DIY: Transform Your Throw Pillows

Create a unique piece and learn a couple of hints from designer Beam Mariano

Give Beam some felt fabric and she can surely come up with sweet, functional pieces in no time. Her shop Artwine (www.shopartwine.com) is proof of her love affair with felt. Beam says, “I knew I wanted to make a floral design for the pillows because I want to show how versatile felt cloth is. It’s a fabric I use in my handmade bridal line, Celebrate Artwine, because it’s sturdy enough to make 3D petals yet soft enough to be a pillow cover.” The felt flowers add a multi-dimensional and textural effect to the pillows, and even if sat or leaned on, these everlasting blooms won’t get crushed.
