DIY Tribal Pattern Cushion

If there is one thing particulary trending these days – it’s the African mudcloth pillow with modern, tribal patterns. I’ve unintentionally created a cushion collection where most of the patterns are very simple and geometric – dots, grids, lines… less is more right? Plus they look great combined with one-color pillows.

My newest DIY resulted in an arrow pattern, which erm… yes, kind of fits the team. I made it as a part of the bedroom redecoration process, which you might be following on snapchat. I know, it gets a bit messy at times, but that’s the real  ‘behind the scenes’. The new drawers are already in, some of the frames and prints have just arrived, I am waiting for a new rug, hunting small details and the final look should be ready next month (hopefully!)

In the meantime check out how I made the cushion (if you haven’t figured it out yet!)

You will need:

  • plain mudcloth / linen cushion case
  • fabric painting pen (i.e this one)
  • ruler pencil

Instructions are, as easy as drawing the desired pattern with a pencil before, then tracing it with a textile pen. Leave if for about an hour to be sure your pattern is dry and dress up your pillow!

It really can’t get easier than that!
