When I saw MerMag‘s mountain pillow tutorial on Design*Sponge, I knew I needed some mountains on my couch. I started looking at bunches of other variations on the theme on Pinterest, and I pinned a few of my favorites on my Home Design board. Check it out, if this idea tickles your fancy!
I’ve had this Nani Iro double gauze sitting in my stash forever. I pulled I out recently for another project and was left with just enough to make a couple of mountain pillows.
I loved the varying polka dots on this fabric. The different sizes and organic edges reminded me of big, puffy snowballs. Perfect for the mountain theme! The fabric itself is deliciously soft and touchable. I wanted a lot of different textures in these pillows, so I added a few pleats going up the fronts of them, too.
The mountain tops are a metallic ditsy print on gray fabric I found at Jo-Anns (I think this is it, although it looks a bit darker in their picture). I folded, pleated and ruched up the sides before sewing the pillow together. Again, I wanted lots of textures for these guys.
After I made the black mountains, I wanted a contrasting pop of color. This copper fabric has also been in my stash for awhile. I have no idea where it came from, actually. But I’m glad I had it because I feel it really pulls the whole mountainscape together!
I have visions of covering my whole monster couch with these pillows. Oh, I haven’t mentioned the monster couch? That will have to be for another post.
