I absolutely love Pinterest. I love pinning, I love looking at other peoples pins, and repinning said pins. However I have this horrible knack of pinning 90 bajillion projects and tutorials, and then looking at my boards saying, "I really need to make something one of these days."
Up until today, I had 108 pins, and hadn't made one darn thing. That is until today! I have had this cluckclucksew petal pillow tutorial pinned on my "I heart pillows" board for about six months, and finally decided that today was the day that this pillow should come to life.
I have been wanting to make some winter/holiday pillows for our living area where we put our Christmas tree, and when I saw this winter white felt I knew it was just the ticket for making this petal pillow, and a great start to my soon to be holiday pillow collection. I found the light grey Riley Blake print in my stash, and added some fusible lightweight interfacing to the back for some added weight. This pillow was so incredibly quick and easy to assemble. I used my Accuquilt GO! baby and circle die to cut about 35-40 3" circles and about 20-25 2" circles, which made for super quick cutting. This pillow took about an hour and a half to put together from start to finish, almost instant gratification.
While I was at Joann's picking up felt for this pillow, I picked up some other fabrics for a few other dog eared pinterest pillows I have been dying to make, so don't be surprised if this blog is inundated with all things pillows over the next few days! I've got a fever, and the only prescription is...more pillows!
