Petal Power Pillow uses simple petal shapes and full color photos to walk you through my discovery and create your own cool three dimensional petals on this fun little modern pillow. Add a little more interest and learn a couple more embellishment techniques by ruching the center of the flower and including a rope piping border.

With any luck, you'll whip it up while the kids are at school, and they'll all fight over it when they get home. Ask me how I know.

  • 14 inch square pillow

  • 1/2 yard background, batting, and "ugly" fabric

You Will Also Need:

  • This pattern is Leaves Galore compatible. The "petite" template is wonderful to have, but is optional
