Hooked pillows, like rugs, are made from strands of woolen yarn hooked through a canvas backing to create a specific design or motif. Often considered less formal than needlework pillows, hooked cushions may showcase holiday or other themes, and many use humor and whimsy as well.
Before you can buy your fabric and start sewing, you need to determine what size your pillows will be. If you already have some throw pillows in your home, measure them to see how large they are and then decide if you want your homemade ones to be bigger or smaller. If you will be placing your pillows on a couch or chair, take into consideration the height of the back and how much space you want the pillows to take up.
Visit a local fabric store to purchase the supplies you'll need to make your decorative pillows. If there isn‘t one nearby, you can also find lots of fabric and supplies online. Or, you may have an existing item of clothing or other fabric in your home that you want to recycle for this project.
