the flower pillow

 Do you remember this sweet pillow from here?

Well, here is my rendition of it...

I love how they turned out!  I did two different pillows..one for each of my couches..I have never been the matchy, matchy type.
I took the instructions on how to build a basic rose from here..and just sketched out my own pieces..as this was much larger..and I wanted a little different look to it.
I love the volume to it.  I think I used about 13 layers of petals for the rose pillow, and then I used circles glued in half and then into quarters and then all put together for this other pillow.
 
I love, love, love the look of them on my couches. This color is so fallish, so rich, so pretty!  Both pillows took 1 1/2 hours to complete..so it was really quick, and super cheap to make 2 fun pillows to add to the decor!  Don't you think those flowers (a little bit smaller) would be amazing in a fall bouquet?! mmm..I can see it now.:)

Can you help me do a little something like this for a pillow in Nat's room? I think I just heard you say yes. Oh good. And dont bring the spideys.

That looks great. I looked at the link to the tutorial and I was completely confused. I seriously am impressed once again.

Sorry, that was really Nollie who left that last message. I didn't realize Andy was signed in. I'm sure he'd love the pillow too. :)

This is so amazingly cute and exactly what I'm looking for! How much felt did you use for flowers your size?

I just found you on eighteen25, and I love your projects! This pillow looks amazing... funny, I have a craft day scheduled with my friend tomorrrow to make felt flowers :) Now I think I'll try a larger one like yours for a pillow in my living room. Thanks!
