Blog Hop Treats


Welcome to the Papertrey May Blog Hop! Thanks so much for stopping by my humble little blog. Sorry I've been MIA in blog world lately. There's been so much to do in the garden and I've been devoting some time to making a quilt for my daughter's first "big girl" bed. Since I am having such a good time sewing right now I decided to sew a pillow cover and decorate it with felt for the challenge. Here is the challenge that was issued:

This month's blog hop is all about fabulous felt! We know you love this new addition to our product line-up and we would love to see what you are doing with it! From borders to focal points, paper crafts to sewing projects. Hair accessories to home decor accents. Cards to scrapbook layouts. We want to see it all!

Here is my contribution:


I hope you love it. I had a great time creating it! :) I stitched the pillow cover out of an repurposed table cloth that doesn't fit our new dining room table. The stems and leaves of the flowers were cut from fabric and fused onto the pillow top. Then I used Raspberry Fizz and Vintage Cream felt and buttons to create the flowers. The new cloud die made a wonderful addition. I tacked down the clouds with some fabric glue and then did a simple running stitch for a nice handmade look. Finally I added a butterfly out of Vintage Cream and Hawaiian Shores felt with some half pearls for a little bling. Enjoy your hop and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love reading each and every one!
