A super simple “kinda sewing” project that can be whipped up in one fun afternoon! Once you get started making Lavender Dream Pillows, you’ll want to make a dozen to gift all holiday season long!
It makes sense to make lots of Lavender Dream Pillows at the same time. They come together pretty fast using an assembly-line process for cutting, sewing, and stuffing.
I wanted to embellish them with different colors and materials, depending on the occasion, holiday or time of year. So that meant they needed to be completely neutral.
I chose a white crafting velvet that’s got a little more stiffness to it than regular velvet fabric. It would be the perfect backdrop for any decorations, and have a luxurious plush texture.
But I can sew less complicated items, especially home decor and craft projects. I’m an absolute whiz at sewing a straight line on my Bernina machine!
That’s why when I wanted to make a pillow that could be filled with stuffing and lavender, I chose an envelope design. When it’s turned right-side out, there’s an opening in the back to allow stuffing your Lavender Dream Pillow.
The pillow case is made from a single strip of fabric that’s folded, pressed into shape, and then hemmed up on the 2 open sides. Literally, that’s it!
During the holidays, I’m a busy little camper, making a selection of food and crafty gifts for my friends and family. That means I usually try to come up with a few simple designs that can be duplicated over and over, with different materials, colors, etc.
That being said, if you’ve got an artist inside you, or you’re particularly skilled in something like “petal painting”, it becomes a whole different story!
Here’s a few ideas to help inspire your Lavender Dream Pillow embellishments:
Or, of course, choose a cute print and just tie it up with a beautiful ribbon! Do keep in mind that whatever you choose, it must be soft enough to sleep on!
I’ve created a special instructional PDF to help you make and embellish your Lavender Dream Pillows. If you don’t favor lavender, you can use another herb.
Or, if you’d like to make different combinations, I’ve included a list of relaxing herbs and essential oils to choose from. It’s totally up to you, I chose lavender because it’s my best friend’s favorite scent! (Guest what she’s getting for the holidays!)
