Bulls-eye Pillow

My house is feeling the effects of the “nesting phase”. I had a productive weekend and almost have the “babies” rooms switched out (Yes, I am still calling Finn an baby!). With all the baby preparedness I have been doing, I thought I would take a little break and do a quick craft for my own room. I whipped out this super easy pillow in 40 minutes! I saw something yesterday that reminded me of my Mom’s old bedding from when she was little (because she still has the pillowcases to prove it). So here is the 60′s inspired Bulls-eye Pillow.

This is the most unscientific tutorial ever!

- 4 pieces of felt
- stuffing
- 1/2 yd of solid fabric

-Cut 2 14″ squares from your solid fabric

-Pick out 4 pieces of felt (in a monochromatic family and sort lightest to darkest)

- Use a template of some sort (even a bowl) to trace your smallest circle. Mine is about 5″ in diameter. Sew that circle onto your next color. Use a very small seam allowance. Then carefully cut around it about 1/2″ all the way around. (I told you this is not scientific)

-Keep doing this with all of the “layers”. Then pin the bulls-eye to the front of the pillow and sew into it the same way you were sewing onto the felt.

- Finish just like you would any pillow, pin and sew right sides together leaving room for flipping. Stuff and hand-sew the opening. Voila!

Look at it’s new happy home :)

    I LOVE it! Really, out of all the pillows that have been posted so far yours is my fave. Too bad I’m not the guest judge, huh? I love it’s simplicity and modern design, and that it looks so easy to put together. I’ll be making one in the future! But in the meantime, I’m still working on my design for the pillow party.
