All Bottled Up with Tim Holtz & Sizzix

Happy Monday, crafty friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and the sun is shining on you on this bright and beautiful summer day. It is a scorcher here in the heart of North Carolina. Too hot to spend time outdoors, and way too hot for the poor flowers to bloom. But that’s okay, because I have some flowers to share today anyway.

This sweet pillow is a project that I made way back for the Tim Holtz Sizzix 2020 Chapter 1 release, and features one of the Bigz dies from that collection called Bottled Up. Of course since Bottled Up is a Bigz die, it is perfect for cutting heavier and thicker materials, like the wool felt I used here.

I love making small pillows and pillow tucks to add to my home decorating. They look great just tossed into a chair, or bundled together to fill a favorite basket or bowl arrangement. With Halloween quickly approaching, I’m thinking of all the potions and poison bottles I could make with this die. But for today, I paired it with another Sizzix Bigz die, Large Stems, to create a sweet floral pillow perfect for the spring and summer months.

I did some piecing of the flowers to get the two-toned colors, and left the flower heads free to add extra dimension. Hand-stitched French knots hold the stacked flowers in place. And I used a blanket stitch and outline stitch to add detail around the stems and bottles. A pair of buttons and Idea-ology metal Mini Plaquettes finish the design.

 Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead! Thanks so much for stopping by!
