Off the beating path
This website is not about how to make a decorative throw pillow, but, it is about visualizing the creative aspect of using decorative throw pillows to personalize your space. So, as-much-as it’s not the norm for my post, I thought it would be of interest to give some facts about decorative throw pillow fabrics. I am simply offering some helpful hints, and suggestions on the many different textiles that can be used to make a decorative throw pillow. Most decorative throw pillows are made from woven fabrics, such as cotton, silk, velvet and linen. But I’ve seen decorative throw pillows made from such textiles as leather, cowhide, microfiber, hemp, faux fur and faux suede. You can virtually make a throw pillow from most any textile that is on the market, it all depends on what you are looking for, and the desired quality of the product.
What are your options?
Decorative throw pillow fabrics most often come in an array of solid colors, prints and patterns. When deciding to purchase a throw pillow online, research your options well, as sometimes you’re not able to choose the type of fabrics you’d like. Oftentimes these throw pillows are pre-made and the fabric already chosen. However, when choosing to customize a throw pillow, you would have the deciding factor of fabric type, print and patterns. If customizing a throw pillow is the direction in which you’re heading, search the Internet for “custom decorative pillows”, or find your local area home décor shops, dry cleaners or fabric stores for sewers. Perhaps, it’s a D.I.Y. throw pillow! If you’re choosing to go in this direction, remember, first start with finding your selection of textiles at a local upholstery fabric store, or a home décor fabric store. Depending on your sewing skills, choosing the type of textiles is important because the texture of upholstery fabrics, verses the texture of home décor fabrics varies, and can sometimes prove to be difficult to sew. Just saying! You might want to check with your individual stores for further details. Good luck, and have fun with it.
I Hope you’ve enjoyed the content of this post. If you are interested in purchasing, or customizing a decorative throw pillow, I have included links on my product page of online affiliate stores that offers customization, or regular orders of decorative throw pillows.
