I came up with this idea a few days ago, while I was trying to do something else for a pillow cover that ended up being a total fail. So I went with plan b. I didn't have a plan b so I just started messing around until something came to me, and GLORY! HALLELUJAH! something did.
|Start with about 10-15 strips of fabric, folded in half.|
I ripped mine because I love the shabby-ness.
|Make a small-ish loop, then a bigger one around it.|
|The strips I did were kinda short, so I would add them|
frequently, the loop by itself is an added strip.
|Sew sections of loops together to make|
them easier to handle. (or glue them)
|Keep adding and sewing...|
|When you feel like you have enough, arrange them|
in a flower shape so you really do have as many as
|Arrange it to look pretty...|
|Use one strip and roll it up tight for the center.|
|Hot glue the center onto your pillow cover fabric, and|
then the petals. Make sure to arrange them in even
spacing (if you are OCD like me.)
|What wonderful texture this makes!|
The end result, I think is fab-tabulous. Right along with my bolster pillow behind it! Here is the link on that tutorial. My husband even said he liked that, so I know it's good!
