Adding tassels to a simple throw
pillow pattern is one of the
simplest ways to easily spruce up
your throw pillow into something
decorative, unique, and fancy. This
method is incredibly easy.
1. Decide on a shape and size for your throw pillow. Purchase
or create a pattern for your throw pillow.

2. Cut out the pattern or template once enlarged or adjusted to
the perfect size and shape. Remember to leave 1/2 inch to 1
inch for a seam allowance.
3. Pin the template or pattern for the throw pillows to the
material. Cut out two pieces of fabric that are exactly the same
size and shape.
4. Lay one piece of fabric down right side up, place tassels in
the corner. For a traditional square pillow, 1 tassel in each
corner works well. Also, 1 tassel in just the top two corners or
more than one tassel sewn in the top two corners works well
too. Lay the other side of the pillow fabric right side down.
5.Pin the right sides of the fabric together - make sure to pin
the tassels in place securely. Plan the 1 or 2 inch long area
that you will leave open for turning and stuffing your throw
pillow. A good choice would be the bottom side of the pillow if it
5. Sew around the pinned and marked sections to create your
sew pillow. Turn the pillow right side out and stuff with batting,
stuffing, or your desired material. Some people also stuff with
feathers or shredded old t-shirts.
6. Sew up the small opening in your throw pillow used for
turning and stuffing.
*Create all designs, patchwork, bedding, or decorative
stitching before pinning and sewing the right sides together.
