Shabby Pillow Revamp

Her is my version of the fabric flower pillow seen all around blogland.

I repurposed an old pillow cover from Ikea that was half red and half white. I cut it so I had a rectangular shaped pillow out of the white side and sewed it up.

I then took some leftover tan muslin, cut it into strips 2" wide. I then rolled and twisted the strip around and around itself to form the flower. The two smaller flowers were made with a slightly smaller strip of fabric. Once I had the flowers formed I sewed it a little bit to hold everything in place. The flowers are each a little different, which just adds to the charm of the pillow. This was a very quick and fun project. I love how it adds just a little bit of feminine frill to my sewing corner.
