Free Design Templates for a Personalized Wedding Pillow Gift

MAR 28, 2017 updated Jul 29, 2021

Earlier this year, we were feeling the love when we shared our Personalized Wedding Pillows for Under $10 DIY project on the blog. We received lots of excitement for this project and a handful of requests for a pillow template. The wedding bells must be ringing because today we’re excited to share four different pillow templates, ready for your customized details!

  • 1 yard of new Lightweight Cotton Twill makes three 16″ pillows (finished size is 15″ square). Only want one pillow? Be sure to select either of the 14.5″ front/back versions below ( formatted for a Lightweight Cotton Twill fat quarter)
  • Pillow templates
  • iron
  • scissors or rotary blade
  • straight pins
  • coordinating thread
  • Fiber fill

To create a customized pillow, click and download the pillow template below that best suits your needs. Version 1 & 2 are individual pillows that could be set-up as a master layout if you need more than one customized pillow. Version 3 & 4 are set-up to print on one fat quarter of Lightweight Cotton Twill and will yield one pillow front and one pillow back.

By creating a master layout, one yard of Lightweight Cotton Twill ( 58″ x 36″) will yield three pillows

  • Hi there, Is it possible to take a photo of one of my original paintings & have it transferred on to the twill fabric so I can make a pillow? Thanks!

    • Hi Mirella,

      It sure it! After you take a high resolution photograph or scan of your painting, you can either upload it directly to Spoonflower or set up a cut-and-sew file in a design program like Photoshop as detailed in this blog post. If you want to skip the DIY, you can also order a finished tea towel with your painting directly from Spoonflower after you upload your artwork. I hope that helps, but if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask!

    This is a great idea! Our fiftieth wedding anniversary is next year. Would it be possible to have a Canadian stamp? I don’t suppose it would matter, but that would be a wonderful idea.

    • Hi Mollie,
      This would be a great anniversary present! We found these stamps on Etsy and suggest searching there for digital stamps from Canada or other countries. Good luck!

  • Is it possible to design a card, print it on the back of the pillow and the address on the front, kind of like a Happy Birthday/Merry Christmas, etc. pillow that would be reversible?

    • Hi Bon,

      We love this idea and think you should definitely give it a try! If you’ve got a physical greeting card, we suggest scanning it first at a high resolution and then uploading it to your design program of choice.

  • I just made mine (for my little brother’s upcoming wedding)! I downloaded a free typewriter style font (Veteran Typewriter) and used the free GIMP program for my lettering. I added a sweet “love” quote to the return address line and another to the “back” of the envelope/pillow just under the “flap”. I’m going to make an insert and put an invisible zipper on this case so that they can take it off and wash it if need be. So excited!!! Thanks for these wonderful templates and, as Lynn mentioned, these would be amazing for other special events too!! Great idea for a lovely personalized, handmade gift!!

    • Hi Deena,
      That is so great! We are thrilled to hear you found the template useful and we’re sure the lucky couple will love the thoughtful gift. We’d love to see photos of the finished pillows!

    What a wonderful personalized gift idea, thanks!
    Hey, what about other pillow ideas along these same lines marking milestones such as births, graduations, retirement, etc…?
