Tutorial Tuesday: Knockoff Delancey Felt Petal Pillow from Horchow

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to share this tutorial over at Someday Crafts!  I am excited to put it up on my own site now!

Knockoff Delancey Felt Petal Pillow from Horchow

Horchow sells this pillow for $145.00!  I thought it was beautiful but not affordable so I decided to make a knockoff and share the tutorial with you!

A free printable pattern for the flower pieces can be downloaded here.

To make the petals, I cut 1 inch wide strips of felt, cut the long strip into pieces slightly bigger than the petal pattern piece and then cut out the petals. I did not count how many pieces I needed but it is a big stack!  You can cut more as you go!

Lay the petals around the circle and sew them on. Make 4 layers of petals this way.

Sew a few stitches by hand to give the top petals shape and attach them to the center of the flower by hand stitching it.

Now, for the pillow, cut 1-14×14 inch square and 2-9×14 inch rectangles of the felt. I also cut 1-14×14 inch square and 2-9×14 inch rectangles of lace to add some texture to the pillow.

Stack a 9×14 inch felt piece and a lace piece and hem one of the 14 inch sides. Then, do the same with the other 9×14 inch pieces.

Now layer felt, lace, lace, felt and overlap the 2 back pieces as shown in the picture above and pin it in place. Then, sew around the outside of the fabric pieces and turn the pillow cover right-side-out.

1. Hot glue flower bases on pillow, close to each other so petals can overlap.
2. There are 4 open spaces in the center of the pillow between the flowers.
3. Cut out more of the top petals and sew 2 of the together.
4. Hot glue the top petal pairs into the 4 spaces.

Stuff pillow with your choice of filling or a pillow form.

Thanks for stopping by!!

    Love this pillow. I am sure it is user error, but I cannot download the pattern pieces … will you re-post that link in the comments? Can’t wait to start.

    Just so I am clear, the flowers are sewn with a machine, not by hand correct? Because I would love to attempt this but I do not sew (machine)

      Hi KP,
      I used felt to make the flowers and the pillow. For the pillow, I covered the felt with lace to add some texture. Any fabric store such as Joann’s or Hobby Lobby would carry felt and lace by-the-yard. Happy sewing!
