This is a super-easy method for making a fun throw-pillow. This project is practically no-sew as well! I saw a throw like this last year in Crate & Barrell or Pottery Barn, or one of those magazines, and thought: I could make that. And now, you can too.
Here are your supplies: heavy canvas fabric, felt for the circles, sharp scissors, Elmer's glue, DMC floss, and a biggish needle for embellishing, batting/stuffing and fabric for the pillow backing.
Gather the variety of felt you'd like to use. Scraps are great. I used mostly the el-cheapo felt from any craft/big-box sewing stores, but because I wanted a few more color options I bought a little bit of the nicer wool-felt from a quilt shop. Using a fine-tip Sharpie trace different circle shapes on the felt. Look around your house for a variety of circle sizes. I used my Accuquilt GO! Cutter die cuts for a bunch of mine. Love it!this throw pillow last year.) Lay out the circles on the felt, playing with colors and size until you get a look that you like. (Pretend there isn't any embellishing on these circles yet - I got excited and forgot to take a picture of that part.)
When all circles are in place, cut a back to match your front. Pin on all sides. Leave a 5-6" opening on one side and sew the rest of the way around.
When done machine sewing, carefully clip corners before turning the pillow right-side out.
