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

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 to check out more of my tutorials!
