As Covet Garden gets ready to pass the torch from Issue 23 to Issue 24 this Wednesday, it's fitting that this pillow project by Iza from our June feature was inspired by Xenia and Steven's home in our upcoming July feature. This dreamy button cloud pillow is so striking in design yet simple in execution that the most complicated thing is why didn't anyone think of it earlier!
Step 1: Find or make a plain pillow cover. Trace a cloud shape onto paper. Pin it onto the fabric.
Step 2: With white thread, use a basting stitch to trace the outline of the cloud template. Arrange buttons of various sizes to fill the outline.
Step 3: Sew the buttons onto the fabric individually and securely. Especially if you have wee kids.
