Khloe's Big Girl Room-Part 2

So this pillow was the inspiration for Khloe's pillows.  I wasn't about to spend $30 on a small lumbar pillow, but I loved the felt flowers on it.

I bought $5/yd floral fabric, $8/yd pink quilted fabric, 4 for $1 felt sheets in natural and pink from Hobby Lobby.  I used $3 and $1 pillow inserts from Ikea.  To begin, cut out a flower shape in the felt.

 Fold in half and cut a slit in the center of two flowers.

 Place the slits crosswise to create your flower.  Repeat 3 times.

 Layer your flower and pull the petals in to create the desired look.  Then take a needle and thread and sew up and down through the middle connecting all of the flowers.

Place on your fabric and sew with needle and thread.

To create this look, I used my glass mixing bowls to trace all the different sizes of circles.  Then I simiply attached them together and sewed them on to the pillows.  For a pillow form tutorial, click here.

For this one, I cut out petal shapes and a small circle, layered the petals and sewed all onto the pillow.

I spent $26 and got four unique toss pillows.  So glad I didn't buy a tiny 10" x 20" for $30.
