Confetti Crazy

After making the little wristlet with the dots appliqu├ęd on top I decided to make a pillow inspired by it.

First I took pieces of silk charmeuse scrap that I had dyed awhile ago and put a fusible adhesive backing on them.  For pillows and things I want more pliable I like to use Heat n' Bond Lite.  Then I cut circles ranging in different sizes and placed them strategically on my base fabric.

After I figured out where I wanted them I ironed the circles down to the fabric so they would stay in place.

Since this was a pillow I stabilized it with some cotton muslin so I wouldn't have to tear it off like interfacing afterward.  Then I began free motion embroidering swirls and stars on each circle.

After completing the front I made it into a fully finished pillow with a purple back that closed with a zipper.  It's for sale in my shop now, so please check it out to see other views.
