Peace Sign pillow

Red fleece
Grey felt
Sewing machine 
I've had two pillows with metallic green covers sitting in our living room for quite some time. When I got them (for free from my sister) I had planned on making new covers for them but never got to it. I finally made one (and have supplies to make another)!

First I took the old cover off of the pillow and measured the size. Then I cut the red fleece down to size.
Zippers are not my friend but I decided to try my hand at adding a zipper to the pillow. I used an invisible zipper that I already had on hand.
I pinned the zipper to one side of the fleece and sewed it on. 
Then I pinned the zipper to the other side of the fleece and sewed it on.
Zipper is done! It turned out okay - not the best but much better than anticipated. 
After printing out the peace sign (I made it 11 inches around) I traced it onto the grey felt fabric.
I used a marker designed for tracing on fabric and after a while the marking goes away. 
 Then I cut out the peace sign. 
I centered the peace sign on the fleece and pinned it on.
 Then I sewed around the edges.
Sewing is done!
I put the case on the pillow and it fit perfectly!
I have one more pillow cover to make and then I'll finally have pillows that match my living room. Maybe one day I'll even get to the cushion covers...
