Ruffled Pillow

I feel like its time for a pillow fight with all the pillows I have made this past year.




The last one of the year is a white one








After the pillow was all done, I started to cut some felt circles, glued them onto fabric with liquid stitch.






I cut all the different sizes of circles out, laid them on top of each other and hand stitched them together.








For the middle of the pillow I decided on having a ruffled band. For that I used my ruffler attachment on the sewing machine. It is so easy, I don't know why I waited a year to try it out.








I sewed the ruffled band to the pillow








and laid the six circles on it to see how I need to space them out.




           






For four circles I decided to make flowers. I stitched the outside of each fabric circle and knotted the thread after pulling it together until a flower like circle appeared. Did that to all layers and hot glued a shiny button.




        




For the two circles in the middle of the pillow I d ecided to leave as is, and just stitched all circle outside to each other.










Last finished project of the year. Now everything has to fit in my suitcase to take home to Germany to give to family and friends.
