Skill Level:

Project Courtesy of: Jessica Abbott

Additional Information



  • Various 1-yard cuts of ribbons or trims
  • 1 yard quilting cotton fabric
  • Fabric glue
  • Basic sewing essentials (sewing machine, thread, scissors, etc.)
  • Polyfil


  1. Cut (2) squares the desired size of your pillow, plus 1" for seam allowance. This will give (1) front & (1) back pillow pattern piece.
  2. Place a piece of tin foil or wax paper underneath the Front Pillow pattern piece. This will protect the work surface.
  3. Cut ribbon into strips the same width as the pillow.
  4. Determine ribbon placement, and apply a thin strip of fabric glue where ribbon will be placed. If it helps, use a ruler to ensure straight lines.
  5. Lay the ribbon on the glue and press gently, smoothing out any wrinkles.
  6. Continue steps 4 thru 6 with all of the ribbon until the entire front of the pillow has been covered. Allow to dry fully overnight.
  7. Place front and back pillow pieces right sides together, matching up all 4 sides, and pin. Make sure any dangling ribbon trim, like poms or fringe, is INSIDE the pillow in the middle.
  8. Sew all around, leaving a 5" opening on the bottom edge unsewn. We will need this opening for turning the pillow in the next step. Trim seam allowance and any excess dangling ribbon edges.
  9. Turn pillow right side out through opening in the bottom and finger-press out all corners.
  10. Stuff pillow with polyfil, until it is nice and smooshy. Pin opening closed and whipstitch.
