Latest home DIY: Appliqué crux/cross pillow
You saw the DIY anchor tee tutorial and the anchor applique pillows, both which I made with a PDF pattern--I made the tee appliqué with spray adhesive to keep it down while I sewed, and I used Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Tape on the pillow, sent by Kollabora for my book. For these, I cut strips of fabric, strips of Fabric Fusion tape...
And did the same dense zigzag stitch to finish the raw edges of the appliqué fabric.
Pia Wallén now makes the Cross Blanket, which is very similar but made of cotton. And still so cozy and chic!
I wouldn't ever feel right making a DIY Pia Wallén blanket, since it's her unique design!, but the Scandinavian modern is definitely a cool look on its own. When I was craving some new pillows on the couch, I pulled out some heavy black cotton canvas duck and some white cotton from the bottoms of some Ikea curtains, and put this together with the fabric tape and my machine.
I love adding a fresh, bold look to the living room so quickly just by adding new accessories.
So, what do you think? Should I incorporate more Scandinavian simple looks to go with!?
