Pottery Barn Poinsettia Pillow Knock Off

I love this pillow.....don't you?


But....it certainly isn't Sweetwater Style to pay $30 for ONE pillow...
Especially when I have all the ingredients in my "stash" to make one for almost FREE!

The Knock off version has been on my Pinterest "Blog Party Ideas" board for a year!
Time to get busy....

This great tutorial provided by Steph over at Crafting in the Rain
was simple to follow!



I had some white felt.....and I cut the pattern pieces out....so far so good...but it just didn't seem substantial enough!



Then, I remembered that I had a Geiger boiled wool jacket that I picked up from GW for $5...

It was worn and shabby....I bought it for the fabric....


Thought I would use it for mittens or something...


The white boiled/felted wool was PERFECT for this project!





The Pottery Barn version is linen.....and I didn't have any linen.....but I do have a lot of burlap!

Since no one is going to actually USE the pillow......the rough texture of the burlap isn't a problem.



The jacket even had these little gold buttons that were perfect for the center....

Not too shabby....
Actually it is "Shabby Chic" don't ya think?

I have a trip planned to GW later today...I need to keep an eye out for some other fabrics that would work to make a couple of these for gifts.....or maybe a GiveAway!

I will keep you posted!

Have a Great Day!
