I could spend hours in Anthropologie and I would be lying if I said I haven’t. I like to wander around and pretend it’s my house and that all the customers are my friends who came over for an incredible dinner party. There is just something about that environment that makes the depths of my soul happy. I always want to bring a part of that home with me, but usually, my wallet stops me and tells me to DIY it. So that is what I do. This DIY Boho Pillow is inspired by Anthropologie but made out of a skirt from the thrift store.
Its cute but the big bonus is that it only cost a few dollars to make. Like $4 total. Isn’t that crazy?! Now I know that you want to make your own!
SEW Cute: DIY Boho Pillow Tutorial
- boho pattern skirt
- sewing machine
- seam ripper
- needle and thread
- lace fringe if the skirt doesn’t have any
- Using the seam ripper, carefully remove the fringe from the bottom of the skirt.
- Lay your skirt so that one of the side hems is facing towards you. Then cut up the side so that it makes a 90-degree angle with the side of the skirt. Do the same thing to the other side so that you have 2 rectangles of fabric that are sewn on the 2 short sides.
- Flip the fabric inside out and sew the two sides together with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Be sure to leave a few inches unsewn.
- Step Four: Using the hole that you left unsewn, flip the fabric right side out.
- Stuff your pillow with stuffing. I like my pillows really full so I used a lot, but you can play around with however much you prefer.
- Fold the raw ends of the small hole under and sew it closed.
- Add your fringe along the two short sides. Handsewing is probably the best bet here because the lace is delicate.
I love this little DIY boho pillow in all of its boho and fringy glory. It is just so perfect and totally my style. It also provides the perfect amount of back support without taking up too much room on your chair. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
