The tutorial ::
Felt Ruffle Rosette Pillow Pattern
Step-by-step Instructions – Felt Ruffle Rosette Pillow Pattern
- Cut circles
- Fold them 2x. Secure each rosette with 2 stitches near the center circle.
- 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.
- 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.
