I absolutely knew I had to make a petal pillow as soon as I saw the guest tutorial by Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew on V and Co. blog. I chose a very thin wale printed pink/red corduroy and bright fire engine red felt (off the bolt) to make the petal pillow above. Instead of buying an already made pillow form to insert, I sewed one from muslin and stuffed it with fiberfill. The petal pillow cover is sewn like a sham in back.
Regarding the perfect pillow corner, I wish I could take credit for this because it's such an in genius idea, but......here's the fabulous tutorial by La Maison Reid that shows you exactly how to make a pillow corner for this pretty petal pillow. Give these gals' blogs a look see and make a petal pillow or two. This turned out to be one of the most fun sewing projects I've made in a while.P.S. If you like the woven leather belt seating on my chair, here's how to weave a leather chair seat. Linking to Motivate Me Monday at Keeping It Simple.
