About a month ago I found some great pillows for our couch, which meant I could get rid of some old pillows. Once I did that, it look bare so I thought I'd try my hand at covering a pillow with some felt flowers. I had success with my felt flower wreath so I decided to do something similar.
I bought 4 pieces of felt (4 for $1.00) to add to my existing supply of felt and a plain pillow from Walmart for $9.00. I had looked around other stores for something plain and came up empty handed. I knew "Wally World" would have simple inexpensive pillows.
My goal was to tie in the colors of our curtain material.
I started by cutting out the felt to make different kinds of flowers. For the pom pom flowers, I followed the directions from Lines Across My Face--the rest I just free-handed.
It took me a long time to arrange the flowers to get them in a placement I liked. I ended up not using some flowers I had initially made and then I had to make some flowers to fill in spaces.
Not too shabby for a $10.00 project!
