6 Flower Petal Pillow

-petal pattern
-embroidery floss

This pillow measures 12"x24"

First of all, fold your fabric, so it is layered. By doing this you can cut out multiple petals at once. Next, trace the petal onto the fabric.Cut out the petals. I ended up using around 70 petals.The easiest way to make this pillow is to place the petals in this shape. Start in the middle and work your way out. Next, pin each petal. Make sure to pin them securely.Next, sew a straight line through each petal. You will go through multiple petals in one stitch run.Once that is done, sew on buttons. I used red embroidery floss so I would have a color POP.

Finally, stuff the pillow, sew the hole up and DISPLAY!

I found the idea for this pillow HERE.
