This mountain pillow is the second project in our holiday DIY gift series with Merrilee Liddiard of . You can check out last week’s project, a lovely bleach-dot clutch, by clicking here. Enjoy! —
I don’t know about you, but I’m loving all things mountains of late, and this simple snow-peaked pillow is just the thing to sate my need for high altitudes while staying warm and cozy indoors. — Merrilee
Read the full how-to after the jump . . .
- thick fabric for the base of the mountain (I used a solid heavyweight gray suiting fabric for mine.)
- white fabric for the snow peaks (I used a shearling white faux fur fabric for my peaks.)
- mountain pillow pattern
- corresponding thread
- sewing pins
- sewing machine
1. Using the pattern, cut out two mountain pieces. The pattern is 20″ x 20″, so if you don’t own a large-format printer, you can either print it out in tiles and tape them together, or you can take it to your local print shop and have them print it out in a large format there.
7. By reaching into the lower opening, turn the pillow right-side out. Make sure peaks and corners are turned out nicely. You can use a wooden dowel for corners if you wish.
