Pretty Posies Pillow

By:

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!
