Decorating Pillows and Throws
Choose your design
Decide on the design you wish to use. You could opt for a transferrable pattern or you could draw your design, free-hand.
Choose your embellishments
Select any items you think will add to the overall effect: sequins, beads, embroidery, lace, tassels, appliques, ribbons, transfers, or paint.
Apply your chosen embellishment
Select the best way to apply your embellishments. Beads and sequins are best sewed on, while lace and ribbons will adhere with fabric glue.
Take comfort into account
Avoid embellishments in the center of your throw. Stick to the corners and outer border to preserve its comfort.
Effective display
Place your pillows on a sofa, perpendicular to the floor. Using your hand, dent the center of the top edge.

DIY Dog Bone Pillow + FREE Pattern

Regular pillows aren’t all that comfortable when you’re reading a book or watching TV. Your neck starts hurting from them sooner or later, no matter how you set them up. This dog bone neck pillow is different. Due to its special shape, you can rest on it for hours and not feel any pain in your neck! On top of that, if you happen to fall asleep, your head won't slide off the pillow because it will stay locked in place, again thanks to the shape of the pillow.
