DIY Rosette Pillow

I’ve been so excited to start Christmas decorating! It’s completely underway at The WGC and I couldn’t be happier bringing out the Christmas totes!

Today, I couldn’t help but share one of my Christmas projects for the year, a DIY rosette pillow!

You all know that I’m a neutral girl, I just can’t help it, and that I love stripes. This pillow combines a few of my favorite things…

Here’s how you make it:

I started with two of my favorite fabrics…

Then, I determined the size of my pillow and folded the fabric on top of itself with the wrong side out…

I lined up all the sides and sewed a straight seem on each side…

But left an open section at the bottom to turn it inside out…

Then I trimmed the corners…

And flipped the cover inside out and ironed it flat…

Once the cover was done, I added my fabric rosette’s, which I’ll show you how to make later this week!

I simply laid them out how I wanted…

Then held the rosette in place and used a needle and thread to tack them in place…

Once I had them all in place, I began stuffing the pillow…

And sewed the opening closed!

Simple, easy and so, so pretty!

It’s perfectly simple and neutral and slightly feminine….

I am in love with the fabric roses…

And I can’t wait to see how it looks with everything else I have planned…

For now, it’s happily living in the breakfast nook, but I can’t wait to bring it into the living room with the rest of our “in-progress” Christmas decor!

  1. Oh JOY! It’s darling. Luv it bunches.

  2. Super cute I love it! Would you mind sharing your fabric choices? I was thinking pillow fabric ticking and drop cloth for mine.

    • THANK YOU so much, Jaime! For the roses, I used muslin— it works perfectly to make them! Tutorial coming this week! And for the pillow fabric, I used black and white ticking fabric that I bought at Hobby Lobby! I love that ticking like crazay!
      I hope that helps! :-D
