Just about done with your pillow, partner! I love it SO much, I will certainly be making one for myself, too.

Your pillow was modeled after this lovely, by Brioni, aka, flossyblossy, in flickr-land:


You can find petal templates and a bit of guidance in Issue 2, "Scraps", of Fat Quarterly:


I did not mean for it to be quite so much of a doppelganger ... but that's what I get for carrying a picture of Brioni's pillow in my design journal for over a month. Is there such a thing as crushing on a pillow? ;-P

I DO hope you love it as much as I do!

    Thanks, everybody! I'm looking for three perfect buttons for the back of this little sweetie, then she'll be done. It's stuffed so puffily that the envelope back has a bad case of "droopy drawers" lol!
