Feathers Flights // Sewing Blog: Corduroy Bow Pillow

Corduroy Bow Pillow

I decided to make another pillow for my bed. I can never have enough pillows, and you don't need to sit on your bed so there's always more room, right? I used this bow pillow tutorial. I like the depth that the dark blues add to the arrangement.
Interested in my headboard? It's easy and doesn't damage walls!
Bows are a fun embellishment and easier than ruffles or gathers, in my opinion. Except corduroy is not an easy fabric to make a bow from. It doesn't stretch or slide easily. But I'm happy with how it turned out even if I was so made at myself for choosing corduroy while I was making the bow.
The back is pieced together corduroy. I like the back just as much as I like the front. I used the blue patterned print in this wool jacket lining and the corduroy on this doily vest.
What do you think about bows? Cute or not?
