On a recent trip to Target I saw a pillow made of ribbon. The cost was $19.99, and I knew I could make it for way less, especially since I already had most of the materials on hand. Smiley

While my daughter is home from college I have been redoing her room in pink, black and white (her choice of colors, but it is turning out great). The first ribbon pillow I made is for her room.

This is the second one:

Both on her bed:


  • ribbon - assorted colors or all one depending on what you like
  • fabric for backing, and back of pillow - amount depends on size of pillow you are making
  • matching thread to sew
  • fiberfill or pillow form

1) Take ribbon and cut into even lengths for weaving.
2) Attach even number of strips of ribbon on one side, and top of a backing fabric along the left edge. This will hold the ribbon while you are weaving it.
3) Begin weaving the ribbons from the left corner, and working your way to the right and bottom. you can use straight pins to secure it on the ends if needed.
4) Once all pieces are woven to complete the form of the pillow tack or sew a small stitch on the ends to hold in place while forming your pillow.
5) Pin right side of fabric to right side of woven ribbon, and sew around edges. Leave enough area to stuff your pillow.
6) Stuff your pillow then stitch closed the opening.

That should complete your pillow. Hope this tutorial helps.  Smiley

I think they look fabulous.

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

I love those Target pillows, too!! But yours are great.

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"
