Under the Big Top Circus Pillow

I was lucky enough
this fall to work with 
a beautiful collection 
of fabric by Blend.

It is Calliope  by 
designer Maude Ashbury.
It is cute and whimsical.

After some deliberation, 
I decided to make a pillow 
that embraced the circus theme.

You can see some tricks to how I created the 
flaps to the circus tent and
other details over at Thermoweb.

I used Aurifil 12wt. thread 
to quilt the outside edge and to 
hand-stitch the banner string down.

I just love how it 
turned out.

The full pattern for the pillow 
can be found on my Craftsy
pattern page.

This would be the perfect
pillow for the nursery for all those spring or
summer babies that will
soon be arriving.
You will have to not sew on buttons,
if it is to be in a child's room. 

While you are downloading the 
Free pattern, go 
and check out the awesome sale that 
Craftsy is having.

I picked up this quilt kit that 
I have had my eye on for some time.

I can't wait to get this 
and finish it for my son for next Christmas.
It is just too cute.

Pin It Now!
