Throw Pillow Round-Up

Well, I have not done as well as Nicole on posting about my Thirty Before 30 list as I've been working on it.  Part of that is because I haven't done as well at WORKING on it as she did.  And part is just the general lack of blogging motivation the last few months.  But I have accomplished some things from that list, so over the next few weeks I'll try to post some of those results.

#7 on the list was finish my throw pillows.  In retrospect, that was just an ill-thought-out goal.  I'll never be FINISHED with my throw pillows!  There are too many fun new ideas that pop up each week, and I get too bored with the status quo to ever be DONE making throw pillows.  Silly.

But I think that coming to that understanding accomplishes the same goal.  The point was to cross something off my list so that it wouldn't be hanging over my head making me feel discouraged from my lack of completion and like I hadn't worked hard enough or stayed focused enough.  That's done.  Now that I've shifted my paradigm, the joy really is in the journey!  So I've decided instead to show you all some of the MANY throw pillows I've bookmarked over the last little while.  I will also add a linky at the bottom so that you can share any you like and recommend as well.


 Now it's your turn!  Feel free to link up ANY pillow as long as a link is provided to give credit to the originator.  Share pillows you've made or want to make.  These don't have to have tutorials, either.  Just something that inspires you to create!


  1. Thank you for collecting this and sharing these wonderful ideas! I, too, love to think of new ways to make pillows. I am just know learning to sew, but really enjoy creating new things!

  2. I have a pillow problem, yep, they are everywhere. I even have huge baskets in each room full of extra pillows and throws. And that WestElm Rosette pillow has had me drooling for months. I think it could be very easily done... I should just attempt it already so I can quit coveting it every time a catalog arrives, grin.

  3. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words! I really enjoyed making the pillows and love that they are something special that will be kept around for years.

  4. Hi Kelli, Great to see you again and thanks for sharing this great roundup on Craft Schooling Sunday!

  5. Thank you for your sweet comment. The fabric glue has held on strong so far. I would highly recommend it! I am not big on handstiching either, but found the yo-yo flowers easy to make. I saw where they had a yo-yo guide on the aisle with the embroidery hoops. The guide looked easy to use, and would help make the yo-yo flowers a little bit more alike. Thank you again for hosting this party of great pillow ideas!

  6. Wow! those are some PRETTY pillows!! :) I'd love for you to link up to my new linky party, Tute {Yourself} Tuesday!
    The linky will be open until Wednesday evening. :)

  7. I have a 30 before 30 list as well.. I will be 30 this year!! I love those pillows...
