I found two navy blue pillows at Target last week for $2.48/ea regularly priced $9.99. They are the exact color I want to start decorating my living room and dinning room with so I bought em.
I knew they were plain so as I did with my other pillow, I added rosettes. I made the rosettes out of leftover scraps from the t-shirt I used to make my braided bracelet. While making the rosettes yesterday I got burned badly and had to stop working because the glue was stuck to my skin :(
I have gotten burned before but this time the hot glue was stuck to my skin and really hurt! I got blisters so I put on some Neosporin, took some Aleve and had to hold on to an ice pack until my hand went numb and could no longer feel the pain. Thankfully the pain is gone and today I finished one pillow because I am too scared to make rosettes for the other one.
So... here is one of the plain navy blue pillows before:
I placed the
dangerous pretty rosettes on the pillow to see how they would look
and where I would want them.
I initially wanted to make a whole bunch of rosettes to go all the way down the pillow
but because of my little incident I only made six...
I used Fabric Glue to glue the rosettes in place,
then placed a heavy book on top and waited for them to dry...
...and here is my new rosette pillow that will go in the living room as soon
as I gather the courage to pick up my glue gun again and make more rosettes for
it's naked brother pillow:
Do you have a glue gun burn story? I would love to hear it! or read it! lol :D
