Here’s another Valentine’s Day DIY for you. This XOXO pillow turned out super cute. There’s nothing better than pom pom and metallic foil lettering. I don’t think I need to remind you that metallics are so hot right now. When I found out a way to transfer metallics onto fabric I knew I had to do a project STAT.
First cut your white fabric, you will need two pieces 10×12 1/2 and one piece 12 1/2×16 1/2. Sew your two different trims together, making sure that they are offset so that the trim has a light pink-hot pink pattern.
Next sew the trim to the edge of the 12 1/2×16 1/2 piece of fabric. Make sure the pom pom trim is facing inward. Start 3-4 inches away from the corner of the fabric, sew as close to the top edge of the pom pom edge.
Keep sewing around the edges of the fabric you meet with the other end of the trim. Make sure to match it up with the pattern and cut off the excess.
Next take your smaller pieces of fabric (10×12 1/2) and sew a finished edge on the one of the longer sides of the fabric piece.
Pin the smaller pieces of fabric onto the larger piece with the trim. Put the side with the pom pom and the finished edge of the smaller piece facing together.
