I’m a sucker for a cute pillow, and I adore buntings, so I combined them together for a cute little bunting pillow cover. Wanna learn how to make one?
two pieces of canvas cut into 17×17 inch squares
5 or 6 different fabrics – cut into 2 inch triangles – it will take 12-18, depending on how full you want it
a sewing machine
accent color thread and white thread
Let’s get started. First draw your lines on the pillow lightly with a pencil or fabric marker. This will be the draping of the bunting. I used three swooping lines for the shape of my bunting.
Next take your coordinating thread and carefully run a tight zig zag stitch over all of the pencil lines.
Now your pillow cover front is finished.
Just sew it up with the instructions found in my zipper tutorial.
And then you’re finished – yay!
This cover can be made in so many color variations, the sky is the limit 🙂

Hi Gina! You just gave me an excellent idea on my next project. I’m going to redecorate and accessorize my living room for this coming summer and I’m thinking to change my pillows’ covers.
Your design reminds me of fiestas and festivals in the Philippines – the banderitas. It’s really nice.
What a cute pillow, thank you for sharing the tutorial with us!
And thanks for another Transformation Thursday!
