No Sew Craft Pillows

Materials:

  • Felt (Yellow, Orange, Black, and White)
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Pins
  • Tape
  • Glue (Hot glue or Tacky Glue)
  • Stuffing (Optional)

Are you ready for summer craft camp with the kids? Make these cute no sew pillows in fun lion and sun shapes. These are SO easy and littles will love them!Step 1:
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.)

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!

Could you possibly leave me a message on my email showing me how to make a pigs face (if you can figure out how). My great granddaughter is crazy for pigs and l'd love to make her a pillow.
