Felt Flower Pillow Tutorial!!!!!
This turned out so pretty.
You will need:
pillow or stuffing
A yard of fabric (you'll have some left)
A yard of felt (off of a bolt- not kid squares of felt)
large and small cup
trace rims of cups on cardstock and cut
pin template to felt and cut out
On the right side of your fabric square trace a large bowl making a large circle in the middle. Leave 4-5 inch's or so around the edges.
Line up the edge petal along the line you traced- as you sew petals on,overlap petals about 1/4 inch. Continue sewing around the circle adding petals~
When you get near where you started, put a petal in between the previous petals-so they overlap, then you can start putting petals underneath the previous set. The closer they are,the better! To get more volume in your petals, fold the petal in the middle a little and pin down then sew, around the 3rd or 4th row.
After you've done all large petals,and your closer to the center start with the small petals.Don't forget to curve/bend your small petals for volume! When you get to the center~add a couple petals that are good and bunched and cut a small circle out of felt (1 inch) and sew it down with a few stitches in the center of the circle.
To make the pillow~place pillow front and back right sides together and pin edges and sew edges 1/2 inch
close last little part up and sew~
And your done! A beautiful pillow- I put mine outside on the front porch!
