Here’s a cozy, warm design you can easily recreate at home. We can’t wait to get comfy on the couch with a cup of tea and these seasonal-inspired accent pillows!

Let’s get DIYing!

What you’ll need:

-Brown, Cream, and Red fabric.

-Fabric marker

-Fabric scissors.

-Needle + Brown thread

-Store-bought accent pillow, size of your choice


STEP 1:  Trace the template below onto the accent fabric using a high-quality fabric marker.

 (You can re-size the leaf on your computer to best suit your pillow’s size.) We’d recommend eight to ten leaves to sew onto the corner of your pillow, but feel free to add as many-or as few- as you’d like.


STEP 2: Starting from the corner of the pillow, begin sewing tight, simple stitches in branch-like lines diagonally down the surface.


STEP 3: Sew leaves at random intervals at the end of your sewn branches. Make sure to sew differently colored leaves at the end of each branch to prevent uniformity.


STEP 4: Double stitch down the center of the leaf to ensure they won’t fall off. If you’d like, sew additional “veins” from the center “stems” of the leaf for a quirky touch.

Enjoy your super-cozy Fall themed accent pillow!
