DIY Arrow Pillow Tutorial for Birch Fabrics

Sharing is caring!

I’m excited to show you a tutorial & pattern I created for Birch Fabrics! They’re sharing it on their blog to celebrate the release of the new Serengeti line – this is made up in the poplin substrate. I love arrow motifs and it seemed like the perfect bold silhouette to show off the (amazing) print. It can also be used as a toy, as you can see below. My neighbors definitely think we are a crazy family, with me shooting photos laying on the ground.

You can check out the second tutorial I did for Birch too – a log slice pouf!

I was paid for the tutorial but my opinions are unbiased – I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t love Birch’s quality. Their fabric is dreamy! It’s funny, one of my favorite shirts for my son is made of Birch knit but I don’t think I’ve ever blogged about it. I used Birch cotton for the toddler ring sling I made as a gift, shown in this post.

What do you think? I intended on using it in our living room, but I can see it in a modern nursery or even a dorm room. My son claimed it and uses it as a toddler body pillow – every time I think I’ve successfully snuck it off his bed, he drags it back!

Birch Fabrics Arrow Pillow at Quilt Market

I made a second pillow in another fabric from the line and it went to Fall Quilt Market! How cool is that.

Be sure to see more photos, the tutorial, and downloadable pattern on the Birch Fabrics blog.

Hi Tea, thanks for visiting! The full tutorial is on Birch's blog - I updated the post so the link is at the beginning and the end and easier to find, but it's here:

Thanks!! I am a sucker for a grey couch - we actually just moved this set into the basement playroom and replaced them with... another grey couch set haha.
