I simply adore the new pattern I’ve added to my store today, the Garden Lattice Wool Appliqué Mini Pillow. The design is inspired by things I adore: cottage style gardens, blue skies, buzzing bees, and sweet little garden nooks framed in lattice to sit and day dream the day away. And maybe even sweeter than all those things, this pattern is FREE to download!
Once again this month, I am celebrating the release of the latest Button Lover’s Club: Words with Buttons box from my friends at Just Another Button Company. This month’s theme is “Bloom”. The button assortment includes beautiful hand-dyed buttons in soft peach and teal and super sweet handmade clay buttons.
I made two wool appliqué mini pillows with the club buttons. One mini pillow is featured here and another will be on the JABC blog tomorrow. You can also see both on the project reveal video that I co-hosted with Cecile from JABC.
I focused on hand-dyed buttons on this pillow. I love using the frosted buttons from the Party Pack collections as flower centers. On this pillow, I used the frosted buttons with the ripple and flower designs on them. I flipped the buttons over and used the back side of each button as the front. Since the buttons are clear you can see the pattern through the back but the design is more muted and subtle.
Of course no garden themed design would be complete without some little winged creature. This cute fat red and white bee (which coordinates with the other clay buttons in this month’s box) is such a perfect little accent to add a bit of whimsy and punch of color.
While I have your attention, I want to share a screen shot of one of the pattern pages from this pattern. My patterns (with the exception of the Button Block Alphabet) all include step-by-step instructions like those shown above.
Each download includes:
- several full color finished project images
- a complete supply list
- step-by-step instructions with photographs
The patterns make it easy to follow along and complete the project. If you are new to my patterns, I hope you will check out the free patterns I offer and give them a try. If you love them I hope you will come back and check out the ones I sell too. They really are like getting a store quality class that you can follow along and complete at your own pace.
Do you prefer cotton appliqué over wool? My patterns are all suitable for both fabrics!
