Easy Valentines Felt Pillow Cover

valentines pillow pinLast week I took a little time to craft.  After a busy, busy week, I needed some relaxing creative time.  I wanted an easy project that I knew I could finish, so I decided to make a fun and easy Valentines felt pillow cover.  I used one of the pillows I already had and took the measurements and cut my felt to fit.  For the back of my pillow I made a simple envelope enclosure to take the pillow in and out.

The beauty with working with felt, is that you don’t have to finish the edges, so it is easy to work with.  I cute the shapes out that I wanted free hand from different colors of felt.  Then I hand stitched the felt pieces on with embroidery floss.  The tree branch I also free handed with embroidery floss.

The button eyes bring and extra dimension to the Owl.  After hand stitching the pieces on I sewed the pillow pieces together.  Then I slipped in my pillow and now I think it looks fantastic.  I love that it looks hand-crafted with the hand-stitching, and the colors are perfect for valentines day!

Happy Valentines Day!
