These three throw pillows look very different don't they? Look again. They are the exact same pillow pattern - just with different fabric combinations, and one with a ruched flower embellishment. Clever mixing and matching isn't just for your clothes closet.

Our fabrics are from Paula Prass' wonderful Woodland Delight collection from Michael Miller Fabrics. It's such a great group of fabrics, you could come up with dozens and dozens ... and dozens of beautiful combos.

The photo in our supplies list shows all the fabric we used for all three pillowspersonalized gifts for kids, but the quantities and steps are for just one pillow. I chose the pillow with the ruched flower as our one sample for instructions.

You'll find this project so simple, you'll want to make a bunch and wrap them up for all your Valentines.

You will need approximately three yards of white linen fabric strips to ruche (gather) for a flower like the one in our sample. Cut strips 2" wide on the bias, joining lengths together as necessary to get your three yards of length. If you're new to this technique, as we mentioned above, take a look at our tutorial: How To: Ruching Strips.

Hi everyone! My name is Kim and I blog over at seven thirty three. I am super excited to be a contributor with Crafts Unleashed and hope you enjoy some of the ideas I’ve cooked up for you. With Christmas over, a lot of the outdoor decor tends to be removed, which makes me sad! But that doesn’t have to happen. Today I’m here to share with you a simple DIY winter door decor idea that uses pine cones and snowflakes for a fun and festive wintry DIY door hanging.
