Felt Flower Pillow!

Hi guys!
So I've wanted to do a Felt Flower Pillow for AGES! I'd seen them everywhere, in all kinds of different colours and styles, in shops and on crafty blogs, but had never attempted one. My main excuse reason? I didn't have a Glue Gun or Fabric Glue. But now.... I do! <Remember that post? ;) > So... I decided to attempt one! It came down to these two tutorials which I loved. This one from H for Handmade and this one from The Crafting Chicks. In the end I made the H for Handmade one, but I'll probably make the other one sometime in the future! :)  I kind of winged when I actually made it, to be honest! I changed some measurements and things like that, but I'm SUPER pleased with how it turned out! I do recommend that you go over to H for Handmade and check out Amy's tutorial! Unfortunately, when I uploaded the photos from my camera to my computer, I didn't include one of the finished pillow. The one below is just pinned down. :/ (Tip: Remove pins before doing your next layer of petals so you don't hot glue a pin into your cushion. I know, it happened to me!) The finished pillow looks like this (minus the pins) on a purple gingham background. Hopefully I'll get around to uploading that pic soon! Oh, and apologies for the terrible picture quality. My photography skills are non-existent leave something to be desired!

I leave you with this >> awesomeness I found via Pinterest. It's a seat made from magazines and a cushion! Cool or what?! S xx
