These pillows are great to make, they are advertised as no sew pillows so any age or ability can make these. My 9 year old daughter makes these and has great fun with different designs! I actually found the inspiration to make these from a fellow blogger and as always I love to give the credit to the people who come up with these great ideas. Here is their link and a photo of where I got my idea from: greeneacreshobbyfarm.blogspot.com
- 2 x Felt Circles (Preferably two different colours for effect!)
- Felt pieces for face (ie eyes,mouth etc.)
- Stuffing (I used wadding)
- Fabric Glue
- Needle and thread (optional)
- Fabric Pens (optional)
Step 1: Cut out 2 different circles of coloured fleece (I used a plate - Pic 1)
Step 2: Make some paper templates to make sure that they will fit on the face. (Pic 2)
Step 3: Cut out the fleece using the templates. (Pic 3)
Step 4: Place both circles together and cut around the edges a fringe, long enough to tie together.(Pic 4)
Step 6: Tie the fringe together, with mine it is one red to one pink at the back. Do this about 3/4 the way round leaving a space for stuffing. Add the stuffing and then finish tieing the remaining fringe. (Pic 6)
Step 7: You now have your completed pillow to give as a gift! In the photograph below you can see the completed pillow (Pic 7) and also another one very similar (Pic 8).
These really are so easy to make and a great craft project for children to participate in. You could also have 2 different faces on the one pillow - the choices are endless to which designs you choose!
