yay for pompom week! to catch up, you can learn how to make pompoms 3 ways here.
this is a fun, quick project that can be done with very basic sewing skills.
supplies \\ yarn, pillow form, fabric, thread
cut out pillow fabric \\ my pillow was a 16″ square pillow, so i cut the fabric to (1) 16″ x 16″ for the front. the back was cut into (2) 16″ x 10″ pieces.
fold one long side of each of the 2 back pieces of fabric over ~ 1/4″ & press, then again another 1/4″ & press.
stitch the folded sides twice for a nice finished edge.
lay one back piece on top of front piece, lining up edges, folded edge toward center, right sides together.
lay second back piece on other side, lining up edges. pin, stitch around edges with a 1/4″ seam allowance, and turn right side out.
make pompoms. i chose 8 different colored yarns for a fun rainbow look. using upholstery thread, stitch each pom to the pillow, making sure to stitch through the center of the pom several times.
toss on the couch and squeal!
