Felt Flower Pillow Tutorial | My Girlish Whims

Felt Flower Pillow Tutorial

Friday, March 11, 2011 |
My tutorial for this week is this cute felt flower pillow!

Here's how to make it:


-Fabric Mat/Ruler/Cutter
-Needle & Thread
-Pillow Stuffing
-Hot Glue (optional)


Step 1: Cut out two squares of felt for you pillow.  I made mine about 20 x 20 inches.

PS. I bought two yards of felt cause it was so cheap.  IT WAS SO MUCH FELT! You only need like half a yard. I was up to my ears in felt!!!

So much felttttttttt.
Step 2: Pin together and then sew one side of the squares

Step 3: Open up your squares, and then pin down and sew on a fun trim a little above the middle of the square

Step 4: If you want, you can repeat step 3 and sew on your ribbon beneath the trim.  I'm not the best sewer though and you would be able to see my stitches across the ribbon more than you could on the trim, so I hot glued mine on. :)

Step 5: Time to make those cute little flowers! I used this guide from the DIY Dish and cut out two of the second largest flower pieces, one in the size smaller than that, and one in the second to smallest size.

Step 6: To give the flowers more volume, sew a stitch through each petal.  Pinch each heart section together and then sew through a few times. 

Step 7: Stack the parts on top of each other, and sew together adding a bead onto the middle.

Step 8: Make three flowers, and then sew them on top of the pillow front above the trim. 

Step 9: Turn the pillow sides inside out, pin together and sew together the other three sides, leaving a space open on the bottom. 

Step 10: Stuff the pillow, and then hand sew together using a blind stitch. 

And your done!

I did a tutorial on that middle pillow here.

I love how these pillows go together! I get compliments on them all the time when people visit my dorm room.  They don't realize they are hand made!

I'm linking this project up to all the link parties listed in my header!
