How to make a ruffled felt pillow

I was delighted to see this felt pillow tutorial on Etsy's blog. Orange plus felt rosettes? What's not to love? And very trendy, since fabric flowers and ruffles seem to be springing up everywhere these days. The tutorial is from Anne Kyrrö Quinn's new book, Felt Furnishings.

If you slept on a pillow like that, just think what your face would look like when you woke up! ;-D

I just posted some ruffle pillows on my blog, from etsy seller Hettle. I love them and my Mom says they would be super easy to make, so we're going to conquer that when I'm home next week. They aren't quite like this, so I will have to give this one a go as well!

love this.. and will try it but on a side of thick headband. my daughter is no longer letting me fix her hair (grrr) so this might be a neat way to make sure she still looks put-together!! :)

I love the look but I don't think I would have the time to make one. So pretty though!!

Dani said...

It's almost time to swap out my summer pillows (not quite willing to let go of summer yet) and I think this felt pillow would make a GREAT addition to my winter collection! It's hard finding time for crafts lately... maybe I could do this while I'm traveling at the end of the month. Do you think they allow needles past airport security :)

ohh thanks for sharing- love that idea!

Visiting from Deidra's blog - yours is lovely. Inspires me to do something creative with my home. Also makes me wish I had the talent to do so!

Bonnie said...

That is gorgeous! I want to steal it right off the screen and plop it on my bed. Or make it. You know, whichever.

Marisa@make*happy said...

Hmm, I don't know...that looks like a lot of work. I suppose I could handle all that hand sewing plopped on the couch in front of a good movie. :)

Britney said...

I LOVE THIS! I cannot wait to make it! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Your mum, Grandma G, is so practical! Having said that, I can visualise a couple of these on the sofa in my studio. Plus, the author went to London Met which is really near where I live! Off to buy book right now… thanks and have a good weekend! (It's Friday now in UK.)

Rebecca said...

So cute! I want to make a cute one for my daughter's room.

Jessica said...

I love the look of this...i'd love the felt pillow for a coach...but now i'm contemplating what softer fabrics this could work with for a bed...hmmm...possible weekend project here!!
