Another Accent Pillow

I made another pillow a week or so ago to go with the pillow I blogged about here. To make it, first I found a yard of fabric remnant in a nice salmon-colored linen, and then followed this tutorial from Make It and Love it. The only changes I made were using a marking pen to mark my lines rather than just using pins as a guide and gathering all of the lines a little bit before sewing anything down. I thought I had a nice red quilting cotton to use as my base fabric, but it turned out that I didn't, so I used brown felt. It worked! Go figure. I then used some of the linen fabric for the back, which I made just about the same way Ashley did in her tutorial.


I'm really happy with the way this turned out, and as you can see (a little bit) in the picture, it goes nicely with my woven ribbon throw pillow. I'll continue to post more as I make them.

**Edited to add that I'll be posting to the parties on the left. And notice how much neater my party list looks? I got the idea from Sweet Little Smoothie! Head on over and join me in begging her to post a tute! I'm sure she would do a much better job explaining it than I would!
