This is a repost of week 3 SYTYC. Week 4 is up and I'd really appreciate if you'd hop over and vote for your favorite! Everyone that has guessed so far has gotten mine right! Can you figure mine out this week??
I just got this new bedding from Anthro when they were having their huge after Christmas sale. I am obsessed to say the least. I love it so so much. And when I saw the email about the new rosette pillow I died. It's adorable. But, I knew I could make it for much cheaper. $78 for a small accent pillow wasn't going to happen any time soon. Especially when I made my knock-off for F-R-E-E. It's true. I had the fabric, stuffing, & thread all on hand. Thank heavens for a lovely friend who loaned me her sewing machine for the day. You're a peach :)
First cut a pattern. I used a piece of yarn tied to a pencil to get an exact circle. Cut the yarn to half the size you want your actual circle to be and then draw your circle from the corner of the paper. Fold your fabric in quarters and line up your pattern. Cut & this should get you a perfect circle. I wanted my pillow to be around 18ish inches ha so my yarn was 9 in. This piece is the back of your pillow.
You're almost there! Take the piece you just made and pin the middle to the back piece, right sides together, making sure to pleat as you pin (if you haven't already). Make sure you leave a pretty good sized hole to stuff the pillow if you are not using a pillow form. Sew all the way around until you get to your hole. Flip your pillow right side out, and stuff the pillow full. You'll want to use more batting than you think to make a firm pillow. Hand stitch, or liquid stitch the hole closed and you are finished with your Anthro look-a-like!
