To celebrate Waverly Fabrics 90th anniversary, they sent me this beautiful fabric which I turned into a super comfy DIY Pillow Lounger. Check out the DIY tutorial and more information on their Facebook contest!
In honor of national sewing month, Waverly and Jo-Anns Fabrics are having a Waverize it! contest. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to find out more and enter to win!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
- 2 + yards of 56-60 inch wide fabric (Mine is c/o Waverly)
- Pillows 4 (or 5 is you use more than 2 yards of fabric)
- Sewing Machine
It helps if you have a big space to work on this, I used my livingroom floor.
Layout your fabric on a large flat surface.
Put your pillows on top to measure.
I had just over 2 yards of fabric for this project (c/o waverly) so mine worked best with 4 pillows.
Wrap your fabric around your pillows and pin your ends, with this right sides facing each other.
TIP: Let your fabric fold over itself on the back side. This will make an envelope fold that will help keep your pillows inside.
Using your sewing machine sew your two end seams.
Trim off any extra fabric.
Turn your fabric right side out.
Lay it out on a flat surface and measure for your pillow pockets.
Measure your fabric and your pillows and make equal sections for your pillows.
Pin your sections and use your sewing machine to sew your seams on the outside of your pillow case.
Trim off extra threads.
Slide your pillows into each of the compartments, they should fit a bit snug.
While this isn’t my typical type of post, this fabric from Waverly was just perfect for a pillow lounger. We just recently (this past weekend) moved and now we have a bigger living room. (After living in Brooklyn, anything is bigger!) And we’re trying to keep the living room as open as possible, so a lounger like this is perfect for my daughter, who’d rather be laying on the floor anyway. I saw this idea on Pinterest a long time ago and had been wanting to make one, it’s just such a great idea.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you make!
