Lightly padded, slim, and tufted with soft felt and floss rather than hard buttons, these floor pillows make fast and easy extra seating for holiday gatherings. If you’re brand new to tufting, this is a great first project.
Creating undulating curves across a flat surface is a wonderful way to add dimensional interest to a cushion. Patchwork is a good choice for tufting because the intersecting lines give you a perfect grid for your stitching points.
The bolster is one of our favorite shaped pillows, we bet you will love it too – especially this classic style with closed, button-tufted ends. We added a touch of luxury with velveteen piping and covered buttons.
We call this a “jewel box pillow” because of its rows of diamonds. But a diamond is just a square turned on point. So the front is really just six simple rows stitched on the diagonal. Piping and covered buttons soften the angles.
