Finished Fleur...

So I have finished my fleur pillow & I must say, I am quite smitten with it.
Fleur

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!

Fleur Back: Chenille

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.

You've done a beautiful job with lovely fabric combinations.

Now I know what to do with the chenille I have in the cupboard!

I have to say, you manage to squeeze in a lot of sewing - you move fast girl! Looks very cute. I tried to find some new chenille only last week to no avail - if you've found any new recently, let me know.

leslie said...
