Embellish your Old Pillows and Create a New One!

Flowered PillowsEmbellish a plain store-bought pillow or an old one with funky felt flowers. Cut simple five-petal flower shapes from felt in various colors, then layer several graduated sizes to make one flower. Using a needle and thread, stitch through the centers of the flowers to tack them together. After you have created about a dozen flowers (or more for a larger pillow), stitch them to the pillow surface, bunching them tightly together to create three-dimensional blooms.

My Tip: Thick, stiff felt works best for blooms that won't wilt, but you can cut flowers from any fabric that doesn't fray, such as fleece.
