Certain things always come to my mind whenever summer rolls around. S’mores, swimming, ice-cream, and summer camp. Hi! I’m Leslie from Pink Stripey Socks and by golly, do I love me some summer camp crafts. Today I’m sharing this cute summer camp-style craft that you and the kiddos are sure to love! We’re making some cuddly sun and lion felt no sew pillows!
- Felt (Yellow, Orange, Black, and White)
- Fabric Scissors
- Glue (Hot glue or Tacky Glue)
- Stuffing (Optional)
Cut out two identical circles from the yellow and orange felt. Pin the circles together.
Cut out fringe that is at least 2” long around your felt circles. (I placed a piece of tape on my scissors to mark off 2.” Or, you could just trace a smaller circle inside your larger circle that is 2” away from the edge.) The fringe needs to be at least 2” long because you’ll have to tie them together in the next step. Thinner fringe is also easier to tie than wider fringe.
Tie your fringe together around ¾ of your circle. (Leave a portion untied to fit your stuffing.)
Cut out felt face pieces and glue them on. (I glued on a sun face to one side of my pillow and the lion face to the other side of my pillow.)
Time to stuff your pillow! Stuffing would be great to use. However, if you’re like me and don’t have any stuffing on hand, just cut up excess pieces of felt. Tada! Instant stuffing!
Tie up the remaining fringe.
There is something so nostalgic about these cute and cuddly no sew pillows. And if you want to keep the summer camp vibes going, check out the awesome crafts below!
