Pear Pillow

I made this pear pillow awhile back for Craft Hope for Haiti. I had a lot of fun doing it and it is one of my favorite pillows to date. Here is how it came about...

I cut out a pear shape from paper to make a pattern. I then found a green fabric scrap that I loved to make the pear out of...


I cut the pear shape out of the fabric and pinned it to muslin fabric that was already cut in squares for the pillow. I chose a white button for the stem and cut a brown leaf out of felt...


Then I hand stitched around the pear and leaf with white thread...


Before I hit the sewing machine, I had the little man make sure all the settings were just right...


I put the pillow wrong sides together and sewed it up adding the leaf and button by hand as a final step...


This pear pillow made me smile. I want to make another one. One of these days maybe...


Speaking of pillows, the next 2 weeks I will be sharing tutorials on sewing basic throw pillows. In Erin's first Shut Up and Sew segments, she had a ton of comments asking for pillow tutorials. You asked and you shall receive, my friends! Can't wait. See you next week!

This pillow will be linked to these fabulous blog parties!

OK, I've subscribed to your blog for a while now and I don't usually comment, but the pillows (both of them!) make me smile too! But mostly I had to comment because your little guy in the jammies is too stinkin' cute! :) Thanks for all your inspiration.
