The Holidays are are pretty much upon us… or at least the beginning of the Holidays anyways! My favorite thing about this time of year? The chance to gather with friends and family, both old and new! Combine my love of gathering, with my love of pillow making… and you’ve got this fabulous and shiny DIY Plaid and Gold Gather Pillow!
And oh how I wish these pictures did a better job of showing the true gold foil effect of this Plaid and Gold Gather Pillow. It is stunning in person!!
The best part about this Plaid and Gold Gather Pillow? It whips up in less than 30 minutes (depending on skill level) and is made with a pre-cut gold foil vinyl “gather” I got from one of my favorite shops on etsy!
This pillow project is almost exactly the same as this Personalized Pillow Cover I made last year, but is a totally finished and stuffed pillow, instead of just a cover.
I was quite pleased with how the gold foil of the vinyl lettering plays off of the black and white plaid. I had thought about using some of my red and black buffalo plaid, but I have a bunch of other projects in mind for that fabric, and didn’t want to over-buffalo-plaid the blog ( as if thats an actual thing lol ), and settled on this option instead.
I’m still trying to decide between keeping this beauty, adding it to my online shop (possibly as a permanent addition) or taking it to my upcoming handmade craft shows and selling it as a one of a kind…
Currently I’m leaning towards keeping it because its just so darn adorable!
What do you think? Should I keep this Plaid and Gold Gather Pillow or sell it at market/in the shop?
