This pillow project is very near and dear to my heart.  The pillow is special to me because I was able to create it using a brand new stamp line EZ-De”s™ by KellyCraft and a new inkpad line,
AnnButler Designs™ ColorBox Crafter’s™. Both of these fabulous new products were designed by my close friend and fellow designer, Ann Butler.  Ann sent her new line of stamps and inkpads to me and asked if I would design a project with them.  I was having so much fun playing with these stamps that I barely finished the project.  Ann’s stamps are so versatile they’re a blast to work with.  You can create all kinds of different patterns with them.  The new inkpads are so vibrant that the colors just pop off your fabric, paper or whatever project you’re working on.   I have always wanted to learn how to quilt but I just never seemed to find the time to learn.  This pillow project is my view on quilting and the best thing about it is there’s no sewing machine involved.  Now that’s my kind of quilting!

Flour Sack or Muslin, ½ yard
Pillow insert
Buttons Galore® Buttons, daisy delight, butterfly
Embroidery thread, white
Ribbon, 1”, lavender
1. Fold flour sack or muslin in half and place a piece of cardboard in between.  Stamp pattern out first on a piece of paper.  Stamp out design on the fabric using the paper as a reference.  See photo for the colors and patterns that I used or create your own pattern. Place in dryer for 15 minutes to heat set.
2.  Place pillow insert in between the stamped fabric, pin the front in place leaving the back unattached.  Using white embroidery floss and a 3” long needle, attach buttons to stamped squares through the pillow insert but do not sew them to the back of the fabric.
3.  Wrap the back of the fabric around the back of the pillow insert and glue in place.   Pull the front tight and adhere to pillow.  Fold each side under three times and adhere to pillow insert.  Add ribbon to each corner of the pillow and tie in a bow.
