A scrappy pillow





Today I have finally done some tidy up in my studio. Getting ready for some new projects to take place. Yesterday I received the most wonderful bundle of cheerful Christmas fabric. I can't wait to cut into those!!!

This scrappy pillow was finished a while ago. I just haven't found the time to post about it. As you all can tell I am very much into pillow making for the moment. :D Well, some of you call me the Pillow Queen. I really like that. Thanks!

I really love the scrappy feel of the patchwork on this pillow, made from a vibrant collection of 2,5 inch squares. They are quilted with diagonal lines and attached to a home decor fabric. The back has a simple envelope closing.

The fabric was bought at Whimsidots ETSY shop. If you haven't visit her shop yet I suggest you do. Whimsidots sells upcycled fabric in all kinds of measurements for very reasonable prices. These squares was from a bag of her "scrappy left overs". Who would have known they would turn into something cheerful like this? Which fabric is your favorite? I am head over heals in love with the grass green one with white tiny flowers on and the Asia inspired red flower branch on the pink and white background and... Shall I go on? :D

So this pillow is a complete recycle project and that gives me the greatest satisfaction. I am so pleased with how it turned out and I have already started on another one.

My scrappy pillow is for sale in my ETSY shop and it will soon be accompanied by more scrappy pillows.
