I'm finally getting around to a little finishing touch that I have wanted to do for a long time. A few months ago, our youngest daughter's room was finished... or at least it was presentable. I still had a few little things on the list to do & today I finally got around to making some contrasting fabric flowers for the pillow on her bed.
My daughter really wanted the colors in her room to be green and blue, however, we didn't find any blue accessories that we liked. I thought we could add some blue flowers to the pillow that I found at HomeGoods awhile back.
So, off to Hobby Lobby I went & found 3 cute fabrics and cut one strip out of each - the length of the fabric. I wanted the blue flower to be larger, so I cut the blue fabric 2 1/2 inches wide and the other 2 strips a little over 2" wide.
Then I folded the fabric in half and pressed it.
To begin the flower, take the end which will be the center of the flower and fold it down like this:
Then just wrap it around like this...
Turn it upside down and stitch each together until you come to the end.
Here's what the flowers look like when finished:
And, here's what the pillow looks like now:
I purchased enough of the contrasting fabric to make a few more pillows ... I just have to find some cute trim for the edges!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
