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


  • 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



  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.

I am an over seventy year old granny who will be a great-grandmother by the end of the year. Love your patterns especially baby patterns that I am now in search of. Can't wait to hear if it is a boy or girl to decide what colour and exactly what I am going to knit and crochet next. The bundle is getting big and have to be posted to New Zealand and we live in South Africa. Thanks.

This is fabulous, but what is double sided fusible (sorry do not recognise the term in England) perhaps someone would let me know.

Hi LindyLops, Double sided fusible Function Fusible webbing is fabric, plastic or paper treated with adhesive. It is used to attach fabrics without stitching, generally by the application of heat. Types Fusible webs come in two types: one- or two-sided, meaning one or both sides are treated with an adhesive. Read more:
