anthroplogie pillow knock off

Last week I confessed my love for the Anthropologie Dianthus Tile Pillow and also my
sincere apology that the $168 price tag wasn't going to work for me, so... 

Here's my version...




I forgot to mention the size of the pillow was 18 x 45,
 making the price a tad more palatable.  But I knew I could do it for a fraction.

THEIRS 




MINE



Mine measures 14 x 40
I used 1/2 yard of K - Odessa (Fuschia) found here 
and 3/8 yard of Dwell Studio Bella Porte (Brindle)
my total cost was $21.00 for both pillows .
 I purchased the fabric locally at Denver Fabrics.

I remembered I had the burlap coffee bags from years ago and did a happy dance
when I saw the pink printing!

  


I think the smaller one would look nice on my black bench across the room,
but until I find something else I like the bold pink pops right there.



If you missed the pink lamp before and after check it our here or
the diy leopard tray go here.




And, to one of my favorite people in the whole world,
Happy Birthday, Mom!
I LOVE YOU!!!

I prefer the two patterns you chose! Everything turned out so great, including the pink lamp that I adore. Everything is looking so great together. Can't wait for a dining room update :) Wishing your mom a very happy birthday! Great picture!

Ok, so where I can buy one of those pretty pillows? I love it! The mix of fun patterns and then the awesome coffee sacks. Did you sew them too? I need to hire you! ;) Enjoy your pretty pops of color - you're making me crave some pink in our house. I think your accessories are great Pam. And happy birthday to your Mom! Hope you enjoyed your special super bowl dinner!

Just stunning, LOVE LOVE LOVE the bold pop of pink. You are "all that" Pam! (and a seamstress too!)
Happy B-day to your darling Mom!

That pink lamp is such a great way to bring in my favorite color!! And, your pillow - I actually like even better than the one you copied. Well done!!!

Dana Frieling@ Make Them Wonder said...

You rocked it, girlfriend! They turned out great. It's amazing how changing up just a few elements can transform an entire room. Just curious, did you inherit your talents from your beautiful Mom?

The accents do a GREAT job of pulling all your projects together! Lovely! And I must admit that now when I think I want something, I wander in my basement and wonder how Pam might create it. Yay for new wine racks in your honor! Thanks!

Diana @ Your Day Simplified said...

You are turning me into a pink fan. The pillows are absolutely amazing and only you would have burlap with pink writing!!! You did a great job and so happy to see your mom looking so good and enjoying her birthday!

I just saw these last night on your blog and then I saw that Beckie featured them this morning!!! Beautiful job! Would love to have some decent sewing skills!!!

Diane said...

I like your pillow much better. Question - did you stuff it with fiberfill or make an insert? Great job!

Lyn said...

SERIOUSLY??? I saw your pillow on Knock Off Decor and thought that the Anthro pillow was the knock off. Your's is soooo much prettier. I'm not even a pink fan but this could convert me. Beautiful job.
