Here was my first pillow. Instead of diving in and using two fat quarters right away, I opted to play it safe and just use one so that made the pillow a smaller rectangular shape. I added a ruffle trim from the same fabric on the front and finished it with a blue ribbon.
At this point Larry thought what was the point of these pillows if you can't touch them?
He doesn't so much see the purpose in DECORATIVE pillows :)
After my first two pillows I kind of took off in making the rest! One of my next ones was a sqaure pillow that had a coordinating fabric strip on the font that I trimmed with lace. I embellished the center with a green felt flower shape, some Heat-n-Bonded fabric and a button in the center. It's a little different and fun and it turned out awesome. The back is the same fabric as the strip on the front.
The next pillow was Larry's favorite. He said it looked ready to be placed in a baby boy's room. I think he was starting to get the idea of decorative pillows. :)
I used an adorable blue and yellow striped floral fabric with a matching yellow solid fabric. I decided to break out some of the ric-rac that Lily Dily supplied me with.
Though this was probably the most challenging pillow to put together, it turned out amazing!
I also made a round pillow, which was my first. Simple idea, but a fair challenge in keeping it a PERFECT circle while sewing. :) Each sides were made from different fabric and had a center button for a finished look. The pillow on the right was a simple square shape. Since there was so much going on with the fabric print, I left it with just a center button as well. :) The back was a contrasting green and brown polka dot fabric.
All of the fabric was VERY different from each other, but a few of my favorites had a very vintage/chic feel. Bows are very much in style right now and fit right in with the feel of the vintage-style fabric, so I free hand cut a felt shaped bow and stitched it on the front of my next pillow. The back was a beautiful coordinating large floral print. I LOVE the girly-ness of this pillow!
There was a fabric that was SO pretty that I didn't even want to add a button to it! The floral print was large and pink and so beautiful that I just centered it as a square pillow and used a coordinating green floral print for the back. I think this may the pillow that Lily Dily kept for herself, as she loved the pink flowers as much as I did.
Here are all the pillows in their glory. I love each and every one and hope Lily Dily does too--and that she has success in selling them at her shop!
