This is a fun project that you can do in an afternoon. You can decorate a pillow you already have or buy one that will highlight your corsage. There are two versions to complement different pillow shapes. If you are using a small pillow, you can omit the outer petals to scale down the flower. A lighter weight yarn can also be used if you want a smaller, more delicate flower, which would make a lovely pin for a coat or jacket.
