How to Make Chic Pillows: theDIYdish on Studio5!

February 16th, 2010

Click on the video below and find out how to make these!


Although the “official launch” of The DIY Dish web show hasn’t begun, we are thrilled to have a chance to show you some fun techniques for your home decor on KSL/NBC’s Studio5 program!

If you are new to our site, be sure to sign up for our free newsletter! You’ll also be entered to win a Janome sewing machine or embroidery machine!

Here’s what we’re making!

Download the free pattern for the felt flowers here.
(Be sure to watch the video above so you can find out how to make these!)

And although Tuesday’s show is more about how to make those unique flowers for embellishing pillows, we knew you might like to know the measurements we used for making the pillows themselves. So here they are:

Have fun!
(We’d love for you to share it with your friends, too! Feel free to embed the video on your blog!)

    You girls are so talented and I just love your pin cushions. The video was great and I am also a visual person. Can’t wait to try making one. I just signed up for the absolutely wonderful machine giveaway. Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to more great ideas from the two of you. THANKS!!

    Loved your first episode! You really look like you’re having fun and I liked that your felt rolling wasn’t absolutely perfect! Some times “easy-peasy” doesn’t look so “easy peasy” when you don’t see the actual process but only the finished step!

    Hi girls!
    I’m sorry to say I was not able to watch your show as the video just would not play!! :-( I tried several times but it was soooooooooo jerky and the sound was terrible. A friend of mine is also having problems. Any suggestions???

    I really want to do these pillows for my bedroom. I noticed in the fabric store that the fabric you used was heavier. I have found some fabric I like, but one of them is the heavier canvas and the rest are cotton. Is this going to be a problem? I’m obviously a very amateur sewer.

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
