Technique Tuesday with Kat Glossop

Custom Fabric Embellishments
Fabric and dimension are present on almost all of my layouts recently, so I thought I'd share this little cloud pillow I've been playing with.


First up, take some white felt and cut out two identical clouds.


Cut a piece of hessian (or any other fabric!) and place it between the two felt clouds.


Using a full strand of thread, sew a running stitch around the edge of the cloud through all 3 pieces of fabric, leaving a gap of approximately 1 inch.


Use cotton balls or (as I didn't have any!) torn up tissue to stuff the cloud, then sew up the remaining gap.



Cut the hessian around the cloud leaving a 1cm border, pull strands out or rough the edges of fabric as desired.


Place the pin through one edge and sew a cross through the whole pillow.



This technique can be used for heaps of cute, handmade dimensional embellies- like petals on a flower, trees, or even just odd shapes to add to clusters - happy stitching!
