I've been working on a felt pillow yesterday and today, on and off. I saw some great ones in Target that I wanted to emulate:
Unfortunately, when I started to cut out the pillow, I noticed that there was not enough of the same coloured felt to copy this. You need quite a bit of length in the strips you are going to ruffle to do this kind of effect. Ah, well. Next time.
THIS time I decided to make do rather than run down to the craft shop and do some normal ruffles and sew them in a random fashion on at each end. I am very pleased with the result!
I even made the closure all fancy like (he he) with an exposed zip in the back rather than the flap I had initially planned on. It's not perfect, but it's OK. Functional!
Don't forget to enter the giveaway before you leave! Good luck.
