Use colorful felt and some needle and thread and create this at home!
What you need
- Hot glue
- Needle and thread
Step-1: Decide a size for the pillow. Cut 2 pieces of felt of the same size for the pillow case. For the designing you can add as many squares as you want. Cut 4 pieces of squares from different colored felts. These 4 squares should fit inside the pillow case and also have at least half an inch gap between each other. Cut 4 more square pieces, but this time these squares should be a bit smaller than the previous ones. Cut 4 heart shapes to fit inside the small squares. Mix and match different colored felt fabrics.
Step-2: You can either stitch or glue the cut out pieces on the base fabric. I used both stitching and gluing technique. I stitched the big squares at first.
Step-3: And then I glued the small squares and hearts.
Step-4: When you’re done stitching and gluing the pieces place the decorated felt base on the top of the plain piece. Use needle and thread to attach both pieces together around the sides. I simply did running stitch and kept one side open to fill the pillow. Fill the pillow with wool, scrap fabric or felt.
Step-5: When you’ll think that you’ve added enough wool Stitch the open side to secure the filling. Tie 2 tight knots and cut off extra thread.
Have a great day! ♥
