A few months ago, Tiny Prints reached out wanting to discuss the possibility of a DIY collaboration.
I was floored and ecstatic.. After a few emails back and forth, we decided on a tutorial featuring their photo pillows and adding a pom pom trim. If you have visited my blog over the last few months, you’ll remember that I am addicted to sewing with pom poms.
I’m happy to be sharing the full tutorial over at the Tiny Prints blog today. Head on over and check it out… It’s only 10 steps and in a few hours you can make this a one of a kind printed pillow!
Only a few materials and you are good to go…
I know, I know.. I’ve said this a few times before.. But I LOVE sewing with pom poms. This tutorial is a little different, so there are a few things to consider before you get started in adding pom poms to your Tiny Prints pillow:
- The pillow comes with an invisible zipper.. Depending on how comfortable you are with zippers, this DIY can be super easy or on the more difficult side..
- For the easy DIY route, chose a rectangular pillow and add trim only to the short sides. The invisible zipper is at the bottom, so you won’t have to fuss too much with it.
- Did you know there are many sizes of pom pom trim? Try Googling “pom pom trim” and “ball fringe” and see all the options that pop up. I bought a large 5/8″ diameter pom pom because I wanted the pom poms to jump out at each end..
I couldn’t decide on my trim color, so I bought both black and white. I went back and forth on what color, but in the end chose the black. The white trim felt like it was a little too safe.
Head on over and check out my tutorial. They have incredible posts full of inspiration on their blog..
