pillow collage design love ~

hello ~

just to share with ya’ll today, a bit more of my love in designing these fun pillows using my floral shapes and collage.

for any of you who’ve been reading the blog for awhile, you’ll not be surprised to see the addition of words… these are little labels i’ve had in my stash, and these particular ones were printed on organza.  i also love to use the ones made by a company called ‘sweetwater scrapbook’ {on etsy}.

and of course, butterflies…

i like to start by placing two large flowers, in the upper round corners in the pillow, and then fill in… and this time i added a giant sunflower to the tip.  this one is big! about 6-7 inches across.  i love the look!

and a simple envelope back in the coordinating batik fabric that is on the front.

this is pillow #2:

 and i add a bit more presence and accent by free motion stitching in black thread around the words, and any other motifs i want to accentuate…

 i finished this one with binding 
instead of just turning right sides out… 
my favorite! 

and speaking of favorites… 
thanks for stopping by!
blessings on your day today!

soli deo gloria!

  1. The pillows are spectacular and adding words makes them even more so! Thanks for the tip…where you start, so helpful to me. I'll be out of collage commission for a few weeks, going to Paducah and then SD to see my Mama. I'm already having cutting flowers out withdrawals ! hehe
