I’ve been reminiscing on my last trip to Denmark and going through all of the goodies I collected while abroad. Are there a lot? Yes. Too many? Maybe. I can’t help myself! The city is a natural shopping dream. On my last day I spotted an adorable circle wheel pillow case that had to come with me. But I wanted more of them and in all different colors, SO we came up with a DIY version that you can do yourself and I love how it turned out!

The pillow is made up of a series of very simple shapes that, once pieced out, piece back together easily! 10 triangles, 2 circles, a little bit of time at the sewing machine, and voilà, you’ve got yourself the sweetest little pillow that’s bound to brighten up your couch and your day!

DIY Circle Wheel Pillow

Materials:

  • 1/2 yard fabric
  • 1 1/2 yard fabric
  • 1 bag of stuffing
  • Matching thread
  • Pattern (available here)

Instructions: 

  1. Cut out 10 triangles (5 of one color 5 of the other)
  2. Cut the two back pieces
  3. Cut 1 inside lining
  4. Sew two of the different colored triangles together at 5/8”.
  5. Attach another triangle (alternate color) to the first two triangles sew.
  6. Repeat until you have 5 pieces sewn together.
  7. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have the remaining 5 pieces sewn together.
  8. Take the two pieces you have just sewn, pin them together at the straight edge and sew them at 5/8”.
  9. Press open newly sewn seam.
  10. Take facing circle and pin to the back side of the sewn together Triangles to cover seams.
  11. Take the remaining circle, pin the right sides together and sew around the edge at 5/8” leaving a 2” open on edge to insert filling.
  12. Press open the edge seam using an iron.
  13. Using your hand reach inside of the 2” hole and pull the fabric through so that the right sides are facing out.
  14. Once the right sides are facing out use stuffing to fill your pillow.

Hand stitch the opening with small tight stitches so the stuffing won’t come out.We’d love to see how you style your pillow. Tag us with #LarsMakes so we can take a look!
