Felt Flower Petal Pillow


  I love creating pillows out of felt.  It involves more work, but I enjoy the process.  I’m always looking around for new ideas that would work well on a pillow. After searching the internet, I was inspired by this idea and decided to create my own.




  To make my pillow I used the same process as I did here.  Once the shapes were cut, I added glue to the bottom center of each petal and pinched the two ends shut.  After the petals were glued to the circle, I added rosettes cut in two different sizes and a large yarn pom-pom.  I made the pillow form out of burlap, then attached the flower to the center using more hot glue.





  I so love this pillow!  I'm really pleased how well it came together.

*A huge thank you to, Sandra from the White Library and Laurie from The Tip Junkie for featuring my pillow on their websites!
