>Gray & White flower pouf pillow

>OK, I know. Another pillow? I think it’s all of this snow outside…I just want to be snuggling inside! Plus, once my sewing machine is out and set up, I want to use it before I get to my painting projects again 🙂

I had a lot of fun with this pillow…and it didn’t frustrate me nearly as much as the other pillows I’ve made recently!! Hooray!
I used fabric I had leftover from my re-upholstered chair, and I used a soft felt-ish fabric to make the “pouf” in the corner. I just love how girly and cute it is! And it was super easy to make the flower pouf…I loosely followed the directions from Brooke at All Things Thrifty (which is the blog who got me into making my own blog!!). The only thing I did differently was I cut out a circle of the white fabric to to size I wanted first, then sewed it onto the cover, and then sewed the “bunches” on top of that. And I used a lot more bunches than she did. I really am so happy with how it turned out! 🙂
Here’s some more shots:


And yes…I did another zipper! Ah-ha zippers! You do not scare me anymore!!

Just to show you what I deal with when I’m trying to take pretty pictures…

Haha I love that little boy 🙂

Yes, it’s going up on my Etsy shop! *UPDATE*- this got sold rather quickly…I’ll make more 🙂
