flower power

Oh yeah baby!  A little flower action heading into winter isn’t such a bad thing.  Brings a little smile to my face every time I walk by it in fact.

When I saw Allison’s pillow tutorial way back when, I knew I’d be making one.  And I finally found the felt color that I wanted to use for the petals, a lovely shade of gray.  Not your typical flower color, but beautiful and modern none the less. 

Not sure where this little gem will reside, but I did catch my husband laying on it the other night and scolded reminded him that those were the kind of pillows to look at, not to smash up on.  Sorry Buttercup.
Happy Friday everyone, have a wonderful crafty weekend, I know you’re all busy preparing for Thanksgiving and working diligently on your Christmas projects.  🙂

    I love your choice of fabric! The gray goes so well with the rest of the pillow. 🙂

    You know I love gray! This is so so pretty Anna!

  3. That’s funny, I was only looking at CluckCluckSew’s red one about 5 mins ago! I had never noticed it before! Love the grey…on the touch of gold/yellow. You are very patient with all those petals!

  4. These pillows are so in style right now…I have several different tutorials in my bookmarks. I also saw one in last week’s JoAnn Fabrics add.

  5. Looks beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

  6. I LOVE the gray. It’s very “you”:) I’ve had my eye on this tutorial, too. Yours turned out great!

    That’s lovely! Reminds me of this christmas tree one I saw in Crate&Barrel’s catalog: http://www.crateandbarrel.com/decorating-and-accessories/decorative-pillows/merrie-12%22-pillow/s647139
    I also thought of you today while making thanksgiving napkins and linen table runner. If you want to see it, don’t click on my blog, because I’m not a blogger and you’ll see pictures of my kids that are two years old! 🙂

  8. Very beautiful. Great job, as always, Anna!

    LOVE that grey felt….I’ve never seen grey felt! Now I have to go scour every crappy fabric store chain here until I find it! It turned out fab…have a good one! -Al

  10. you never fail me… you always make something that I end up falling in love with!

    This weekend I am working on a drawstring bag using your tutorial, it’s a gift for my nephew.

    Hooray for more grey! I looooove this! Crap, another project to add to my “have to make it!” list 😉

  12. Gorgeous! I’m so glad that we’re moving into a new house that will have a guest room so that I can finally make some “decorative” pillows. Our bed never gets made, so there’s not much of a point to have them right now!

  13. Beautiful job Anna! I love the boldness of that size a flower, and I totally agree with your color choice. It’s like a sterling rose!

  14. Laura says:

    Gorgeous. I am continually impressed!

    I know it’s just supposed to be decorative, but I’m with your Hubby. I say lay on it and make some more! =D It’s absolutely beautiful!!!

  19. That’s quite lovely!

    Love it! I am a big lover of yellow and grey. I might have to try this pattern this coming week, in between trying to finish another purse project.

  21. Jess says:

    I have this one bookmarked too, and I loove the grey! Very wintery 🙂

    Hi, I’ll be #26 to tell you that the grey was the perfect choice. This definitely makes my list of top 5 favorite pillows in crafty land. Now I’m off to redesign an entire room in my house so I can make grey accessories 🙂

  23. Rhonda says:

    That is bee-you-tee-ful!! I must make one of those – it’s been on my to-make list for a while!

  24. I think you found your calling in life….making pillows. Oh how you make pillows look oh so good. Wonderful pieces of eye candy! Love the ones you just made the girls too! Perfect.
