You've probably seen the scrappy flower pillow from Anthropologie floating around the web, right? Anyways, if you haven't, mine looks exactly like it. har har. Well, it was a lot cheaper anyways. I hear the original pillow was like $88! YoWzAS!
I made this one for my sister Janae's birthday. She's quite a vivacious girl, loves her color, and the only request I'd been able to get out of her for her present was... "a pillow?"
So this is what she got!
I got the idea here, and used the idea to run with it until I got this. (I kind of love it) I REALLY REALLY tried to be random with my scraps...didn't try to keep them in a color range or anything, like I usually do.
It's a great project for using up scraps. I did a simple back, just an envelope style...used the trick shown here by Jill for great-fitting corners.
I was planning to sew down the petals...but I forgot/got lazy/am pregnant and will use that as an excuse for just about anything.
