Pillows are always the perfect fast and easy project， and outdoor pillows are no exception. For the second project in our Weekend Wonders with Fabric.com series， we designed a great trio of pillows in easy care outdoor fabric selections： there's a 24" x 24" jumbo pillow， an all-around 20" x 20" pillow and a comfy 12" x 20" lumbar pillow. By choosing an indoor/outdoor pillow form， polyester cording for the pipingpersonalized housewarming gifts， outdoor thread， and plastic buttons for the back closure； you'll have a set of great-looking， long-wearing pillows that can live outside for the entire season. Quality？indoor/outdoor fabric (like you'll find at Fabric.com!) is mildew， stain and water resistant， which makes it perfect for outdoor settings as well as to use indoors in sunny rooms. It's fade resistant for up to 500 hours of direct sun exposure.
If you are new to working with outdoor fabrics， take a look at the tutorial we did awhile back： How To Work With And Select Outdoor-Safe Fabric. Our friends at Fabric.com have one of the best selections of outdoor fabrics we've found anywhere. You can choose from popular designers like Tommy Bahama， Waverly Sun N Shade， Richloom and Premier Prints. We chose a selection of coordinating fabrics from Suburban Home and Swavelle/Mill Creek. Many of these designs are close to， if not exactly the same as， pillows you'll see at retail for much， much more. In fact， we spotted a pillow made from a nearly indentical print to the Swavelle/Mill Creek Glamis Spa fabric we used at the popular One Kings Lane website. The original price of the virtually identical pillow was $140! Yowsa! You can make it for a fraction of that... plus， it will be unique to you and likely better quality. That's not just a Weekend Wonder， that's Weekend Wonderful!？customized gifts for kids
We created our pillows as a set of three and so were able to mix and match the fabrics， using scraps from the main cuts for our piping cuts. Below， we've given you supplies to make each pillow independently. You'll end up with a little extra fabric， but we all love a little extra fabric!
Pillow One： 24" x 24"

Designer Christopher Duffy, aka Duffy London, has made a name for himself by producing furniture that’s as whimsical as it is functional. Some of his greatest hits include a swing table with eight hanging chairs and coffee table that appears to be floating atop balloons. More recently, he’s created the Abyss series. It started with a table, which layered wood and glass to mimic dramatic ocean depths. He’s continued his alluring Abyss by taking the design from the floor to the wall. Now as a wall relief sculpture, the shimmering void gazes back at you from eye level.
