Shabby Roses Pillow

This just may be one of my very favorite pillow designs.
Shabby gathered roses made from soft and cozy white jersey knit.
And yes, it's as soft as it looks.


I'm crazy about texture and I love the feel of this pillow.

And I have to tell you, the additional gathered lines came kind of by accident. Don't you love those fortunate accidents?

I had sewn all the roses on but wasn't crazy about the spacing of everything when I laid it across the front of the pillow. I was scared of ruining it after all my delicate handy work, but decided to go for it and sew straight gathering stitches right down the front.

Whew! I was pleasantly surprised at the additional delicate detail it created.





We're still waiting for summer here in Seattle...this is the view from my deck. And in case you can't tell, there is rain coming down from that gray sky.

Even more reason to decorate my home with summer flowers. Maybe mother nature will take a hint!

  12. seriously?? how do you come up with all this?? the great thing about your final products, i've noticed, is that you are not hastey (sp?). you think things through, do multiple options to find what looks the best. i love that you stumble upon little "accidents", but it's because you are creative and you try new things. you are so talented.
