Here's directions for making a striped lumbar pillow with a bow inspired by one by Garnet Hill. I will say I am not a fan of painting fabric. I would definitely opt for purchasing striped fabric to save time. Just call me lazy or practical.
Our Holiday Knit Pillow makes it easy to wrap up your holiday decorating. With knit ribbon bows to look like presents, we love how they look piled on a chair or on the bed to spread holiday cheer (and they make great gifts too).
