TUTORIAL: Felt Flower Pillow

Feb 28th, 2010

Supplies needed:
Sheets of felt (or you can buy it by the yard. I used less than 1/8 of a yard)
Needle and Thread
A Pillow cover. If you need to know instructions how to make a pillow cover, go HERE for instructions.

Step #1: Begin by cutting the felt into circles (mine were about 3 1/2 inches across).
Step #2: Pinch the felt at the back to create your petals.

Step 3: With the needle and thread, tack the felt so that each circle is scrunched for good.
Step 4: Start tacking the felt onto the pillow. Use your creativity. The possibilities are endless. I chose to put some in the top corner of the pillow and the bottom corner. In the top corner of my pillow I used 6 clusters to create the flower and the bottom flower had 4 clusters.

Didn’t the pillow turn out cute!?!?

Cost breakdown: 1/2 a yard of fabric= $2.50 and 1/8 a yard of felt=40 cents.
Grand total: $2.90 for the entire pillow cover!

  1. […] from Infarrantly Creative, and the white & yellow polka-dotted flowers using this tutorial from All Things Thrifty (I didn’t make them full flowers because I wanted them to fit alongside of the big flower), and […]

  2. […] Fabric Print Flower- Cut into 4 inch squares and then cut out circles from these squares. They do not have to be perfect- just eyeball it. Fold square in half and then in half again… of course, securing with hot glue. I put 3 of these folded circles together to make my flowers.  (original instructions found in the link above) […]
