Pretty Peacock Pillow

By:

Liven up your living room or bedroom with this Pretty Peacock Pillow.  This easy sewing pattern is a great way to use up yarn scraps and this is a fantastic project for those who are still new to sewing.  Perfect for all kinds of decor schemes, this DIY pillow pattern works up quickly and easily.

Pretty Peacock Pillow

Materials:

  • Base fabric to cover pillow
  • Colored fabrics for appliqué (reclaimed tees)
  • Double-sided fusible
  • Pillow insert
  • Embroidery thread *optional*
  • Sewing Machine
  • Iron
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Peacock Pattern

 

Instructions:

  1. Measure your pillow to determine the base fabric size. Don’t forget to add seam allowance. See easy pillow cover instructions here.
     
  2. Trace pattern pieces onto fusible. Following the directions on package, apply the fusible to the wrong side of fabric; cut out pieces.
     
  3. Position body on lower center of pillow.  Once you are happy with placement, peel the backer paper of fusible off; place and iron as directed on packaging.
     
  4. Continue to place feathers and fuse in place.  I like to start at the bottom and work from side to side. This will help keep the appliqué uniform in shape.
     
  5. You may wish to add a straight stitch or zig zag stitch along the edge of appliqué for that extra detail.
     
  6. I like to add simple hand stitching around the upper feathers to enhance that handmade look.
