Spring is here and we are ready for our seasonal pillow swap! Unlike some of our other DIY pillows with more intricate designs, this floral pillow cover features big, wide blooms and beautiful greenery that spans the whole pillow. 

Because this project uses heat transfer vinyl in addition to felt, we recommend using a cutting machine. However, we always include a PDF template so there is the option to cut by hand. You can also cut everything out of felt instead if you don’t have access to a cutting machine.

What a re-leaf — it’s finally spring!

We have been seeing snow in Portland later and later, so we’re relieved that it’s finally spring and everything is beginning to bloom. This floral pillow cover is a great reminder of what we love about the season, and it’s a simple way to refresh your living room or an outdoor space. You can make this exact pillow using the supplies we linked below, or pick out your own colors to complement your decor.

Skill level: Beginner

Crafting tip: If you don’t have a cutting machine, you could replace the HTV flowers with felt so that you can hand-cut the pieces. I also like to use a few very small dots of white glue to hold the fusible webbing and felt in place before ironing them into place.
