Poinsettia!? Yep, that's what I said! But it's not Christmas anymore (that's what you're thinking... I can tell). But, guys! I forgot to post this last month, and I really liked it, and I really wanted to, and I meant to. *sads* Besides, this pillow is so flippin' cute that you could make it in any color and it would suit any season of the year. Just think, a baby blue pillow cover with a pale yellow flower... cute! Or, maybe a sage green pillow cover and a cream colored flower... love it! What about a burlap pillow cover and an orange flower... does that say Fall or what? See what I'm sayin'?
I found the tutorial for this pillow from the amazing Centasional Girl last month and I HAD to make it. Kate will show you exactly how she did so that you can make one too - so go check it out!
All you really need to do is make a very simple pillow case, any size that you like. Find some felt and paper, then freehand the petal shape onto the piece of paper. It doesn't have to be perfect, just draw one and when you're happy with it's shape, cut it out and use that as the template for making the felt petals. For the center button, you can pick up a button cover kit at any craft store, or probably any dollar store for really cheap, and they're very easy to make.
Make sure you head over to Centsational Girl for way more detailed instructions and more photos. She even has one that's NOT red and white, promise!
