Harvest Circle Felt Leaf Pillow



I am definitely into decorating for holidays and seasons not using the typical seasonal colors!  I wanted a harvest feeling pillow that would last me from September through Thanksgiving for my living room.  Instead of using the typical orange, yellow, brown, and red colors I coordinated the pillow to my living room.  I purchased a warm rustic green linen colored fabric and shades of white felt for the leaves. I ordered two packs of these felt leaves from Etsy.  They are taupe, ivory, and white and three different shapes.    


I pinned the first layer of felt leaves in a circle and then using different color thread to match each color of felt I sewed the leaves on to the pillow where the veins would be on a leaf.



After I finished sewing the first layer, I pinned a second layer and sewed, and a third layer and sewed. Sewing on the final layer was a little difficult because it was getting thick.  But that is what I wanted - lots of texture.


After I finished sewing on the felt leaves I finished sewing the pillow.  I used a 20" pillow form for this pillow.


Is the pillow pretty?  I just love how it turned out.  I love the texture of the layers of leaves and the pillow fabric.  It is the perfect fall addition to my living room.

  10. Love this. I think you could even use it all winter. I like the idea of decorating with more neutral colors rather than the traditional earth tones. Thanks for stopping by. Would love to see your parsons shelf.

  13. This pillow is gorgeous! I just started sewing earlier this year and I'm learning a lot as I go, but I can't imagine taking on this! I'm not so precise with my seams yet. :) Great job!

    Check out my blog for 31 Days of Shut Up and Sew where I'm challenging myself to sew something every day in the month of October. It's been a challenge, lemme tell ya. :)

  16. This is absolutely gorgeous! So the next time I want to make another wreath (because I have way too many) I should just make it into a pillow! A beautiful idea and the pillow is so timeless and classic I imagine you will enjoy it for many years to come!
