Throw Pillows

Toss a little comfort and style around your home with throw pillows! Make them to suit your mood, your décor or the season.

Be inspired by these hand crafted throw pillows. Use a piece of vintage needlepoint, make your own piping for your pillows or use stencils and paints to embellish store bought pillow covers. Finish them with a flange, put a zipper in a seam or make a back flap, so you can easily remove to clean or change your decorative pillows.

Decorative throw pillows are a great way to add your personality and color to the rooms in your home.
