Pillow Creation

Here are some more pics and a few details of the pillow I showed you a peek of here.

It all started with the creamy white rose trim.  I’ve had it for a couple of years at least.  I had just enough to make a circle.  From there I added the grey rose trim and then pleated the crushed silk-look ribbon to form the outer circle.  I liked it but thought it needed something in the center.

Enter the stencils from Royal Design Studio that I recently won!

I wanted it to be subtle so I used a creamy putty colored paint I had.  But it was a little too subtle!

So after the first paint dried I added some grey to make the number pop just a bit.  I chose the number 15 because it’s one of my favorite numbers and if this pillow doesn’t sell and I have to keep it, the number will be one I would use in my home :)

I don’t have any pics taken yet of this pillow cover or the others I have made with their inserts in them.  A friend is supposed to pick up some more pillow inserts for me at IKEA this weekend.  I’m hoping she doesn’t forget – hey Jessica !  DON’T FORGET!!! ;)

    Your usual good work, Jill. It is very pretty. Had to chuckle when you said,”If I have to keep it.” That wouldn’t be too hard to do. But I think it will sell.

  2. So pretty, Jill! Ikea has the best pillow inserts, I’m always picking some up when I’m there! :)

    • i know Pam, I love them! I have stolen all the forms I have here already for the new pillows I’ve made and can’t wait to get the new forms to stuff some more!

  3. Jill-That is just darling- I like the gray number-the other one just kind of washed out-color wise. Do you know I have never been to Ikea and I did not know that they had pillow inserts- xo Diana

    • Thank you Diana! I like how it turned out too. All my girls are born on the 15th so the number 15 is a fun one for me! Different months and years, but all the 15th day!

  4. Love this pillow, Jill! Its elegant all the way!

  5. I just love that rose trim and the number is the perfect finishing touch!

  6. That pillow is incredibly beautiful. I love the cream roses combined with the gray roses. And, I strongly suspect, this pillow, though lovingly created with your favorite number will be going home with someone else. It’s perfect.

  7. LOVELY! I really like the layers upon layers of trim!! So Romantic & sweet!!!

    • It is a romantic look isn’t it Jennifer?! I rather like it a lot myself. Hoping someone else likes it well enough to buy it since I can’t keep everything I make!

  8. This is so beautiful. Absolutely stunning
