The petals are a great way to use scrap fabric, which is handy if (like me) you have piles & piles of fabric scraps that you cannot bear to part with. I did deviate from Leslie's pattern a little. I used vintage chenille on the back of the pillow & petals, which make sit extra snugly for a little one & I forgot to sew a seam in the centre of the petals-opps!
Hopefully it will be well received by it's recipient when she arrives. I think I have to make another one for Lo's bed now.
Also I purchased my chenille & felt from Little Sparrow in North Caulfield. It's a fantastic little shop that sells new & vintage chenille, wool felt, doll making supplies & beautiful kid's toys, well worth a look if you are in the neighborhood.
