Clover Pillow

I made this pillow out of some scrap material I had in my baskets. It's a pretty simple design and took about an hour to complete.

Here's what you need:
Scrap material (in shades of green)
Wonder Under
Clover pattern

I started by cutting 3 squares of different patterned material large enough to fit my clover design.  I then ironed them onto Wonder Under.

Using the clover pattern, I traced a clover onto the paper side of each square and then cut out the three clovers.

Next I laid out the design on the piece of muslin.  Then I pealed off the back paper of the Wonder Under.  I cut slits into each clover and threaded the ribbon through, so it looks like they are hanging along a clothesline.

After, ironing the clovers down, I hand stitched along the edge of each to give the design a little more whimsy.

Then I just sewed the pillow together and stuffed it.

I think the long narrow design turned out really cute!!
