|I made the accessory for my ruffled pillow|
|I think the gems in the middle look great and add that something extra to it:)|
|I actually had some extra pillow cases that I used for the fabric of these flowers and the band! So, it matches my sheet set perfectly!|
What you need:1 yard of your fabric of choice
Since I had a gray and purple pillow, I used gray thread
Hook and Loop self Adhesive (Velcro)
Gemstones of your choice
Step 1:First make 6 pleated flowers, you can find that tutorial from one of my favorite blogs Craftaholics Anonymous.
Step 2: To make the band, I wanted it to be 2.5" after hemming the fabric. So I cut out about 4" wide of fabric by how many inches around my pillow was going to be, mine happened to be 36". I made sure that my fabric was as straight as I could possibly get it by using my omnigrid. I pinned my excess fabric with straight pins to get it ready to sew. Make sure you leave room between your straight pins and the end of your fabric.
Step 3: Next, wrap your band around your pillow and try to center it on the pillow. Then what I did was take my flowers and center them on the band along with centering the flowers on the pillow.
Step 4: Take all of the flowers off of the band, except the very first one and last one on the band. I did this because this just shows the boundaries of where the flowers start and end. I took the band off of the pillow and sewed on the first flower and then sewed on the last flower. Then I filled/sewed the other flowers in between the 1st and last flowers. Advice: Make sure you sew the thread through the middle or through a pleat, so you can't see the thread quite as much.
Step 6: Lastly, take your hook and loop self adhesive Velcro cut off about 1/2" and firmly place it on the ends of the band.
|This was another pillow that I made to put on my bed and the flower wrap worked for it too:)|
|I think that it looks nicer on the gray ruffly pillow.|
|Side view- Isn't it lovely?|
So there you have it fellow bloggers, a fun, removable, and versatile pillow accessory:) It was really pretty easy, just took a little bit of TLC and time! I hope you can find some inspiration in this project for yourselves:) Happy Crafting!!!
