Transform your room with this simple and inexpensive idea! Make cushion covers in the form of small felt scallops. Such work does not require experience, and it will take very little time. The idea can also be used to create larger objects, such as a rug or bedspread.
For these covers will need the following materials:
- The simplest pillowcase, which will serve as the basis of the cover (can be sewn from any fabric, including lining);
- Pieces of colored felt or other thick fabric. If you want a case with a gradient, choose a smooth color transition.
- Pencil or chalk for marking.
- Glue gun or glue for textiles.
The whole case will consist of felt circles of the same size. Start by building patterns on paper. You can do without a compass and just circle the bottom of a suitable-sized jar.
Now use this circle as a piece, applying to the fabric and cutting the necessary details. If you have sharp enough scissors, you can save time and cut several circles at a time. To do this, simply fold the felt in several layers and attach the paper on top.
Apply a little glue to the top edge of the pillowcase and gently attach the felt circles so that a smooth line is obtained. In order to make the next layer, apply glue on the middle of the first row of circles. Then apply a new layer so that it half covers the previous one. And so on until the entire pillow case is covered with felt.
The same operation is repeated on the other side of the cover. It remains only to seal the side edges with glue drops (you can skip this step), and the cover is ready. Try to make a few pillows with circles of different colors and sizes!
