sew a ethnic inspired wool pillow

Pillows made from woolen mats are easy
and quick crafts that just about anybody
can produce.
Brief Description: A woven mat, from south of the boarder, sewn into a pillow, adds plenty of character to my old mission furniture.

Supply List:
  • one woven mat
  • embroidery floss
  • cotton stuffing
  • a woolen piece of fabric for the backing of the pillow
  • scissors

Directions:
  1. Cut the woolen fabric to the exact same size of the woven mat.
  2. Pin the two fabric pieces together.
  3. Blanket stitch around three sides.
  4. Stuff the pillow with cotton filler.
  5. Sew the remaining side shut with the same blanket stitch.
