C r a f t B r e a k : F e l t F l o w e r P i l l o w s

Adding felt flowers to plain pillows is a great way to incorporate a fun handmade touch to your decor. I made these particular pillows as a wedding gift for one of my friends. 
Here is a great tutorial for a no-sew version of this pillow.  I basically followed the same steps, however, I secured my petals with some stitches as well as glue. For the center piece, I cut a long strip of felt about an inch and a half wide and made snips down the long side. Then, I rolled the strip up and added some glue along the way to hold the whole thing together. When it is complete, add it to the petal base with some fabric glue.

I was quite happy with the way these turned out!
Give 'em a try sometime!
