When you get all your leaves cut out, tear the backing appliqué paper off the leaves and trunk. Then you can arrange them how you want on your pillow front. Once your design is how you like it, press with an iron over each spot for a few seconds making sure not to bump anything out of place. Now you can sew either along the inside edges of your leaves, or you can do a zig zag stitch or blanket stitch around the edges if you prefer.

Now, for the pillow, cut 1-14×14 inch square and 2-9×14 inch rectangles of the felt. Stack a 9×14 inch felt piece and a lace piece and hem one of the 14 inch sides. 1. Pottery Barn Knock-Off Pillows. I have a fun pillow makeover to share with you today!

Pottery Barn Knock-Off Pillows
