Tired of snow, rain or otherwise gloomy winter weather? Cheer up. This happy orange pillow tutorial will bring you into a good mood again. Dazzling ruffles are fast to produce on this easy-as-pie pillow.
The tutorial ::
1. cut circles
2. fold them twice and secure each rosette with two stitches near the center circle
3.Attach each rosette with a few stitches onto the pillow top. Line the ruffled flowers up, not too close, not too dense. You’re done when you’ve covered the entire front of your felt pillow.
4. Attach the pillow back to the front, leaving an opening for filling. Consider kapok for the reasons spelled out here. Hand sew the closure with a few push pins, or if you are making this in white and want to wash it frequently, add a zipper at the pillow back.
