Just finished another Christmas present! This is Amy Butler's Snow Mum Pillow, a free pattern you can find here. I made mine out of ivory felt with a 16" pillow form. I tried to find wool felt but no luck. Here is a link where you can buy "Eco Felt" which is made out of recycled water bottles. I put a zipper in the back and may add a button or bead to the center. I haven't decided yet. I think this pattern would be a great sunflower also. Below is the first step of adding leaves around the outside perimeter.

You keep adding rows of petals and stitch the end in a circular pattern. One thing I found out the hard way.........don't try to iron singes. I am so used to ironing after each step and wanted my flower to lay down neatly. When I started ironing the flower it started shrinking. Ugh! I had to replace about 8 petals, but no one would know............

And here is the finished pillow. Now I want one for myself.

I have melted my fair share of felt too. Hot glue guns are dangerous!
