I thought it would be fun to make a princess out of felt. I think she turned out very sweet.
My inspiration was the Princess and the Pea. Aubrey loves this book. On the front of the pillow the main fabric is pink broadcloth with a felt princess sewn onto the right hand side. The band is purple cotton and the trim is lace.
The back of the pillow is the purple main fabric with a pink band. The trim is white eyelet. I thought using different trims and alternating the fabric would make the pillow look like a stack of cushions.
I added three green felt peas with a hand embroidered poem that reads:
While my sewing was not perfect, I worked very hard to make a pillow that will cheer up any little princess! I am putting it in the mail today to send to Ladybird Ln! So excited to be entering my very first sewing contest ever! Wish me luck!!
