Detailed look at the burlap button flowers
I learned during this project, that Dmitri is terrified of the sewing machine! He wails whenever I press the pedal!
And by the way, that is definitely not the couch that it will be on! = )
I am SO excited, because my pillow was featured on U Create ! One of the coolest craft sites, ever. Definitely check out Kari's site!
I was inspired by Vanessa at V & Co. with her "Snow ruffle Pillow." She has an excellent tutorial, and I look forward to making one! I wanted a Burlap ruffle pillow, but, burlap doesn't exactly "gather" like flannel does. Nor is it nearly as snuggley! But that hardly makes me love it less...
So, instead of gathering the fabric, I folded it. I made each "petal" about an inch. So simply "fold" it back and forth and sew it together by hand. Once I folded and sewed the entire strip, I sewed the ends together to make it a circle. Then I attached it to my pillow. I sewed a button in the middle! Voila!
Not exactly the most clear tutorial, my apologies. Let me know if you have any questions!
