Now, I am not very good with a sewing machine by any stretch of the imagination, but I have seen a bunch of pillows all over Pinterest recently and I wanted to try a pillow of my own. I decided that felt would be the perfect material to start with as it does not need to be hemmed and is very easy to work with. The Poly-Fil Premier Pillow Insert by Fairfield World is now my new favorite! This Pom Pom Snowflake Pillow went together in less than an hour TOTAL and looks festive enough to leave up until the Spring thaw! The perfect accent to my guest bedroom.

Here's what you need to create a snowflake pillow:
- Fairfield World Poly-Fil Premier™ Pillow Insert 20″ X 20″
- 36” Wide Bolt of Kunin™ Classicfelt™ in Charcoal – 1 Yard
- Beacon Adhesives Felt Glue
- Scissors – I love my Fiskars!
- Pom Poms ½” White (2 bags of 100)
- Pom Poms 1/2″ White Tinsel (1 bag of 25)
- Sewing Machine with Black Thread – This Singer is my go-to machine!
- Ruler – Clear Plastic
- Charcoal Pencil, White
Here's how to create a pillow decorated with a pom pom snowflake:
Measure two squares of Kunin™ Charcoal Felt 24” by 24” from yardage. The Poly-Fil Premier™ Pillow Insert is 20″ by 20″, so add four inches to create the border once the pillow is sewn.
Cut out two 24″ by 24″ squares from felt yardage. Measure and mark two inches in from edges of one piece of Kunin™ Charcoal Felt and then connect lines to form a square. Use a light hand with these lines as you do not want to be able to see them through the stitches.
Match up the marked square of felt with the unmarked square of felt and pin together.
Sew around three edges of the pillowcase with a sewing machine and black or dark thread.
Then stuff with the Fairfield World Poly-Fil Premier Pillow Insert. Carefully hold down pillow form as you stitch up the last edge. Trim threads.
Measure the center of the finished pillow and make a light mark. Starting at the center, apply plain white pom poms with Beacon Adhesives Felt Glue in a snowflake pattern. Now, I know my snowflake has eight sides and I have two reasons why. First, I laid it out with six sides and the pillow front looked empty. Second, eight sides are A LOT easier to figure out the math for! 🙂
Accent with white tinsel pom poms and then, let the glue dry completely before use.
