The one color I couldn't find anywhere, was a deep cocoa brown. So, I found this awesome fabric at Hobby Lobby that actually looks like tooled leather, but it's a synthetic fabric. So cool!
I got this baby done in just a few hours. I couldn't stop once I got started. Cutting out the circles, sewing the inverted darts and then stitching the pattern into place took the most time of course. But, it was also fun.
I have a pillow in my guest room that has similar petals all over the top. I really like it, but I had no luck finding them anywhere. I guess it makes sense since I probably bought it 5 or 6 years ago. So, I did what any good seamstress would do.....I removed one of the petals to use as a pattern and see how it was constructed to create the petal shape and went to town on my very own design.
I already had a pillow that I used for the fiberfill filling, so this baby cost me well under $10! Plus, I still have fabric leftover. I wouldn't dare however make another pillow since my husband would probably freak......he just doesn't get the whole throw pillows on the bed thing....go figure!?
