I’ve been looking for another little pillow for our bed without luck and finally decided to make one out of some felt scraps in the interim.
Let me show you my first idea, which was to take a common sumi-e theme of bamboo and translate it into a felt applique.
So plan B was to take one of the motifs from the bedding itself and simply copy that. Muuuuch better.
I chose to freehand my cutting, but for those of you wanting to do this project who aren’t comfortable with that, you could photocopy your pillowcase or sheet and then cut it up into a pattern.
I started with my basic koi fish shape~
P.S. Cute Husband, please note this was made 100% with craft scraps and cost absolutely nothing out of pocket. This has been a public service message of Over-Spending Crafters Anonymous.
