I've seen these flower pillows around lately, they are kind of pricey, and they look easy to make. So I decided to try one for myself, and guess what, they are soooo easy to make, it's really ridiculous.
I started with a square pillow form that I've had laying around for awhile. I sewed a quick slipcover out of cream felt to fit the pillow.
Then I drew a flower petal in three different sizes on a piece of paper and cut it out. Then I used the flower petal pattern and started cutting out the shapes on the felt. I felt like I was cutting forever. I didn't count how many I cut, but if I had to guess, I would say 40 of each size.
After I got all the petals cut, I took my glue gun and put a small strip of glue down the bottom center of each petal and pinched the sides together, this gave the petal a little dimension.
After I got all the petals glued, I started to assemble my flower. I started with the biggest petals first and glued the bottom part of the petal right on the pillow making a circle.
I just kept working my way around the circle in a spiral shape gluing the petals on, when I was done with one size I would start the next smaller size until I had a tiny little circle left in the middle of the flower.
That is when I traced my Dr. Pepper can (I can't craft without the Dr.) then I cut out 3 dr. pepper circles.
I took each circle and folded it in half, then I folded it in half again, then I hot glued it together. When I got all three circles glued, I glued them together. Then I glued the three circles right into the center of the flower. After I was all done, my 8 year old son asked me where I bought that pillow at...priceless.
