If you’re on the hunt for something truly unique for your living room, you’ve come to the right place. Today I’m going to show you how to make your own triangular throw pillow, perfect to accent the sofa or a cozy chair. All you’ll need for this project are basic sewing skills, fabric and a few other supplies. So let’s get started!
- 1/2 yard of fabric (any non-stretch type will do)
- Batting or stuffing from an old pillow
- Measuring tape
- Sewing machine and coordinating thread
Begin by cutting your fabric to the correct shapes. First you will cut two equilateral triangles, with 15″ sides. You will also cut a long rectangle that is 50×4.” Then pin the edge of the long rectangle to one side of one of the triangles, with right sides together. At the corner of the triangle, turn the rectangle and continue pinning along the second side of the triangle.
Do the same for the third side of the triangle, and trim the excess fabric from the end of the rectangle as shown above.
Now, sew along the edges you just pinned with a 1/2″ seam allowance. At the corners, leave the needle in the fabric but raise the foot so that you can turn the piece and still maintain a clean corner.
