DIY Color Blocked Velvet Pillows
By Holly Wade
Not only is velvet trending right now, but it’s perfect for the holidays, even when it comes to decor! I love velvet on so much more than just my clothes, so I found several bright colors to make these color blocked velvet pillows to decorate my home for winter. Something about velvet makes my home feel cozy, and the soft fabric makes them comfortable to lean on.
Sewing these pillows is easy enough for a beginner. One side is color blocked with 2-3 colors (my favorite is the triangle) and the other side is a solid color. This tutorial is for the triangle pattern, but you can achieve the straight blocked pattern with the same instructions, just different shapes. Note that this tutorial is much easier with low-stretch velvet fabric (rather than velour) if you can find it.
