applique pillow tutorial

Danielle, from My Sparkle, is the talented older sister of my good friend Vanessa, and a total inspiration to me! Everything she makes is so adorable and she gives great tips. She recently posted this applique pillow tutorial at Bloom explaining how to use cardstock and aluminum foil to get perfectly formed shapes which I think is G-E-N-I-U-S!

For the full tutorial go here!

  1. What a great idea! That would come in handy for hems, too.

  2. Thanks Stacy! I wish I could take credit for this idea, but sadly I didn't make it up. Some old lady in a fabric store told me how to do this.
