Pretty Posies Pillow

Congratulations to deeham67, whose comment "Pretty Posies" was selected as the "Name the Project" winner.

Brighten up your space with a handmade Pretty Posies Pillow. If you're looking for free pillow patterns to sew, this is the perfect project to try. The pretty colors will help you show off your personality and taste. Best of all, this pattern is perfect for beginners.


 

Materials:

  • Fuse Creativity System Starter Set
  • Cutting Mat 24 x 36
  • Micro-Tip Comfort Grip Scissors No. 5
  • Softgrip Pinking Shears 8
  • Titanium Softgrip Comfort Loop Rotary Cutter 60 mm
  • Coastal Colors Acrylic Ruler 6 x 24
  • Fabric
  • Needle
  • Felt
  • Sewing machine

Instructions:

  1. I am using a 16 inch round pillow here. I first cut my pillow cover front to be a complete circle using the Softgrip Pinking Shears. For the back of the pillow cover, I cut two circle halves with enough fabric overlap to form the pillow closure. I then folded and sew the straightedges.


     
  2. For the flower, I chose two fabrics: a plain pink one and a patterned pink one; and alternated these to form my flower petals.


     
  3. I cut 5 inch wide strips of fabric in the lengths of 112, 88, 72, 64 and 56 inches. I folded each strip width wise into half and ironed my crease.


     
  4. I then hand stitched each strip along one edge to form ruffles as seen in this photo. To form a circle, I placed one end of the strip within the other and pinned them in place.


     
  5. To form petals, I started placing my ruffled fabric circles along the outer edge. I then machine stitched the whole pinned ruffled outer circle onto the pillow front. I repeated this, till I had all five ruffled layers in place.


     
  6. For the center of the flower, I die cut three felt circles using the Fuse creativity system. I then trimmed a little bit off of two of these circles using the Fiskars Softgrip Sewing Scissors. I added these to the center of my flower and the pillow was ready!
     
  7. I then twirled some extra green fabric, laid it over my die cut circles, and I created the center of my flower!

Directions need to estimate the yardage needed, and how you are to attach the green material to the circle. Focused too much on the brands of things used and not enough on directions on making pillow. Country Petals...

Hi! First thing that came to my mind was: Pretty as a Daisy. Good luck in deciding a name!

First prize Ribbon!

Love the pillow, My first thought was Pretty Ruffled Pillow Thanks Nancy

So pretty, just like the peonies that are blooming out in the garden. Pink Peony Pillow is my name suggestion. It looks lovely on my guest bed.

My first impression was "Flower Burst Ruffled Pillow."

when I first saw it it made me think of a "Cabbage Rose"

Fluffy Ruffle Rose Fantasy (FRRF ;) ) This is simple, awesome, and going to happen and reside on my couch in the very near future. I have a bunch of strips left over from a quilt in pinks and this is PERFECT. Thank you for such a cool pattern!

I am from the late 60's and 70's era and when I first saw this pattern all I thought was "Flower Power Pillow," we use to draw this same pattern on anything we could get our hands on, even our faces and color them in bright pinks and oranges! So I think it would be "groovy" if you called it "Flower Power Pillow"

It looks like a carnation.....So I say the name should be the carnation pillow

I like Rosetta pillow. It sound very Italian. But I think English Rose Pillow is classy too.

This looks like a "Prissy Pillow" My name for this pillow is Prissy Pillow.

"Rosa Volant" means Rose Ruffle in Italian. Love this pillow, I can see it in a variety of colors!!

I like sagehensally name. Ring Around The Rosey. A name for for a fun and easy project

" Beautiful Peony Rose " is my name for this pillow. I'm going to make it.

It looks like a peony to me.

Ruffled Rosa pillow should be the name. Cute!

Rosita

How about the Rose or Rosette Pillow as it looks like a Rose or Rosette when its completed

frilly dilly! cute.

I like the name of Ring Around the Rosey in Pink. Just reminds me of a perfect Rose in bloom!

Pretty posey

You should name it....pretty ruffled pink peony. It is a great idea...thanks for all the patterns you make available to us.

Flower Power!!!!

When I saw this pillow, the first thing that came to mind was "Peony Perfect." It's a cute pillow.

what a cute decorator pillow for a bed....i would call it a "Ruffled Rester". So cute!!!

Sorry, but the first thing that comes to my mind is an ugly pillow that is trying to pretend its a flower. No way could you lay on it comfortably.

I would call this Dahlia Bloom. It looks like the dahlia's that bloom in my garden.

"Ruffles'nbloom" is what comes to mind first. It is great and I can picture it in many different colors. grannierhonda

The Rosette Pillow. It reminds me of the Rosettes we used to win showjumping at the local show.

Wild Rose in the Garden

I think it is a "Sweet Rosette Cushion". Lovely design.
