Hello Loves,

Hope everyone is having an amazing day. I’m back to share this fun project that I did as part of a YouTube collaboration. I used an old tuxedo blazer that was given to me by my niece to make a cute little sequin tuxedo pillow. Although I really liked the look of the blazer, I only wore it once because it really didn’t fit correctly. Luckily, I took a picture in the blazer. Check out me styling and profiling with the Hubster at a friend’s vow renewal event.

Well, the blazer brushed the red carpet and hasn’t seen the light of day since. So, instead of allowing it to collect dust in my closet, I thought it would be a perfect piece for a DIY pillow.

Follow me as I take you through the process of how I created it. But first, the supplies…

Here’s an up close of the front and back of the blazer before the hack job. The color is a blush/light pink/peach. The jacket was made by Candies and measured at about 22in. in length.

I removed the lining and set aside since I would be using a small piece of this later.

I also removed the sleeves and ended up with this vest. I mistakenly removed the lapel :(. So I had to sew that back on later.

I cut a small piece of the lining and placed it on the inside of the jack.

I then pinned the lapel directly to the lining.

If you notice here, I also pinned the entire jack closed. It was a lot easier to work with the pieces all of pieces in their places.

I removed the lapel and lining…

… and continued pinning around the collar.

Then I headed to the sewing machine to attach the two

Once sewn together, I removed all of the excess lining

I flipped the blazer inside out and pinned the above piece to it

Then it’s back to the sewing machine making sure I leave an opening at the top of the pillow underneath the collar of the lapel for stuffing.

At this time, I also close the sleeve holes and the bottom of the pillow.

I flip it right side out and I end up with this

I’m using old pillow batting to stuff.

Then I close the hole with a simple hand stitch. As you can see, I’m no expert. But this will be covered by the collar.

And here’s the finished pillow. But wait!…

That’s all guys, this project was very easy and can be done with just about any blazer, shirt or even sweater you have laying around collecting dust. So, go out and make something :)

Hope you have a blessed and productive weekend.
