It’s finally summer here in Portland, and I am suddenly overcome by millions of home projects that I want to tackle. Project #1 this morning: a felt flower pillow.
I saw felt flower pillows at Target the other day and thought “dude, I could probably make that.” And so I did.
To make this super simple embellished pillow, I just sewed a simple open flap pillow cover. Then I cut out a bunch of half circles of felt and sewed them onto the pillow cover by hand in a floral pattern.The final touch was five half circles folded into petals and hot glued into the center.
Next up on the summer project list:
* New entryway wall art
* I have two large canvasses I’ve been meaning to paint for a couple of years, to create a diptych to hang in our living room
*New paint for my son’s room
* Paint the master bedroom (we still have to figure out a design for our paint treatment & my son’s room)
* Do a fun wall treatment above the media center
* Redesign my son’s room taking out his little kid furniture and bringing in big kid furniture.
What’s on your Summer To Do List?
