3. Attaching the circle is the trickiest part. Surprisingly it’s actually easiest if you don’t use pins, which I love! Line up the edge of your circle with the edge of the ruffle strip right sides together. Stitch down adjusting the circle as you go. Repeat on opposite end
4. With your pillow inside out stitch up the side seam leaving a gap in the middle for stuffing. Make sure the gap isn’t on the ruffle portion or you will have to use 2 different thread colors to stitch it up (yes- I accidentally did that…) Finished!
1. Cut several long strips of fabric. Mine were about 1.5″ wide with a total length of over 3 yds.
2. Fold your strip in half (wrong sides together) and stitch along the edge creating a ruffle as you go. Tricky huh? Here’s the secret: set your stitch length as long as it will go and the upper thread tension to the highest setting.
3. Now you just glue your flower to the pillow with some tacky glue working from the inside out. Each layer of ruffles should fit just below the previous layer, so you don’t see any of your stitches or raw edges. Add a little button to the middle and you’re done!
