Remember that envelope pillow we learned to make two weeks ago? Here is where we get to do something interesting with it.
Many of you may remember the home of New York artist Anne Becker, featured in Elle Decor. Check out the suzani on the love seat. I took the colors and shapes directly from this photo and reintepreted them with felt.
I'm currently at work on a full-sized suzani. In the meantime, I've uploaded all the templates needed to make the suzani pillow pictured above.
I'm most proud of the suzani wheel template. You can get it here. The fuchia circle and small pieces are here. The smaller pink circle is here.
Cut the pieces out of felt or other non-fraying fabric. Then center the two flowers and, using fabric glue, attach the small one to the larger one. (If you're ambitious, you can applique the pieces. However, fabric glue works pretty well with a thick fabric like felt.)
Center the combined flower on to your pillow cover and glue.
Center the white wheel. Fold one side up to apply glue and then lay it back down. Do the same with the other half.
Add one small flower to each corner and position the yellow flourishes on either side.
Allow glue to dry and check for any loose spots.
p.s. Don't forget the jewelry frame holder giveaway, which is ending soon.
