As soon as I saw this project I knew it was just THE THING for my friend, Janes, wonderful Fabricnation design Seaweed fabric! My pillow looks fabulous and if my laptop would just cooperate and upload photos I could show you the end result. I have been looking for an excuse to use this design and so am thrilled to have found this free pattern. Thank you!

I make pillows all the time for indoors and outdoors. They are so easy to do and I love the idea of using old bed pillows for the pillow form. I usually make my own but buy the stuffing but I am going to use the bed pillows to cut on cost. I love that you can pick your own color and size instead of buying what is out there and they can be pricy. You can also decorate it the way you want too. If you do outdoor ones make sure you do use outdoor fabric so they last a long time because of rain and sun. A great tutorial and wonderful pictures and tips.

Such a cute sewing project! What a great way to add to your outdoor decor (especially for the summer season)!

This charming outdoor pillow really is easy to sew. Needing only one half yard of outdoor fabric makes this patio type pillow economical. Upholstery fabric designed for outdoor use is a must to cover this pillow as the fabric will resist fading from the sun and harsh weather elements. Love the fabric design shown in the tutorial.
