DIY Anthro Inspired Horse Print Pillow With Flowers & Feathers


I was looking for a unique design for a pillow for my Mum...
 When I came across this Anthropologie Print, I couldn't wait to make it into a pillow!

I first gathered up a bunch of flowers I made- some of these, these, these, these, these, these, a few felted balls, and some small feathers.

Then I used pencil to lightly sketch the horse onto a piece of fabric- using the image as a reference. I traced over it with black fabric paint and a small paint brush. I sewed a piece of felt over the horse's mane, and then used this tutorial to make a pillow sham with it. 

Then I glued the feathers onto a piece of felt (sticking down off it) and then glued the flowers on top using hot glue.  I used hot glue to attach the felt with flowers to the felt on the pillow cover. That's it! 
I already had the flowers done and in my stash, so this project only took me a couple hours total! Now I'm dreaming of other animals I could do with a flower crown. :)

Have a great week!
