Caydi Doll Pillow Series – “May Flowers”

Part 5

April showers do bring May flowers…and Caydi’s new pillow!

I used a range of charmeuse satin with a cotton flower print for this project. This pillow took me about 6 hours to make but I had so much fun making it. I had music playing in the background and was just having a sweet crafty sewing session! xP Hope ya’ll enjoy. 🙂

Swirl Petals

I completed my pillows with the common swirls found in Hmong clothing. I love how they turned out, so silky and shimmery! I used charmeuse satin fabric and appliqued my design on. They are 16×16 and about 6 inches deep. Hope you like.  🙂

After making these pillows I realize I love shiny things. *_* Oh yah, therefore I decide I’m going to make a Page and list random things I like. 😉

Common Swirls

I’ve been working on a simple pillow design for awhile now and finally decided to give it a go tonight. The pillow is based off of a common design found on Hmong clothing, swirls. On Hmong clothing, the swirls are usually cross stitched and then sewn onto fabric. For this project I decided to appliqué swirls with satin and charmeuse. Here’s a sneak peak until I can finalize this pillow better. 🙂 Hope you like the rough draft!
