Yahoo for Fridays!
I hope you had a great week. Its been an ugly wet and rainy week here. Way too much rain for me. I am seriously questioning how I will survive spring break next week if the weather is like this. Ugh! Lots of trips to the mall play area I guess. :-)
Since spring is here.. according to the calendar anyway, I decided to make a blooming cherry tree pillow for my daughters room.
First was to stitch my two fabrics together. I used a linen mix for the bottom portion of my pillow, and a pink cotton for the top portion. The back is the same pink cotton.
I used some spare Amy Butler fabric to create the tree. I penciled my trunk and branches and then cut it out.
Then, I stitched the tree on before finishing the sides of the pillow.
My blooms are made from pink felt.
Cut several circles from your fabric.
Fold one time, then once more.
Use a dab of hot glue to secure it.
Then I put about 4 of these folded felt pieces together to create a bigger bloom, gluing at the bottom to secure.
Decide where to put them on the pillow, and then secure with fabric glue and/or a stitch.
I think it turned out pretty cute.
What do you think?
