Nothing pairs with a cozy throw blanket better than a matching throw pillow (a fireplace, book and cup of tea would also be acceptable)!
This week, for the last episode of Season 8 of Sew Together Tuesday, our National Educator Teresa Coates heads to Willow Tree Fabrics in Decatur, Alabama, to share her tips for making a throw pillow with Luxe Cuddle® minky plush fabric.
The FREE throw pillow pattern can be found below, and the finished project adds the perfect touch of texture and luxury to any home. These pillows are easy to make and finish at approximately 16” by 16” (instructions included for additional sizes), but the hardest part will be deciding which color to pick!
Also, stay tuned – the schedule for Season 9 of Sew Together Tuesday will be announced in the coming weeks!
