Bring a little nature indoors this winter with a handmade felt pine cone throw pillow. Use a round, stuffed object for your base. If you can’t find a round pillow look for a stuffed toy ball. Cut ovals out of brown felt and stitch or use fabric glue to attach them in overlapping layers. Use larger ovals at the base, and smaller ovals as you get to the top of the pinecone.
Visual tension and faint contrast were added to the bed ensemble with custom-sewn pillows made from organic woven fabrics. When having custom pillows made, keep in mind that the proper insert has a huge impact on the overall look. Although more costly than polyester inserts, down-filled inserts are worth the money for their fuller effect.
Pick your favorite Christmas saying and stitch it to a pillow. You will need the following materials: fleece fabric for the front and back of your pillow (size according to an existing pillow or insert OR decide on a new measurement and buy filling too), felt for the letters, pins, scissors, computer with printer, lightweight paper (for tracing), pencil and sewing machine.
