Flower Pillow

I love, love, love the way this reverse applique flower pillow turned out!  {As seen on The CSI Project last week}.

After posting a bunch of my projects on Facebook a friend asked me if I could make her a bench cushion.  I said yes of course!  But on one condition.  I get to create a matching throw pillow.  So here it is…

 

 I started by sketching a flower onto the fabric with chalk {1}.  Then I sewed the black corduroy material over top of the patterned material {right side up}, following my sketch {2}.  Here’s the wrong side of my pillow looking quite a mess {3}. Finally I cut out pieces of the flower, being sure not to snip through the patterned fabric {4}.
 And just like that I have a lovely accent pillow for my friends bench seat.
 This black and white hounds tooth was fun to work with.  I have also used it on these Rocker T’s and this Purse Refashion.
 To give my pillow a bit more interest, I offset the placement of the flower and wrapped it around the side slightly.
Thanks so much for reading!
