Every time I use felt for a creation, I end up with random offcuts that I cant find a use for. Today it finally came to me what I would do with them! I got so excited making this and want to re-do all the pillows on our couch and maybe bed… :)
Supplies needed are felt off cuts, a stencil of your design, needle and thread, scissors and a plain pillow case.
I decided to do an elephant because im totally in love with them! But you could try anything…what is your favourite animal? What would go well in your home? Even squares of your favourite fabric would look sweet.
I cut out a paper stencil to work with. Then using my offcuts of felt I started working them together like a puzzle so that it would cover the whole stencil.
I sewed them all together using embroidery thread and cut out the shape of the elephant once finished. Remember to make your layered felt piece bigger than the stencil so that you dont miss any of it.
Using the same coloured thread I stitched my design onto the pillow.
Yay! All done. These would also be really cute in a children’s room with a row of their favourite animals.
Hope you have fun making your own pillow design!
