Looky! These decorative floral throw pillows made with felt at The Purl Bee are unique and contemporary. Good for a bed, good for a couch. The best thing is that I haven’t seen them anywhere else yet. They are … original! I dubbed them as ‘sunburst’ pillows.   Don’t you think they are quite summery in these bold color combinations?     If it had more flower petals, I’d call them yellow sunflower pillows…

You can make some  of these unique decorative pillows yourself by following the wonderfully detailed sewing instructions.  This would make a great summer craft project. Supposedly, it’s an easy sewing project, although the results make it seem like a more advanced craft.
