DIY: Flower Pillow

I found a tutorial for Felt Flower Pillows over at Craftzine and I had to give it a try, I did not use felt though. After an awesome trip to the thrift store yesterday I came back with arms full of fabric so I figured I would just give it a try with my new finds.

Above are the before and after. The pillows came with my couches that I bought from a thrift store when I first moved, I hated them. So, I covered them with these flower covers. They look WAY better, even if they don't match anything haha. Also, I barely spent anything to make them - thrifted fabric ( $5 - and I still have some left), thrifted thread ($.69 for 5 spools), and I already had the pillow forms.

Oh! And because all of this fabric is taking up space I don't have-dang studio apartment-I am looking for new tutorials or ideas of stuff to sew. Any recommendations?
