I have been stocking this blog. Anna has become my new inspiration and role model in the craft world. I got the idea for these pillows from her! In her studio she has a bench lined with pillows with flowers on them, and I LOVED it! Mine is not quite as cute, but of course, I love it!
All the fabric on this pillow case was given to me. My awesome mother-in-law received a bag of fabric from a friend who use to sew and gave it all to me! There is nothing like making something awesome from someone elses old things or repairing something old to give it new life! These two things totally fuel me on!
Each petal is sewn kind of like the toe of a sock, so it is perfectly sewn with out a rough edge. I then attached them to the pillow only by sewing a fun leafy stitch down the center of them with the idea that they will turn up on the side and create more of a 3d look. I really like it! The only thing I think I would change next time I sew one of these petals is I think 8 petals would look better than 7. I think it would look more full and balanced.
In a house full of boys, I think the pillow adds a nice girly charm. Pillows are my favorite accent by far! What is your favorite accent for your house????
