Oly*Fun Geometric Metallic Pillow

Welcome to Designer Crafts Connection Oly*Fun sponsored Blog Hop. Oly*Fun material is unique to work with because it doesn’t fray which opens up so many possibilities. The metallic colors are especially trendy which gave me the idea of creating a graphic throw pillow. Please check out the instructions below as well as entering to win some Oly*Fun {Contest is now closed}.Oly_Fun_Pillow2

I used the Sizzix SMALL SIMPLE WEDGE DIE to cut the triangles in silver and gold Oly*Fun material then appliqued them onto a backing fabric. The Oly*Fun material felt a little too thick to piece together with a seam but since the edges do not fray, it was simple to applique. For added interest I included a vertical band of Rose Gold Oly*Fun on the front.

I’ve included detailed instructions here:  Oly_Fun_Geometric_Pillow_Instructions.

After I made this pillow I realized that this could have also been a trendy tote bag. I like the high-metallic shine of this material yet it is so easy to cut and sew.
