DIY Floor Pillow From a Thrifted Blanket

The Merrythought

Pin it button big

This easy peasy pillow project requires only basic sewing skills (by machine or by hand) and can be translated into other things too, like a throw pillow or dog pillow. What makes it so great is the material used: a thrifted blanket!

If you can find an old blanket with tattered edges but a fabulous pattern, you're well on your way to making this floor pillow — just add stuffing, and maybe even a few pom-poms. And since blankets tend to be thicker and heavier than your everyday fabric, they're well suited to the use and abuse your floor pillows may take.
