I have been seeing these gorgeous pillows using felt to give some glorious dimension. I decided to try my hand at creating some of my own.
These were pre-bought pillows so I had to do some deconstruction first.
After I took off the outer layer of fabric I cut leaves and the branch from fall colored felt.
To create the dimension with the leaves I folded them in half and sewed along the folded edge to the fabric. I flattened them a bit with my hand.
For the red pillow I pinned all the leaves in place before I started sewing.
I alternated which direction each leave was pointing to create that "flowing in the wind" look.
You can probably guess what these pillows looked like before, but I will show you anyway.
Hope this inspires you to take your old pillows and dress them up too!
