I made this throw pillow for the couch. A couple of years ago I made a fabric wall hanging out of this Ikea tree fabric. I only had enough fabric to make the fronts of two 14″ pillows, so I used the corduroy that I used for my ottoman slipcover for the back. I tried to think of a creative way to avoid having to put a zipper in, and came up with using buttons. I’m really happy with how it turned out, I was going for a “woodland” feel and I think I got it! I guess it’s probably not hard considering there are trees on the fabric. I have a matching pillow cut out and ready to sew that I need to finish, and am also working on a tutorial for a button pillow, which I will post next week.
