When hanging flowers in your and you don’t want to use a vase or a flower pot you can use this minimalistic looking himmelis. They can support small flowers and be hung anywhere.
This is an example of a himmeli you can use to make your window look unique. My coworker/friend (the one I made the pink pillow for) asked for help in constructing the crib bumpers for her crib and here is the result of 6 hours of work and ONE bumper. Haha.
The interior of the bumper is soft cream Minky fabric. The exterior is the pink/brown scroll design that you see. We made piping around the edge of the pillow bumper out of a striped pink and white fabric that is also on the dust ruffle of the crib. The bottom of the pillow has snaps so that the cover is removable and washable without putting the entire pillow in the washing machine.
This is a pillow I made recently for a friend/co-worker who’s expecting a little girl very soon. She’s in the process of sewing all the pieces for the crib and decorating the baby’s room, so I made the patchy pillow to adorn her rocking chair.
The colors she chose for the baby’s room are quite pale, so it was really difficult to find the right pink hue. Personally, I’ve always liked the combination of a chocolate brown and a robin’s egg blue. It’s such a nice contrast of natural colors. Luckily we have wonderful quilt shops in Arizona, so I searched everywhere before I could find these pale latte and pink colors. I didn’t follow a pattern, so it is really random. The pillow is about 15″ square. I love the texture of the fabric and the color matches with the himmeli.
