Here are my most recent projects. Done on a whim, not planned, very fast, very fulfilling. The haunted house pillow was purchased from a Provo Craft outlet months ago, and I wanted to have a couple of pillows to go with it. These pillows sit on a wicker chest that serves as a place to store shoes in my entry way.
They are both made of felt. For the circle one I cut out a bunch of circles arranged them in a grid and stitched around the edges using a blanket stitch and a contrasting color of embroidery floss. For the spider pillow (my son's favorite) I stitched an orange circle ( created by tracing a dessert plate) to the pillow using a blanket stitch. Then, I cut out a spider from black felt using a free clip art image I found on Google as a guide and stitched it to the orange circle using a running stitch. Then I stitched on a strip of white felt using a running stitch.
