Under the Big Top Circus Pillow

Hi again, it is Amy from Sew Incredibly Crazy. I was fortunate enough to work with this cute little fabric collection from Blend.  If you were lucky enough to get to go to Quilt Market.  You might have caught a glimpse of this pillow.

The collection is Calliope by Maude Ashbury. The fun circus theme is perfect for a child’s room or one who just misses the days of the circus.

The supplies needed for the pillow are:

Calliope Fat Quarters
HeatNBond Lite
Aurifil Thread
Iron
Batting
needle
Under the Big Top Pattern


Under the Big Top Circus Pillow Instructions:

Follow the instructions within the pattern.  I did do something a little different with this pattern than others.  After ironing all the HeatnBond pieces onto the pink fabric, and cutting them out.

Take the innermost pieces that will be folded over to reveal the blue fabric.  Iron a square of blue fabric onto the bottom ends of these to create the flaps.

Sew around the sides and bottom of the square.

Iron the entire piece onto the background piece according to the pattern.  Applique sew according to the photo below.

Applique stitch around all the pieces.

A gift to someone expecting or keep for yourself.  This pillow would go great with the adorable diaper bag ensemble that we have here on the blog.
