Ankara Throw Pillow

So… I was just sitting down the other day looking at this fabric and wondering what I could do with it. So many thoughts crossed my mind like making a new dress, or skirt or trousers but I just wasn’t in the mood to embark on a time-consuming project! So I decided I would make a throw pillow using my glue gun and some fur I had lying around the house and Voila!

I went for a heart shape because of the valentine vibes flying all over the place and I absolutely love the outcome. This took me about 10 minutes to make and I am in love with it! I’ll probably be making loads more soon but for now, enjoy the little tutorial I’ve got for you on how to make your very own throw pillow WITHOUT SEWING ANYTHING!!!
