I made this about a month ago but just got around to posting it now. Pillow is made of felt. The groundhog shape was affixed via fusible web stuff; then I sewed the pillow together with my machine and stuffed it. Took less than thirty minutes! Smiley

I have to admit that before I actually used the fusible web I read the directions 100 times.  I also made sure the iron was on the right setting. What kind of felt are you using, acrylic or wool?  My pillow is made out of acrylic felt, so I used the setting for that. That is the only tip I can give you, besides the usual "read the directions" with a stern, librarian face.

hehe directions suck though. as far as the ones for fusing cottons anyways. it never sticks. thats why i cranked up the iron temp. but yeah for acrylic felt. probably not the best idea. haven't melted felt doing that but have trying to heat set some gocco prints. so now i'm stuck at how to get the image to be heat set without melting the felt completely.

AMAZING!!! nICe WoRk KuMf!
this is such a fresh new idea!  How well does this fusible web hold up to wear?  Ive always been tempted to try it but chickened out?

I could see this pillow in a store like urban outfitters...but it would be like $39 bucks or something!
 BRAVO! ~M
