Another project on my list, was to spruce up this black pillow in our room. The girls got some sort of white stain on it, and I couldn't get it off, so something had to be done with it--or just turn it over & not look at it, but whatever. :)
I came across this adorable pillow on Pinterest, that I wanted to do something similar, so here is what I came up with.
I used a fleece scarf for the fabric,(that I was never going to wear) but if I hadn't had that, I would have used felt.
Start by cutting several circles of your material. Mine were 3 inches.
Since I like to use hot glue versus anything hand sewn, here is what I did. :)
SO much easier than the whole' fold in half & glue, then fold in half again & glue' method. This way is a one-step way to achieve a very similar look. Works for me. :)
I started with one row by gluing each little pouf to the pillow, beginning at the top & working my way down. Then I moved on to the second row & then the last row.
The next part is kind of crucial and makes it look SO much better. Fill in ALL the gaps on every row. Basically if you can see the pillow in one area, place a little pouf there. You will understand what I am talking about once you get done with your rows. You just want it to look very full.
And that is it! I am very happy with the fun new look of it. And it fits perfectly on our bed!
Notice my other red pillow?? I think both of the red pieces work well together.
I also did one more thing to our room--added extra fabric to the bottom of my striped curtains & tie backs. I like the look of it so much more than before.
Okay, I think that is it for the room for now, I know that would make my husband happy to hear that. :)
