Pinwheel Pillows

By: Lisa Storms for Fiskars

These colorful Pinwheel Pillows from Fiskars are a great way to add some color to your living room or bedroom.  The fun pinwheel embellishment is easy to do and is a great way to add a nice touch to everything from pillows to blankets.  You won't believe how easy these pillows are to make, and making these cute pinwheels is a great way to use up leftover fabric scraps from your other sewing projects.

  2. Sew right sides together with a half inch seam allowance leaving a couple of inches open to turn wrap right side out.
     
  3. Once turned right side out, press and top stitch around edges.
     
  4. Sew or iron-on Velcro strips to ends of wrap for closure.
     
  5. Now you are ready to embellish with felt pinwheels.  Cut out scalloped squares from assorted felt using the Fuse System and scalloped die.
