First off, decide what size you'd like your pillow to be. Let's just say, for the purposes of an example, that I wanted to make a throw pillow that's seven inches square. Now you need to add a half inch to each side (in other words, a whole inch.) That's the size you'll end up cutting your fabric. Mine will end up being eight inches. That gives you enough room to sew around the edges. Cut two pieces of fabric in this size, then place the two right sides together. Pin one side, making sure that the two pieces are secure. Then, using a basic running stitch, sew to the other end one half inch from the edge. Backstitch a few times before ending with a knot. Continue this around two of the other sides, leaving one side open.
You can also choose the reversible designs to make your decorative pillows more exciting. There are so many stores that offer home decors. The reversible designs are those that have two fabrics in one pillow cover - one on the front and one on the back. Most of the time, the prints are mixed from the coordinating stripe and solid colors. You can also try botanical pattern for day one and a stripe on the following day.
Neck pillows are also placed on couches and can have a design matching the throw pillows. Silk thread tassels that are of the same color as the velvet can be used to enhance throw pillows and look decorative. Middle Eastern throw pillows are popular for their exquisite floral embroidery. Colors used are predominantly popular in this region. These pillows are soft and are used on either coaches or chairs. An array of throw pillows on a bed also imparts an elegant look to the bedroom.
