Bow Pillow Tutorial

the bow pillow tutorial / ann kelle


Hi friends!  My bow pillow tutorial is finally here.  Working on this amidst a cross-country move made me question my sanity more than once but it all came together eventually.  I am grateful Kelle had lots of patience with me!  I am also especially grateful to my friend Annee, whose blog post here, started it all. I did mine a little differently and she gave me her blessing to pitch this to Kelle. (Don't ask me how I feel about meeting a new friend who I have tons in common with, only to move a few months later!  BUT- she owns a home in CO Springs and the rumor is that she will be here in a few years!!) 

I am also grateful to my pattern testers; Sarah (who didn't email a picutre), Tina, and Rachel.  Here are their versions:

Here is Tina's version:

Here's Rachel's version:

And here's one of the three that I made for Kelle:


Check out the pillow tutorial here (where her pictures are much better!!) and please let me know if you decide to make one!

Oh these pillows are so darn cute! Can I say that?

I love all three versions, I know my daughter will go nuts on the unicorn version though. Both Tina and Rachael too did an amazing job. I am sure I will make one in future!

Thank you Laurie! Love these pillows!

Sometimes (okay, all the time) I feel super excited because you're famous AND my friend.

Also? I LOVE THAT PILLOW WITH MY WHOLE HEART.

I love the fluffiness of the bow. Makes me want to unwrap it!

Hi Laurie! I didn't expect to see my pillow on your blog but thanks for the shout out! The pillow is so darn cute and I really love the bow. I am hoping I can whip up a quick one this weekend.
