How to make applique pillows

appliqued throw pillows
I love throw pillows, and if I could, I would have my entire love seat, sofa and my bed covered in throw pillows of every shape and size. Unfortunately, I can't do that because my two year old loves to drag things around the house and it would look like a pillow bomb went off in my little house.

If you like pillows just as much as I do, and you have the room in your house for a few hundred throw pillows, Design*Sponge has a wonderful feature on how to make applique pillows. To make two pillows, you need four pieces of different colored wool felt, two 18" square pillow inserts, a sewing machine, an iron, thread, scissors, a computer and a printer.

I don't necessarily think you need to use linen for the pillows. I personally like to cuddle with my pillows, so I would choose a fabric that is a little more soft and fluffy. If you need other inspiration for making throw pillows, say, for a teenager's birthday, check out how to pillow like the pros, courtesy of Debra McDuffee.
