Felt Flower Pillow DIY

I'm trying to sneak...

sneak some girlie stuff into our bedroom.

You know

A ruffle here..

A flower there..

I made this Felt Flower Pillow for our bed.

It's not too

Girlie....I think.

I thought you may want to sneak one too.

It's real easy to make.

My  husband bought this felt for me the other day at Wal Mart.

He had no idea!

You can find it in your craft center for around .35 cent's each.

I cut mine into strips like this.

Then I bunched it together.

That's it.

Just take your strip of felt and bunch it and pinch the end.

After you have it bunched

stitch it tight and knot it.

That easy!

You can make loose bunches

for larger flowers

or keep it tight for a smaller ones.

You can even sew two together to make one big flower if you would like.

After I had enough flowers

I sewed them onto a plain white pillow.

I made the pillow out of scraps that I had.

Each flower will be different

and that's just fine.

In fact

That's perfect!

Knowing my husband...

He probably wont even notice

that they have ruffles on our bed.

I really think he doesn't mind


He likes to see me happy

"with his fan on"


Felt is so easy to work with!

At first I didn't think I would like the texture

of the felt.

You know...

it's kinda fuzzy.

But I was so wrong.

I have a new love for felt.

It's fun to try new textures.

You just never know.

  1. So pretty, Miss Susie!! Lovin' it!

  2. It's lovely! I love the white on white. And frankly you can never go wrong with felt. I have a TON of felt.

    It must be pillow day, I just posted a pillow on my blog today too! Although I have to say I think I am loving yours and may have to make one for my bed. :)

  3. Susie-Q,,this is darlin! I might have to try this over the summer when I have some "free" time--ha!! I have a give-away at my blog! Hop over when you can.

  4. Love it Susie! You never cease to amaze me!! :)


  5. That is so pretty...I'm sure he won't mind! Especially, like you said, since his fan is runnin'! :D

  6. Wow...that turned out SO cute :) I love it!!! I didn't think of felt either...I have a thing about texture. Sandpaper drives me up the WALL! haha. Not good! I think I might have to give felt another chance after seeing this though! haha. Have an awesome day!

  7. Once again thank for sharing your incredible ideas! Love the white on white roses. I think that perhaps even I can make those felt roses (creatively challenged:) Have a great day,

  8. Brillant and gorgeous! Truly talented my friend! Love it! ~Lulu

    Those felt flowers add a sweet touch to your bed. I like how the flowers contrast with your other pillows! You are so talented!
    Hope you are having a great week!
    Hugs from your California friend,

  28. Susie

    you're such a talented lady.
    Beautiful little pillow on the bed and it is so easy to make.

    I also loved those bags you made, I wish we had Walmart for fabrics like that in New Zealand.

    This is the first time I've seen your blog and I just loved it. So I'll be following you now!

    Please come over and see my very new blog one day, and become a follower!!

    Thank you for sharing.

  29. Very cute pillow, now if I just had some of that chenille! Jackie

  30. Oh! My! How I do love it.

  31. This is lovely, and oh so inexpensive. Well Done! Your husband bought you felt at Walmart! LUCKY girl. My husband would never consider buying me anything craft related, giggle. I absolutely love the simple elegance you created with this idea. Wishing you happiness, Katherine

  32. It's adorable!!!
    I love your pillow.
    Your husband will probably never buy felt again!!!

  33. How thoughtful of him! You did a fantastic job with the pillow. It looks like little white gardenias to me.

  34. First let me say I have been so behind in my blgo reading. I just spent so much time looking over all your fabulous new posts! I am in awe of you! First the pillow is awesome! What a great talent and flair you have for putting the spray of flowers on the pillow! And that sign! OMG! I sent your link to that on to my sister who will LOVE it- You have been doing such great work!! Wow!!

  35. I know I already commented today but I had to tell you I love the header on your blog. I am trying to figure out the picture thing. I'm slow but I'm old.

  36. oooww - ruffles on pillows, love ♥

  37. You know what they say "a little ruffle never hurt anyone" never heard that one? Oh, must be just me that says that then ;O)

    Simply gorgeous.

  38. Love this idea! You're amazing! Now I HAVE to have some felt to go with the white pillows, to go with the canvas bags, to go with the fabric flowers...you get the idea...I MUST try all of your projects! They're piling up on my work table. Every time I pass it, I think, how does she do it? She's fabulous!! Have a great day my friend!!

    Blessings to you,

  39. This is darling, Susie! What a great idea! And this pillows looks wonderful there with your chenille pillows.

    Now you lie there and be all girly and a little bit frilly. . . and cool and comfortable beneath the fan. :)

  40. Very good post. Made me realize I was totally wrong about this issue. I figure that one learns something new everyday. Nice,informative website by the way. .
