Dressing Up a Plain Pillow, Jacket, Scarf… February 23, 2012

Hello my dear,
In between customers today, at Veranda, I made these crazy fabric flowers. I made a prototype out of some scrap material and think they’d look especially cute in some bolder, summer fabrics.

My first effort turned out larger than I’d like. I started with pieces of fabric, cut in airplane propeller shapes. I gathered the center if each “propeller”, so that it was cinched in the middle. Then I put a needle through the center of 5 “propeller blades”. Then I arranged them as I thought looked best and sewed them in place Finally, I sewed a matching button in the center. Now, I’m ready for a new and improved way to embellish future summer pillows.

I’ve still got to finish waxing the top of my pedestal table, but I’m so happy with how it’s looking! It’s 48″ round and weighs a ton, so I hope it sells quickly. Be nice and Mr. Wonderful might deliver it for you!

Have a fun-packed weekend!,
