Deer Appliquéd throw pillow

When you have a home décor idea in mind, but you can’t find what you’re looking for in stores, there’s only one solution: make your own!

For my pillow, I wanted a pillow that was brightly-colored, but with a folksy design. I printed a deer outline from my computer onto regular printer paper. Print whatever design you want!
Pin this outline onto felt and trim out your deer carefully using the Amplify® RazorEdge™ Fabric Shears.
