Show Off Saturday: My First Needle Felted Pillow

Welcome to Show Off Saturday once more! It’s time to share what you’ve been working on and I have a pillow to share.

I got busy with my needle felting machine (it looks a lot like a sewing machine without thread) and finished this pillow for my sister Kat’s birthday.

The applique on this pillow was inspired by some beautiful dome topped cathedrals I visited in Russia years and years ago.

I drew the design for this pillow digitally first so it could be used as an applique too. I’ll polish it up and make it available to my readers if you are interested.

The pillow cover was made by hand-sewing the two felt squares together with a running stitch and pearle cotton. I inserted a pillow form before I sewed the last side. Easy!

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

Happy Sewing!
