Fat flowers for the bug party games!
These were the easiest things to make- just cut out flower shapes,
applique on round green centers,
all plump and happy.
This was a really good way to use up the smaller fleece remnants from bygone costume-sewing adventures -you know, those bits that are too big to be considered scraps on which to test machine tension.
I made these 2D pillows (meaning they were a flat sandwich) because they had to be mass-produced quickly for the party. So they're fat in the middle and flat at the edges. Were I doing these for real interior decorating, I might have added a gusset to make them more uniformly 3D. And maybe piping, but only because I'd put piping anywhere.
Here's the pattern template.
- This is a PARTIAL pattern template. It is of ONE PETAL of the flower. You need to print 5 copies, cut the five petals out and stick them together with tape as shown. This will give you the full pattern.
- This full pattern has NO seam allowances, so be sure to add your own around the border.
- I did not include the standard 1" callibration square because there is no standard size this flower pillow needs to be. Size it up or down as you wish.
