DIY: Gypsy Wanderlust Throw Pillows for cheap and easy

By Posted on 0

Remember when I was wondering if you guys remembered Domino Magazine? I totally loved that page. I thought it was published just for me, just like that chic at the Rave thought the beat dropped for her. (Candace? Do you still read this blog?)

I wanted to tell you about how I made my own Gypsy Wanderlust Throw pillows this weekend cause its a lazy girl’s DIY project. Supplies needed:

18×18 pillow forms from the local fabric store.
20×20 suzani inspired napkins from World Market
Sewing Machine

The Estate of Things chooses World Market

As if the Pillow wasn’t an easy enough sewing project, this is easier. No need to finish edges – just sew the existing hems together,  no sewing of mismatched inside out flipping zippered frayed or otherwise annoying tricked out hems, just a simple sew job, and the gratification of a DIY throw. Took me about 3 minutes and $11 to make each.

My big beautiful gypsy dog feels right at home!!

And now a quick word from our sponsors!

Thanks for playing,

    isuwannee posted a nod to the Koko collection on page today on her blog.

    and I’m totally mad about the price range. I want all of them.

    I had no idea you would like Koko so much or I would’ve told you about Koko a long time ago. All is not lost, Ebay, OneKingsLane, obscure internet sales.

    What a great DIY project but Gypsy really got my attention. What a beauty and clearly she is a loved part of your family if she (and all her fur and slobber) is allowed on your bed.

    We have a Bernese Mountain dog so I know about fur and slobber but they are so worth it!

    Hi Tricia.
    My gypsy dog is a beautiful boy named Pollock, though he has many nicknames and references. And ya… I’m in love with him – so he totally gets on the bed (with permission….. OR if I’m not around. haha).

    I reserached Bernese Mountain Dogs when I was making my decisions. I LOVE their pretty faces and I’m sure you love yours!!
