Free printable patterns are included below to make this project even easier for you.

Time:  30 Minutes

Skill Level:  Beginner

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Kunin® Classic™ Felt 9” x 12” Craft Cuts – Walnut Brown (2), Prickly Purple (2), Pumpkin Spice (1)
  • Poly-Fil® from Fairfield World™
  • Straight Pins
  • Lace – Brown, 12” length
  • Embroidery Floss – Variegated
  • Embroidery Needle
  • Scissors
  • Acorn Pillow Patterns – download below

INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP ONE

Gather all supplies. Download, print and cut out Acorn Pillow Patterns HERE.

STEP TWO

Layer two pieces of Kunin® Classic™ Walnut Brown Felt and Acorn Base pattern together, securing with straight pins and trace around the pattern then cut out with scissors. Repeat this process with two pieces of Kunin® Classic™ Prickly Purple Felt and Acorn Cap patterns. Trace and cut out one leaf from Kunin® Classic™ Pumpkin Spice Felt.

STEP THREE

Carefully attach lace to the top edge of the front Walnut Brown Felt Acorn base and Prickly Purple Acorn cap with straight pins.  Thread embroidery floss onto needle and straight stitch the lace, the acorn base, and the acorn cap together.  Repeat with back of the back of the Acorn base and cap, but without lace.

STEP FOUR

Stack the front and back layers of the Acorn together, line up the edges and secure with straight pins. Thread an embroidery needle with floss and blanket stitch the edges, leaving a small two-inch opening at the side for stuffing. 

STEP FIVE

Stuff the Acorn Pillow with Poly-Fil® from Fairfield World™ through the small opening left at the side. Pull apart small pieces of the stuffing and work down into each section of the pillow using a chopstick or pencil. I like a soft stuff, so I use a bit less Poly-Fil. If you prefer a harder stuff, use more and pack it tighter.  Once the Acorn Pillow is stuffed, stitch it closed.

STEP SIX

Thread needle with embroidery floss and back stitch veins onto the Pumpkin Spice Leaf and then stitch the leaf to the base of the Acorn stem.
