I gotten a lot of questions about how we do our pillows, so I thought I’d share our process & some in-progress pics. (=
First I sketch out a rough pattern design of the character on large paper. Then the kids & I search through the fabric supply in my mom’s sewing room and cut out the various pieces in the appropriate fabric. After I iron the designs down, grandma or the kids appliqué the pillow top. (I can’t appliqué… I’ve tried. I suck at it.)
Then we put in a zipper, sew it all together, and stuff a pillow inside.
