Today I’m here to share some fun geometric pillows I made with wool felt. It’s one of my favorite projects I’ve made recently because I had so much fun playing with color!
First things first, you’ll need to pick out some felt. I love high quality wool felt, but if you’re on a tight budget (or in a hurry!) you can do this project with felt from any craft store (which is usually a synthetic material). I bought my felt on Etsy from Crafty Wool Felt. I love the colors they carry.
Next, plan out your pillow top. It’s really fun to place the triangles together, finding the perfect color combinations. I made pretty large pillow tops (about 21 inches square) with 7 squares across both ways.
Quick tip: I tried a couple of methods, but the best way I found to tack down triangles before sewing was just a little bit of fabric glue in the center of each triangle.
Stitch around the pillow, leaving a 4″ gap at the bottom center of the pillow to turn it inside out and add stuffing.
