FELTED ROSE PILLOWS

Packed and ready to ship to Hillary in California . . . a set of felted rose pillows!  These pillows were so much fun to make.  I have a prototype pillow in my Etsy shop, Gillyflower Cottage.  

Hillary chose a set of pillows to be made according to her own color scheme with one pillow having a nest, and the other, a bird.  I have a post on the making of the original pillow and my inspiration for that pillow here.





The pillows are made from wool felt, wool roving, and upcycled wool sweater fabric.  The wool fabrics are then felted through the process of washing in hot water and drying in a hot dryer.  Eggs are handmade and felted with wool roving.  The eggs on this pillow were made with heather blue wool roving and a touch of gray roving for a slight variation and more realistic egg.

Pillows will be made according to your personal color choices and the
number of eggs customized to fit YOUR family nest!
