Add a cozy modern touch to your home with the Striped Bobble Pillow. Fun and easy to stitch up, this pillow is the ideal weekend project.
Bobbles are one of my favorite stitches. They are super squishy and satisfying, and don’t even get me started on how incredibly fun they are to stitch! So it was only natural for me to make a pillow that had a lot of bobbles.
In total Grace fashion, I chose gray and white for my stripes. I firmly believe that the color of the project is just as important as the texture or the design. The color can totally shift the mood of the project. I think these colors together create such a modern, sophisticated look.
There are so many possibilities with this pillow. In the pattern I wrote out my stripe pattern, but feel free to create your own! You can make each row of bobbles a different color or make the whole pillow one color. Don’t be afraid to add a lot of color changes. All the ends will get tucked in at the end, so there are no ends to weave in!
