Pottery Barn Inspired Poinsettia Pillow

164Christmas is fast approaching and I still have some projects I want to try this year, so I was happy to get this one finished under the wire…my Pottery Barn inspired poinsettia pillow!

PB poinsettia I knew the moment I saw this pillow in the Pottery Barn catalog that I was going to have to try to copy it! I love it! I even made a trip to Pottery Barn to check it out. It’s a little jewel…even prettier in person!

088 However, it looks as though I am going it alone again today since our co-host Baby Kitty seems to be busy communing with an interesting visitor at the back door! So here I go…

page It was really easier than I thought…
1. I made a 12 inch square pillow out of burlap. Theirs is made of a linen-like fabric, but burlap matched their color and I already had it in my stash.
2. Next, I cut leaves out of ivory felt in three different sizes…five of each size… and pressed each one in half to give the appearance of a real poinsettia. Theirs is hand-stitched down the center, but I was hopeful that pressing the leaves would give that appearance since time is not something I have a lot of right now.
3. I pinned the largest leaves first and then hot-glued the ends at the center to the pillow.
4. Then, I pinned the layer of the middle-sized leaves and hot-glued them as well. The final layer of the smallest leaves (not pictured) was added in the same way.

109 Finally, I added a cluster of little jingle bells in the center, hot-gluing them one at a time.


124 And here it is! Miss Isabella was surprised to wake up from her nap and discover a new pillow in her chair! The pillow behind it is new as well…made from a Goodwill sweater for about $3.00.

137 Here’s a final look! I have added a little burlap rosette to the sweater pillow. I think I am going to enjoy this one! Stay tuned as I still have a few last-minute tricks up my sleeve!

  16. The pillow is fabulous and I can't believe the only sewing involved is just for making the basic pillow. Love the red one behind it too. That Miss Isabella is so funny. How dare that pillow sit on her chair? :)
    Have a great weekend,
    Babs

  35. You are really making me to itch to make something. This PB copycat is just lovely and I think you could leave it out all winter since it's burlap and white.
