Pillow with Felt Clusters

 Tuesday my friend celebrated her birthday!  My gift to her was a handmade pillow similar to one we saw while browsing around at Z Gallerie.

To construct her pillow I followed instructions as seen here

The tutorial suggests hand-stitching the rosettes together, but to save time I used my glue gun!

 Isn't she lovely?!


 
I hope my friend likes her gift!

  20. Hi Brandi, this is my 1st time on your blog. I saw a comment on Lakeitha's blog and decided to check you out. Great job on the pillow!! I was in Zgallerie this weekend and saw your inspiration pillow on clearance for $9. LOL I debated whether I should have bought it. But I didn't.

    I made some pillows the other day and posted it on todays blog. But they are not nearly as detailed as yours. I also made mirrors as Xmas presents. Check them out and let me know what you think. Here is a link to one of them (i made 3 different ones)--
