You may remember I did some DIY African mudcloth inspired pillows for our living room. You can check those out here. Well, I am still loving them like crazy and decided to make some more using a different technique for our dining room. They turned out pretty awesome!
- Fabric – I used a heavy black linen fabric from JoAnn’s for the front and scrap painter’s drop cloth for the back.
- White DecoFabric paint marker – Found at craft stores or on Amazon here. I used a full paint marker and part of a second for these two pillows.
- Sewing machine, pins, and matching thread
- Zipper (you can omit this if doing an envelope closure and just adjust your back piece accordingly)
STEP TWO: Sew in pleats onto the front fabric piece. For this part you will follow Step Two from my last DIY mud cloth tutorial. I used the exact same method for sewing in pleats, except I ran my seams horizontal this time and spaced them 5 inches apart. After you’ve sewn your pleats into place, you can trim down an excess fabric to match the size of your back pillow piece.
