I had doodled a simple floral design with my Stained by Sharpie pens on a piece of canvas (cut to 14x14 pillow size) a few weeks ago fully planning to appliqué some fabric pieces to it. I didn't get a chance to do that and THEN saw a post on the Gelli Arts Blog about printing directly onto fusible interfacing and I got really excited.
ScanNCut Canvas site. Love that site!! It really opens up the cutting capabilities of the ScanNCut Machine!
Now it's time to SEW!!
I used my Brother NX450Q for this project. This machine is my go-to machine for these types of projects because I love how it works, threads, cuts threads (very important in my world), and is portable to move from desk to desk or crop to crop.
I attached the Free Motion Quilting Foot SA129 and stitched around the pieces I appliquéd and did some decorative "swirls" too in a matching thread colour.
I attached a zipper to the bottom of the pillow and straight stitched around the pillow (with right sides facing, of course).
All that's left to do is turn it right side out and fill it with a 14x14 Pillow Form. I don't sell those here as regular stock (I can get them though...). I just happened to have one in the back waiting to use! *wink*
