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

Really.

He likes to see me happy

"with his fan on"

Ha!




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.

enjoy~

  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. :)

  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!

    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.

  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,
    Kathleen
