Sweet Berry Dreams 

While there is no shortage of pillows on our site, this is our first ever in “jumbo” size. Measuring an impressive 15 inches across, this beginner-friendly felt blueberry pillow offers a great opportunity to learn some basic construction. To get that ripe blueberry color, we used our wool blend felt in Ocean Blue for the berry itself and Night for the center of the calyx. To match the felt colors, we chose embroidery floss in Dark Wedgewood and Very Dark Gray Green. Feel free to grab five sheets of your favorite shade of blue felt and a 32 oz bag of fiber filling to create your own sweet escape. 

Whether on your favorite armchair, hammock, or in your kiddo’s secret hideout — we’d love to see where this blueberry pillow ended up. Share your photos with our crafter’s community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
