Add a touch of elegance and style to your home decor with decorative pillows adorned with fringe trim. At Trims By The Yard, we offer a wide range of trims to help you create beautiful, customized pillows. Follow our step-by-step guide to make your own stunning decorative pillows with fringe trim.

Materials Needed

  • Plain pillow cover (pre-made or fabric to sew your own)
  • Fringe trim (available in various colors and styles)
  • Fabric glue or sewing kit
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Pins
  • Pillow insert

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Measure and Prepare

  1. Choose Your Pillow Cover: Select a plain pillow cover that matches your decor. If you’re sewing your own cover, cut the fabric to the desired size, adding seam allowances.
  2. Select Fringe Trim: Choose a fringe trim that complements the color and style of your pillow cover. Consider the length and type of fringe for the desired effect.
  3. Measure and Cut the Trim: Measure the edges of your pillow cover to determine the amount of fringe trim needed. Cut the trim to the appropriate lengths, leaving a little extra for finishing the edges.

Step 2: Attach the Fringe Trim

  1. Lay Out Your Pillow Cover: Spread your pillow cover out on a flat surface. Ensure it is clean and wrinkle-free.
  2. Pin the Fringe Trim: Position the fringe trim along the edges of the pillow cover. Pin the trim in place to secure it, making sure the fringe hangs outward.
  3. Sew or Glue the Fringe Trim: Using a sewing machine, sew the fringe trim onto the pillow cover with a straight stitch. If you prefer not to sew, you can use fabric glue to attach the trim. Follow the glue manufacturer’s instructions for best results.
  4. Finish the Edges: For a polished look, fold the ends of the fringe trim under and secure them with a few stitches or a dab of fabric glue.

Step 3: Assemble the Pillow

  1. Insert the Pillow Insert: Once the fringe trim is securely attached, insert the pillow insert into the cover.
  2. Close the Pillow Cover: If you sewed your own cover, sew the final edge closed. If you’re using a pre-made cover, zip or button it closed.
  3. Fluff and Arrange: Fluff the pillow to ensure the insert is evenly distributed and the fringe trim hangs beautifully.

Tips for Success

  • Choose High-Quality Materials: Using high-quality fabric and fringe trim will ensure your decorative pillow looks professional and lasts longer.
  • Match Your Decor: Select fringe trim that complements your existing decor for a cohesive look.
  • Take Your Time: Carefully measure and pin your trim to achieve the best results. Rushing can lead to uneven or crooked trim.
