Can anyone help me imitate this cute Pier 1 throw pillow with a ribbon applique?
I saw this at Pier 1 Imports the other day, and fell in love with it. However, Pier 1 is insanely expensive. Even at the reduced price, with the money I'd be paying for this throw pillow, I could make ten of my own, as well as get a manicure and a bag of kettle corn.
So I've been wondering how I can imitate the flower pattern. I thought of weaving thread in and out of one side of the ribbon, pulling the thread to gather it, and then sewing that down. I also thought of just folding the ribbon and sewing all those waves in place. But then I worry that the loops will just stick out and not stay flat on the pillow the way they do on this one. Has anyone made something like this before?

Do you have a pic I could see - we don't have a Pier 1 where I am.
I am thinking it was this one or one like it no?
I'll need to see a picture of the pillow you are referring too...
