Pom Pom Trim Pillow


I fell in love with this sun kissed yellow canvas fabric with white medallions, the minute I laid eyes on it.

And when I read this delicious fabric description, I was completely hooked.


"This *bottom-weight fabric from the Lisette Collection tells the story of a creative woman who travels the world. She collects objects and images during her travels and filters them through her unique aesthetic to create a fresh and contemporary personal style."


I want to be that woman!

So instead of travelling the world, I made a pillow that reminded me of far-off places I hope to go.



I really love the way the white pom-pom trim compliments the design.

I'd been wanting to make a pillow with pom poms for a long time. My sis-in-law made a few that I LOVE, so I thought I'd make a go of it.






Sewing pom-pom trim on pillows really is quite easy, but I do have to say it takes a little patience to make sure it's on just right.



By the way, for those of you who aren't sure what *bottom-weight fabric is (like me a few months ago), it's a term used to describe fabrics with a heavier, sturdier weight; often used for pants or skirts.

The feel of this yellow fabric has a slight texture to it, is lighter than typical canvas, but more substantial than lightweight cotton. I really like the weight and feel, and have some other projects in mind for this type of fabric.

Hope it's sunny where you are!
Believe it or not, it's actually hot in Seattle. Amazing!
