Pottery Barn Knockoff Pilgrim Style!

I love Pottery Barn.. but I don't love the size of their price tags.. especially when I have to buy 3 of everything! 
So I made myself this cute 
Pilgrim Chair Backer Pink Hippo style at $0!
Pin It
Here is the Pottery Barn version at $16.99
Pilgrim Hat Chairbacker
Want to make one?  
I just happen to have my tutorial handy for you!
Sewing machine
Glue gun

Start by folding your black felt.  Then pin your pattern to it
and cut it out plus your straps.
Next cut out a brown strip and your buckle and add it to your hat.
Pin them to your front piece and sew.
Next cut out two equal side pieces and pin them so that you hat is together.
Next fold over the top and pin.  then pin the bottoms together.
Sew again.
Now grab your glue gun and velcro
and glue them to the back.
Then add the name
and give it to someone you are thankful for!
I know I did!
Now I have to make 2 more!
I am sharing with 

The DIY Dreamer
Create & Inspire Linky Party



  1. Cute - but you're lucky you don't have five kids, three nephews and eleven nieces. (I don't either, but I just wanted to scare you for a second - ha ha!) By the way, I'm skipping Thanksgiving (everyone in Germany is)!

  2. Super cute and even if you don't have the materials on hand (like me lol) they would still be faaar less expensive than the PB ones! I'd love it if you'd share this at my party going on now at http://www.kathewithane.com

  3. Wow. I predict this will be featured all over blog land next week. This is adorable...PB better watch out Pinkapotamus is hot on their heels.

  4. LOVE it!! Your version is just perfect and fun!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer... From Dream To Reality!

  5. Those turned out terrific! I think they are a fantastic knock off, great job! Thanks for linking at Printabelle!
