DIY Modern Stitched Pillow

We’re back with another addition of 5 Ways to DIY!  A couple of months ago I teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you 5 Ways to DIY Wooden Trays, you might remember my DIY Triangle Patterned Tray.  This time we are each taking a solid colored pillow and giving it a little DIY makeover to add personality to match each of our styles.

I teamed up the Delineate Your Dwelling, Sarah Hearts, Pars Caeli, and A Bubbly Life.  We all started with a solid colored pillow from AllModern, that has a hidden zipper and removable cover. These pillows come in every color imaginable. If you have a specific color you are looking for, I bet you they have it.

I’m still playing with the color cobalt blue and I love it with pale pink, so I decided to do some simple cross stitching in a all over pattern.  I think it has a sweet homemade look, but still feels modern and clean.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Start by removing the pillow insert and then mark out a grid, spacing the dots 2 inches apart.  I used a piece of chalk so that it could be brushed off once the pillow was finished.

Then using a large darning needle and some yarn, begin stitching the crosses on the pillow.  I simple used the chalk dot as a guide for the center of each cross.  They are not all exactly the same size, but I wanted it to look handmade and have some variation.  Each cross is about 1 inch by 1 inch.

Now how simple was that?  Be sure to check out all 5 Ways to DIY.  Do you have a favorite?  Oh, and don’t forget to enter to win the $250 gift card to AllModern!!!!  Then you can buy enough pillows to try all 5 of the DIYs!  Enter in the rafflecopter below.

    I would love to see more projects like this that tackle boring everyday items that we probably overlook in our home. Light switches, ceiling fans, knife blocks, drying racks…
