Pompom Pillow

Friends, I really have mixed feelings about this pillow.

It looked so good before I put the pillow form into it.  The pompoms looked more like banners or buntings - which was the goal!  They were nice and swoopy.  But once I put the form in, the curves sort of straightened out.

Craft Fail?!

Switched to a zipper foot after that hot mess stitching on the dark purple row!  YEEesh.

But I do love that I have a new friend for Foxy Pillow!  I think they'll look fab together... After I fix this one.  :)

Envelope style, ala From An Igloo.

Good idea, poor execution methinks.
Either the poms need to be totally straight, just like plain ol' stripes, or way waaay more swoopy.  This in-between business ain't cute.  :P

Hey, happy Memorial Day weekend everyone!  Hope you all have good ones!  I'm off to NYC tomorrow morning!  Woohooo!  I'll take tons of pictures, especially in the Garment District!

Love to all, 

*ETA*  Thank you all SO MUCH for your kind words about this pillow!  I think I was looking at it with a judgmental craft-stank eye.
It's pretty cute, I guess. ;)


  1. I think it is adorable! :) Thanks for the inspiration!!


  2. I think you're being too hard on yourself - it's cute. I love the idea of the garland-ish pillow. I've seen another similar that this reminds me of, but it had triangles of cloth instead of the pom pom. Your version seems like much less work than sewing all of those individual triangles on!

  3. Nice! Very nice. Love the buntings! Keep it up!

  4. I love it! See no prob at all!!

  5. Thank you gals! I'm warming up to it - I think I *might* be being too hard on myself. :)
