Shabby Flower Pillow Tutorial: Guest Post from Burlap and Blue

Sometimes, ideas in my head don’t always turn out as planned. And sometimes, they turn out better….

This uncertainty is very high in the trading field. You might be of the thought that all your trades have been planned well and all of them are backed with ample number of backups which would come to use when there is an emergency or unexpected situation in the market. But when it really comes to application, you might realise that the plans had not given you a good chance in the market. So it is this fact that gets highlighted here that you need to plan your trades after having the right information from the market. This would make your trades on the CryptoCFDTrader a successful one. So do this first and then take the market for your trades.

After running across Sweet Jessie’s Scalloped Garland tutorial a few months ago, I wanted to take the same technique and use it to make a shabby, fun, linen pillow. Here’s how I did it:

Supplies Needed:
fabric (I used linen)
sewing machine
zipper (if desired)

Step 1:
Create your “petals”. I’ll explain the technique briefly, you can refer to the tutorial linked above if you need additional help.
Cut out a half-circle template out of cardstock. Place on a double layer of fabric and cut. Take your two layers of fabric and stitch around the curve.

Step 2: Take sew petals and turn inside out. Press flat. Take petals and arrange your first layer on your pillow fabric.

Step 3: Stitch petals down to fabric. Repeat for second layer of petals.

Step 4: Continue creating petals and attaching them to pillow front. I did 5 layers total, and, for layers 2-4, I cut down my template and made the petals slightly smaller. I then cut down the template further for the fifth and final layer.

Step 5: Almost there! Now you are ready to create your flower’s center. I did this by taking small circles of fabric and folding them once (into a half circle) and again (folding them into a cone shape). Either hot glue or sew your petals shut. Take your petals and hot glue them into a circle onto a small piece of fabric. Once your outer circle is complete, continue layering and working into the center of the circle.

Step 6: Glue or stitch your flower’s center onto your pillow fabric. Lastly, sew your pillow together in the method of your choice!
