Faux Grain Sack Pillow

by - February 15, 2012

Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day!  I was in chocolate heaven thanks to my hubby and boys.  In between my candy fixes, I decided to use an Ikea dish towel to make a faux grain sack pillow:

At first I was going to make it into a tote bag but I just wasn't feeling it.  Plan B was to use this great image from The Graphics Fairy and turn it into a pillow for our porch swing.
Ssshhh...don't tell anyone, but I kind of cheated a little as I just folded over one end so I only had to sew the other three.

It fits perfectly on the swing and my other grain sack pillow isn't lonely anymore.  =)

  1. Jeanine, these are BEAUTIFUL!!!! I LOVE the Ikea towels. Looks like I'm gonna be picking up a few more $.79 beauties. Thanks for the idea : )

  2. Pretty! I like the image in red. I don't think of that as cheating ~ I've done it myself where I can. One less side to sew is always nice in my book!

  3. So cute!! Are there instructions about how to transfer graphics to fabric? Can you tell I'm clueless when it comes to making things? hugs, Linda

  4. The pillows look great and a porch swing sounds like a wonderful place to be! Glad you had a lovely Valentine's Day.

  5. Great idea! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
