I'll admit it - I'm not ashamed - I have a small obsession with making pillows! Eventually I would like to turn my obsession into profit by opening an Etsy shop, but for now I enjoy making pillows for my home, family and friends. So when my friend celebrated her birthday last month, it came as no surprise that I'd make her a couple of pillows(in the colors of her choice).
Rather than cut out a bunch of felt I decided to purchase some polyester satin to embellish her pillows. I purchased the polyester satin from Hobby Lobby. It was cheap, and easy to work with and a very forgiving fabric.
I added the flowers to the pillows using a method I saw at Jones Design Company. Once you cut out your shapes they do not need to be perfect. As the fabric edges melt and curl, they will take on their own shape.
To protect my hands, I held the fabric over the flame using my tweezers.
Using my glue gun, I attached each flower to the pillow. I added the detail in the center of each flower with puffy paint.
So simple and easy to make! Thank-you Emily for inspiring me!
