Rose Trim Pillow

You all may remember hearing about the WholePort Creativity Expo. Basically, they gave you free craft supplies. AWESOME. This is the one I picked:


Very girly :) A pretty light pink rose trim. And here's what I made with it:


A pillow for my pink chair I recently redid!

I had leftover fabric from covering the seat of the chair. I bought it as a remnant originally for like $2 bucks, and then add on a free pretty trim?? This pillow cost me NADA to make. Most excellent :)

I cut out my pillow pieces and laid the trim down on the front piece. I was going to pin it down and sew it...

But I really suck at sewing and thought the flowers would all get stuck on the foot of the sewing machine....so I just hot glued it on. DON'T JUDGE ME OK??

I pinned the pieces together

And at least sewed the ends of the trim on for good measure :)

I made my own stuffing for the pillow by cutting up ends of quilting batting my mom had. Stuffing is freaking expensive. Cutting up enough batting by hand was also very tiring though....sigh. The price of frugality.

I finally cut enough stuffing and sewed up the last side using a blind stitch. I'm getting better at this stitch...it kinda looked semi-normal when I was done. I was very proud of myself.

And here it is altogether! My pink desk redo and my pink chair redo is now complete with this cute little pillow :)




Thank you WholePort for the free supplies!
If you would head over to the WholePort facebook page and like my entry I would love ya! I could win $50 for MORE free craft supplies. Whoopie!!

I'll be sharing this with all the link parties in my header including Today's Creative Blog and Christina's Adventures

  1. Very cute! And no judgement, but I would have used liquid stitch instead of hot glue, but that's just me. I saw trim like this last week at the store and wondered what I could use it on. I'm really liking this idea!

  4. Cute! (An idea for future pillow projects--recycle stuffing from old flat pillows around the house.)

  14. I picked that trim too! still thinking about what I want to do..... Love your pillow! I totally get your comment about the cost of stuffing! I have taken to watching for sales of bedroom pillows, sometimes you can get two for $5 and I buy them and use the stuffing!
