.:Feature Friday - Sisters of the Wild West:.

Go here to enter the Petite Rouge giveaway.

We are so excited to be guest blogging here at Sumo's Sweet Stuff.

Thank you so much for blog swapping with us.

HI!! We are Amy and Emily.

We are newbies to the blog world, and we are LOVING every minute of it. A few facts about us:

*we drink diet dr pepper like water

*we take turns blogging (kind of...its a long story)

*we are highly competitive from playing sports our entire lives

*we compare notes on who's posts get more attention

*we have 11 kids between us (Amy 4 girls & 2 boys) (Em 5 BOYS)

* We love to craft any chance we get...Especially when we are together!

Today we are going to show you how to make this fun & bright Chevron Bunny Pillow!

What you need

1. freezer paper

2. Exacto knife ( or a silhouette machine) We still need one! And I don't think I would share

3. Fabric - two 16.5in circles

- one 5in x 52in strip (side of pillow)

- two 1in x 100 strips (ruffles)

4. Stuffing

I drew a bunny and then scanned to my computer and filled with a chevron pattern. I just LOVE chevron.

I placed my print out on top of my freezer paper and cut out my bunny.

I ironed on the bunny onto a 16.5 in circle that I traced from a plate onto drop cloth.

I painted the bunny with lime acylic paint.

I painted a thin outlin around the bunny. Then let dry.

I serged the edges of my ruffles. Gathered. Pinned. Sew in place. Repeat with 2nd row.

I sewed my 5x52in strip along one side of pillow. Repeat with back of pillow with right sides together. Flip. Stuff. and Stitch Close.

I have had this fabric for a year. I finally had a cute easter project to use it.

Thank you for crafting with us and we look forward to our new friends visiting us

I love this! Chevrons are so IN right now. These ladies definitely need a Silhouette and some fabric interfacing! :)

Think you might like to try your hand at using a Silhouette and the new fabric interfacing?

Well you can, and for a very great price!

Silhouette Electronic Cutting Tool

Here's what can be yours for the LOW price of $229!

- Silhouette SD
- one pack of clean cut fabric interfacing
- one pack of sewable fabric interfacing
- one roll of white flocked heat transfer

Hello! That is an amazing deal! Snatch it up quick folks!

And don't worry, all of you lovely people who have a Silhouette already, you can still get a little something, too. How about 25% off the fabric interfacing? That sounds pretty nice, doesn't it?

Just use the code SUMO for both of the above deals!
