My second attempt was a pillow transfer with cording added to the edges of the pillow. I must say I might have mastered the transfer part and the cording wasn't too bad to sew on. You can see the finished product HERE.
So by this time I say OK, this isn't so hard, I want to try the burlap pillows. So I start to stencil a flower on a piece of burlap and decide I am going to sew it to the front of the pillow, fray the edges of this inset, sort of to frame the flower and sew up the pillow, this time with a ruffle edging (OH how brave of me). Well it all went pretty good until I had to sew the two pieces of the pillow with the ruffled trim sandwiched in between. HA it wasn't as easy as the cording of the second pillow. But oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained right?
Can hardly see the ruffle against the white bedding.
Much better background and you begin to see the fraying around the flower "frame".
Can't miss the fraying and the ruffle trim in this picture.
All three of my babies, added a jeweled bee to the Nest pillow.
