Intro: Knockoff Delancy Felt Petal Pillow From Horchow

Horchow sells this pillow for $145.00!  I thought it was beautiful but unaffordable so I decided to make a knockoff and share the tutorial!

Materials:
Sewing Machine
Thread
Needle - For Hand Sewing
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Glue Stick for Hot Glue Gun
Felt ~ For Flowers
1-14x14 inch square of felt
2-9x14 inch rectangles of felt
1-14x14 inch square of lace
2-9x14 inch rectangles of lace
Stuffing or a Pillow Form

Step 1:

This is the pattern I used for making the felt flowers.  If you would like to download a copy you can get it here http://www.thegunnysack.com/2011/07/tutorial-tuesday-knockoff-delancey-felt.html

Step 2:

I cut of 9 circles.  To make the petals, I cut 1 inch wide strips of felt, cut the long strip into pieces slightly bigger than the petal pattern piece and then cut out the petals. I did not count how many pieces I needed but it is a big stack!  You can cut more as you go!

Step 3:

Lay the petals around the circle and sew them on. Make 4 layers of petals this way.

Step 4:

Sew a few stitches by hand to give the top petals shape and attach them to the center of the flower by hand stitching it.  I ended up with a stack of 9 but you can do more if you want.

Step 5:

Now, for the pillow, cut 1-14x14 inch square and 2-9x14 inch rectangles of the felt. I also cut 1-14x14 inch square and 2-9x14 inch rectangles of lace to add some texture to the pillow.

Step 6:

1)  Stack a 9x14 inch felt piece and a lace piece and hem one of the 14 inch sides. Then, do the same with the other 9x14 inch pieces. 
2)  Layer felt, lace, lace, felt and overlap the 2 back pieces as shown in the picture and pin it in place. Then, sew around the outside of the fabric pieces and turn the pillow cover right-side-out.

Step 7:

1. Hot glue flower bases on pillow, close to each other so petals can overlap.
2. There are 4 open spaces in the center of the pillow between the flowers.
3. Cut out more of the top petals and sew 2 of the together.
4. Hot glue the top petal pairs into the 4 spaces.

Step 8:

Stuff pillow with your choice of filling or a pillow form.

Step 9:

Fluff up the flower petals and it is ready to display!  Stop by TheGunnySack.com to check out more of my tutorials!

    Don't you just LOVE being able to look at something, then go home and make it for yourself at a fraction of the cost?

    Your pillow is VERY cute!
