  • Pillow
  • 1. For pillow front and back, cut two 13" white felt squares. Print and cut out patterns. Cut materials as indicated.
  • 2. Use photo as guide to free-hand cut and arrange black felt strips on front for tree branches, overlapping and trimming as needed. Place bird on branch close to center. Place leaves along branches. (Note: Edges of leaves should not be closer than 1" to edge of pillow.) Apply small dabs of glue under black felt shapes to secure to white felt before embroidering.
