Pillows on my mind


After seeing a similar zinnia pillow at a store (which I won’t name but its my favorite store ever) I had to make it. I was obsessed with it. So I bought myself some canvas and went to work. It took awhile, but now I have a new favorite thing to do with my scraps of fabric I can’t part with. And a really snazzy pillow…..going into the shop.

And a tree pillow…oh the possibilities!

And an unfinished project that is no longer staring me in the face. The Nest Pillow.


I have a feeling there will be much more applique in my future. Its addicting.

    I absolutely adore the applique pillows. Oh…I have to start sorting scraps. I really think I need one of those. :) Beautiful work!

    Oo! I love them Allison. Too bad you don’t live in Rexburg anymore, or we could do some sewing together. (Scott and I just moved back for him to teach at BYUI).

    I love these! Do you use stabilizer behind your applique? Can you share with us your technique? I have done hand applique but want to start trying machine. Your pillows are inspirational and a great way to use favorite scraps!

    These are beautiful! What a wonderful way to use up some scraps in a gorgeous way. I am definitely going to have to remember this idea.

    These are great! I do it all by hand so it would take me way longer, but I might try it! I love all of them. Love the Tina Givens birds in the last one.

    My husband cracks up when ever I make a pillow. We have so many. Applique is quite addicting, although I haven’t done it in awhile. I think it’s the perfection part that gets me.
