I haven't shared a crafty post in a long time.
It's time for that to change!
So, here is a pillow I recently completed. A lovely flower pillow! I chose a buttery yellow fabric, because it was bright and cheery, and because I felt like it fit in with our decorating style. But when I finished sewing it up, I found that it didn't actually coordinate with any of our living room or bedroom furniture or fabrics. Hmm. I'm awesome like that. But no matter, I love it anyway!
I made this pillow using Sweetie Pie Bakery's "petal pusher pillow" pattern. It was pretty easy to follow, but there were a few details I had to make up as I went along. The biggest change was that the pattern was made to work with a 12" round pillow. I could only find 10" and 14"... so I went with 14" and I think there's a little too much blossom-less space around the edge. I guess I could add another row of petals... but probably not.
It was fun to make and now I can't wait to start some other projects to brighten up our house!
Have you made any projects to decorate your home with lately?
