Petal Pillow - Making the Best Pillow Corner!

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,'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.


  1. What a gorgeous pillow, Pam and you made it look so easy too. I suck at sewing. :-( SO I envy those that can.

  2. Oh Pam, this pillow is stunning! I must find out how to do one. I love it!!

  3. You really did it! It looks fantastic and I love the red on red. Was it hard to make the petal part? I'm going to have to try that. Hope your corners turned out! My husband made a rather large pillow with this technique and it turned out great!

  4. Beautiful!! I love the petals and that red is awesome!
