Felt Heart Friendship Pillow

Making pillows with felt creates home decorations that are bright, cheerful and festive. This felt rainbow heart pillow is a fabulous beginner project for someone who is learning to sew. It includes a little hand stitching and a little on the machine too. I love the felt hearts. Making hearts from my leftover small pieces of felt from other projects makes me so happy.
