DIY: Pillow With Rosette Clusters Part 2

November 10th, 2009




I finally had some time over the weekend to work on this pillow project by Anne Kyrrö Quinn. I’d been wanting to do this since I spotted it back in September. I’m thrilled that I stumbled upon Etsy’s How-To section and it’s my new go-to place for fun projects. I just love how this turned out and I highly recommend giving this pattern a go.

I’d say the project was fairly easy to execute but a bit time consuming. A majority of the time went to cutting and stitching the rossetts and probably took me about 6 hours total to finish. I’m still a fairly novice sewer so that could have slowed me up but it was the perfect task for a rainy weekend! I made my pillow a little smaller so that it would fit an insert that I’d already had and I’m thrilled with the finished look. I kept it simple with an off-white color and I think it contrasts with our chairs and other pillows well.

    I’m a novice sew’er also and those rosettes are very time consuming, but worth it. I haven’t done this on a pillow, but I did cover the sleeve on a one shoulder dress. I didn’t know etsy had a how to section – I will be sure to check it out. thx

    That turned out really lovely. This has been on my to do list since I saw it! Did you use felt? I don’t have a local place to buy quality felt and I think that’s what’s stalling me!

    Hi Anna! I ended up using wool felt. The directions call for felt or wool felt. To be honest, I’m not entirely clear on the differences but I got the wool felt hoping it might be a little sturdier. I’m sure either one would be fin though. Good luck!

    This is a beautiful pillow! I love how you coordinated it with your chair. Such good colors and contrast in texture. I’m new to your blog (I found it on Magchunk) and I’m so glad I did!

    This looks absolutely stunning!! I have been obsessed with layering tons of different textures (as you can tell by today’s post- and this pillow is so in line with that warm, cozy layered look. Love it!

    Love how this turned out. I was inspired by your post with the how-to link and picked up supplies this weekend for a little Christmas decorating using these rosettes. Good thing I got it early, as it sounds time consuming!

    That looks beautiful – this is on my to-do list. I first have to find some quality wool felt. I also love your home decor – looks stunning.
