Pillows, Pillow, Pillows

Right now I'm kind of on a pillow kick.  I wanted my front room to look more Valentinish (is that even a word).  So here are the pillows I've made over the past few days.

and here they are all together:

They were pretty easy to make, but a bit time consuming.  I started out by sewing a square pillow form and stuffing a pillow inside.  Then I cut 6-8 strips of fabric that were about 3" wide and 45" long.  The white pillow is cotton, so I surged both long edges.  The pink pillow is silk so I just surged one of the long edges and melted the edge that would show with a candle.  Then I gathered the strips.  I started by gathering one strip as tight as I could, then hot glued it as I rolled it to make a flower.  I hot glued the flower to the center of the pillow.  Using the remaining strips I just gathered them a bit and started hot gluing them onto the pillow starting at the flower and working outward in a spiral design.  I think it would look cute with a whole couch full of flower pillows in lots of different colors.


  1. Cute blog! It looks like you are figuring things out! If you want to look at other blog backgrounds here are a few other sites that have free backgrounds...
    Then you can have even more varieties to choose from.

  2. I like the white one best!


  3. I love those pillows. They turned out so cute. You are making such cute things. I bet your kids love the pillows too with the satin ribbon.
