Mr. and Mrs. Pillows

Knock-off Time {Part 2}
I'm thinking that this week might just be knock-off week! Here is another knock off from Ballard Designs!
I saw these Mr and Mrs pillows and HAD to have them! Pshhhh I was NOT about to pay $59 bucks for these bad boys though! So... I made them!

First I cut my fabric down to size. Then I penciled on the letters.

After that I painted them on with brown paint.

Once the paint was dry I sewed up the pillow. Make sure to leave a hole to put in the stuffing.

 {told you I could use a sewing machine!}

And the finished product!

 Hindsight is 20/20 so I might make another set out of burlap more like the ones from Ballard. What do you think?


  1. What a great take on the his and hers theme. These would make cute wedding gifts :)

  2. I want to recreate these too! I love them!

  3. Cute pillows. It is always fun to see great knock offs. It would be fun to try burlap too but you pillows look great.

  4. really cute! i'm inspired to borrow this idea! :)

  5. I like BOTH the burlap and the pillow ticking. I'm also a fan of Ballard Designs and copying them. Great job. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog an leaving a sweet comment.

    Warmly, Michelle

  6. Very cute! I'm a new follower :)

  7. I was wanting to attempt, but nervous, almost ordered from Ballard and noticed your site. Thanks for giving me the courage.


Thank you for leaving a comment! They make my day! :-)
