Bolsters Easy Peasy

Last week I asked Frank (Mr. Upholstery) if he would teach me how to make a bolster pillow and so he did :) In class I hit a snag or two, I think I was just tired so I finished the pillows at home and I'm pleased at the end result. I will one day soon show and tell you how easy they are to make. Would you believe this pattern doesn't involve a circle? Who knew?

Here is what I used to make the bolster
  1. Fabric for the body of pillow
  2. Two strips for piping
  3. Two pieces for the ends, notice the ends aren't in the shape of the circle
More details coming soon!


  1. Well they look very professional, well done!! I certainly didn't know there'd be no circles involved, can't wait to see how it's done!

  2. They look amazing! I can't wait to see the tutorial.

  3. I love Bolster pillows. Your's are lovely. Can't wait for the DIY instructions so I can try my hand at making one or two.

  4. This is a tute that I can't wait for you to share. I adore that fabric and your bolster pillows turned out wonderful.

  5. Great job Vicky, they look so professional! I can't wait to see the tutorial.

  6. Isn't it amazing how pillows can put a bang in your all of your pillows including the bolster. I now have to follow you to get your complete tutorial. (smile)

  7. No circle? I'm curious how you did this!
