Leaf Pillow

  • By Becky Hanson


Use your crafting machine to cut an assortment of leaves from wool felt. Use your sewing machine to first sew stitches for the stems. Then arrange the leaves as desired and stitch over them to create the “veins”, while at the same time attaching them to the pillow front. The finished size of the pillow shown is 16” x 16” (40cm x 40cm).
