Pillow Designs: Gorgeous Trims

These pillows were REAL easy to make. I used a form shaped pillow from a manufacturer that specialized in this design w/ the cut out centers that offered an opportunity for "surprises" or messages within the design.

Fabric is by Basic Grey and the gorgeous appliques and trims are from Expo International.

Simply, the heart pillow was created to offer two different looks if you turned the pillow over, blue on one side with the brown cut out section, and brown on the other to coordinate but offer options with it's elegant flourish applique. The seam is embellished with beaded trim.

This design was a little tricky. The entire pillow is covered in the blue fabric, the cut out is covered with brown fabric. I created 4 long strips of brown fabric, folded over and finished. The strips are positioned on the back of the pillow in a pattern to mimic the square cut out area of the front. The strips follow around the pillow to the front side and are tucked into the cut out area beneath the insert. The square formed on the back with the strips is not a solid square but looks like it because of the jeweled applique. The edges are finished with coordinating beaded trim.
