A crafty idea for you....

This is a picture of one of the pillows I made for my craft business. Easy, easy.... Wool felt is ironed onto fusible web. The flower shapes are cut out and ironed onto the pillow front.(I just free handed these but any pattern can be used) Add a button or two, or three....one can never have enough buttons, right?? 2" strips of "spring time" fabric scraps are then sewn around the edges. Stack the pillow front and back with right sides together and stitch around leaving a 3" opening for stuffing. Stuff as firmly as desired. Whip stitch opening closed and you're done! Happy Crafting.

I am so happy that I found you! We miss your family so much...I'm glad you enjoy my raves and rants. Tell the girls that my girlies still ask about them. They will love seeing your blog! Hope all is well ;-)

This is so stinkin' cute - I love it! You have great style. When you do a craft show booth I want to come buy some stuff.
