Felted Loops Pillow

Finally! I finished it!

It ended up being a little lopsided and not quite as even and perfect as the picture in the pattern, but that just gives it character, right? I was also expecting to make an 18×18 inch pillow like the pattern said, but ended up with 12×12. I even had a couple extra feet of yarn rope, I don’t know how you would get an 18″ square pillow out of this! The loops would have to be so much smaller…

There was actually a lot of handsewing I had to do post felting. Looking back on it, I don’t think the “lattice” strategy of sewing the loops together was very effective.  I ended up sewing most, if not all, of the inbetween spaces after it felted. Also for some reason, I made bigger loops in the corners, so they kind of stick out further than the rest.

I also bought some fabric the same color as the yarn and lined the pillow form with it to help camouflage specs of pillow showing through the loops. The back of the pillow is two felted pieces buttoned together. To make the buttonholes I simply cut small holes into the felted fabric.

Now I just need to find the perfect place to put it.

  1. FINALLY! 🙂 Love it! So cute! Love the buttons on the back too!
    I think I will be able to sleep tonight because I now know how the felted loops pillow was completed!

  2. The pillow really turned out cute! Good job. The uneven corner loops just add to the whimsical flavor. Can’t wait for the next project.

  4. awesome! I saw this pillow on the LionBrand site and loved it. I’m thinking about cheating and making some t-shirt yarn to use instead of having to knit on and on and on and then felt. Do you think it’d work?

    • Oh . My. Gosh. That sounds totally cool! I would think t-shirt yarn would work. And it would be wayyyy better than knitting all that rope! You should try it out, I can’t wait to see it!
