Pillow Happy!

Look-see what I made at our ward's Super Saturday! Makes me smile a lot :)

It was so simple to make, and BEST PART? NO SEW! Yep, just some fabric glue (or hot glue would work, too - in fact, I might go with that for the next one - yes there will be another one!)

Our teacher was the fabulous Nicole from A Dash of Sass. She had everything for us that we needed (i.e. a pillow, and about a yard of felt, glue, and pins). I just loved the many color combos we could chose from. I went with a rather mellow choice that matches my living room, but hw fun to do a pink, turquoise, or fushia for a little girl's room? You can read a how-to on this amazing blog called"H is for Handmade". TONNES of inspiration to be had there.
I added a cute wooden button to the center to finish it off, and I just love it!!

For a pattern for this pillow, check out this post from "H is For Hamdmade":

Wow! How great did that turn out!!!?? It is a funny thing - as I was making my pillow and writing the tutorial, I thought to myself "This would make a great super Saturday craft!" Thank you so much for the great mention, and for your support! I am thrilled that you liked the idea and were able to teach it to others!

I had so much fun doing this project! I used hot glue instead of fabric glue and it worked like a charm! It looks so great on my new chair!
