Way back when my sister was living in Korea (like 6 yrs ago), I started making her some throw pillows for her couch. I wanted to applique on them and had NO CLUE what I was doing. Therefore, I got frustrated and just quit. I put them (the fabric pieces I had nearly destroyed) on the shelf and walked away. Then a few weeks ago my sister and I were talking and she asked what ever happened to the pillows. I, shamefully, told her that I still had the fabric...but that if she wanted them I would have to start over. She was here for a visit last week, with her fabulous children, and after looking at the fabric and huge mess I made with it asked me if I could "whip them up." Apparently she desperately needed some pillows. So, here is was she got:
I cut these flowers out of a home decor print and appliqued them on with a zigzag stitch in an aqua thread.
The back is a stripe from the same home decor fabric line.
