This started out as creative play and has turned into a pillow for my great niece. Just needs hand sewing to close up the edge and I'll be finished!
I've been trying to get a handle on my mountain of scraps. After tiring of cutting them into strips and squares, I had a different idea. I ironed Transweb fusible onto them and drew out template shapes on paper side. I cut and collected quite a few for creative playtime.
I had fun designing this flower/ferris wheel---I can't decide what it is! I put decorative edge stitching on before placing the next layer of elements.
I thought mixing up the thread colors added a bit of interest too! I used lots of low volume text prints on front and back. The little lady is quite the avid reader now and I know she will enjoy learning new words looking at her pretty pillow.
