Felt Butterfly Pillow Tutorial
This is my weekend project, a super simple sewing project that can be done in just one day. The pillow design pretty much sums up what I like...simple, chic, modern and contemporary.
I chose the butterfly silhouette in solid colours only as I don't want the design to look too busy. The simpler, the better it would be.

To make one, just follow my tutorial.
