Flower Pillow

The cuteness continues as I finish up Allie's Room. (So close!) I'm so excited for the "big" reveal! hehe Anywho, I think I'm beginning to get a little addicted to making pillows. This is the second one in just a couple of weeks and I have more plans for more! Yikes! lol
So, I had started making this pillow a few days ago and finally finished last night.

I had come across the idea at Cluck Cluck Sew . I love love love her ideas. She's one talented woman! ;-)

Here's my take on her flower pillow.

Very simple to do. You're supposed to use felt as the flower petals but I had so much fleece left over from Allie's blanket I had made a couple of weeks ago I thought I would give it a try. And wha'do ya know? It worked! And it's nice and soft. I used probably 1/3 of a yard of the fleece, a fat quarter I had left over (the green fabric) and a half a yard of some pink fabric as the back of the pillow. The flower turned out bigger than I had wanted but it's still very cute! And I made it! (smile)

Here are some images of the "making of" the pillow...

And after many layers of petals...this is what you get!


Very cute and nice and easy! ;-) Now off to clean up. (The worst part about a project! ;-)

Happy Friday!
