i saw this pillow at target and loved it, but wanted to make my own version! i was already incorporating this plaid fabric into our christmas decor, so i decided to use some for a simple pillow. i had also been saving up some high quality felt for a couple years for just the right project. its a sickness i know. #fabrichoarder
i copied my inspiration pillow as much as possible, but also used a simple google search for “moose silhouette images” for reference.
i sketched on parchment paper since it was the closest thing to tracing paper that i had.
i put the moose silhouette over the felt, and pinned it all over.
i used really sharp scissors to get it cut out, and tiny ones for the tight spaces.
i was using an 18″ x 18″ pillow form, so i cut the plaid fabric to 18 1/2″ x 18 1/2″, and stitched the silhouette to the plaid. i had to stitch really closely to the edge, and also walk the needle slowly around the tight corners.
i was so excited to get this pillow made that i forgot to take any pictures! here’s a great tutorial for making a zippered pillow.
and now this little guy lives on our couch!
i’ve made a little pdf for you if you’d like to try this on your own. my moose is a little bigger than the pdf, so you may want to enlarge it a bit.
