Hi friends! Sharing a fun and super fast pillow with you all today - The Monochromatic Leaf Pillow.

This was created with my Sizzix Big Shot, the new die by Tim Holtz - Layered Leaf, gray wool felt and a simple pillow form from Ikea! I love monochromatic styles and how staying with the same color in different shades can create a very modern and clean look.

  • Lay each leaf face down on a piece of newspaper and spray a light layer of Spray Adhesive. Press down on your pillow shape and let dry.
  • At your machine stitch a few lines down each point of your leaf to attach to your pillow.
