Here I go bombarding you all with new pillow creations again. Well, I hope you don't mind! Besides more Birthday Crowns and my unfinished Halloween projects, it's all I have to share this week.
Last year this time, I remember being so busy making my felted dolls and dollhouses, preparing for my first festival and holiday orders. I am still hoping to have new felted items available this year, but had the urge after finishing up orders last night to whip up a sewn wool felt dollhouse pillow, just to see how it might come together??
The roof-top is quilted, with a layer of batting, so it's nice and sturdy. I kept the details pretty simple and worked from mostly the scraps laying around, but had lots of fun imagining all the things I could add if this one actually turned out -- fabric shutters, little birdies, a cat, embroidered flowers, and more hand quilting...
Wondering all the while why I haven't made one of these sooner?
My kids gave me two thumbs up this morning and asked if we could keep this one. So, what do you think? Should I make more?
And, from my tutorial for my Quilted Stripes Pillow, I received a request to make two pillows in browns, greens, and cream.
It's kind of funny having to follow your own directions. I'm glad I wrote those down. :)
I was extra happy in the end, when they worked!
Wishing you happy sewing and a wonderful Thursday!!!
p.s. There's a new fabric giveaway (here's a peek) happening tomorrow in celebration of International Quilt Market this weekend, please do stop back!
