I could have saved energy and time by buying the No Sew Fabric glue but no, the frugal one in me won. I could have finished the entire 180 peso bottle in just one project. Because frugaliciousity is the name of the game, I opted to hand stitch everything.
First, I made the pillow case last Friday night. I left one side open so it would be easier for me to sew the petals into the fabric.
Saturday morning, I used scratch paper to estimate the number and size of petals that I need. There are several tutorials online onhow to make a flower felt pillow but all of them used fabric glue and my pillow is smaller than most. I was left to plan on my own.
I then cut 16 petals – 8 big for the outer later and 8 small for the 2nd and 3rd layer. Then I folded and sewed the sides. It might have been easier if I had a pair of sharp scissors.
Now the exciting part, sewing the petals into the pillow case.
For the middle part ( sorry I forgot to take pictures because it took me three tries to figure out what to do with the middle), I cut 6 circles, folded each one twice and then sewed them together. The tutorials online used a large button or a small clover shaped felt. Those could have been easier options but I didn’t like the look.
After sewing the the pillow case, here is the finish product…
Drum rolls please….
