Felt Flower Power Patchwork Pillows

While trying to use up left over pieces of felt from other projects, this idea came to mind. Four brightly colored squares embellished with poofy whimsical flowers seemed just perfect to bring color into the room for spring.



Felt Patchwork Flower Power Pillow

For this project you will need:

- four felt squares in colors of choice(these measured each 17 x 17 cm (or approximately 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches)
- white felt for the flowers as well as white felt for the backside (size depends on finished size of pillow front but approximately
  33 cm x 33 cm in size)
- yellow sewing thread
- four buttons coordinating with the colored squares used
- batting
- trick marker for tracing lines (the lines will dissapear within time or when moistened)

Craft Pattern:

Flower Power Flower for Pillow

Flower Template





Instructions: (use a 7mm or 1/4 inch seam allowance when sewing the blocks together)

1. Print out the flower template so that it measures about 15 centimeters or 6 inches at the widest point. Glue the printed flower onto a piece of coardboard such as a cereal box and use this as a template. Use a trick marker and trace 4 flowers onto white felt and cut these out. Applique now a flower onto each square using a decorative stitch. Before you completely finish sewing around the flower, stuff batting lightly inside the flower to give it dimension).
2. Sew two blocks together. Then sew the other two blocks together. Then sew each set to each other so that you have a square.
3. Sew a button on each flower.
4. Measure the finished pillow front and then cut a piece of white felt with these exact measurements. Pin the wrong sides together and sew the pillow front and the pillow back to each other. Leave an opening for turning. Now turn and stuff as desired. When finished, stitch the opening close.
