Project #119: Raindrop Pillow
This Raindrop pillow is a fun way to reuse an old sweater. You can shape it any form you like.
What you’ll need:
*an old sweater
*a fat quarter of fabric (I used black polka dot fabric)
*small piece of black felt
*black embroidery floss
*coral embroidery floss
Step 1: Draw a rain drop on the butcher paper leaving 1/4 seam allowance.
Step 2: Pin the template to the sweater and cut the raindrop shape out of the sweater.
Step 3: Cut the raindrop shape out of the polka dot fabric.
Step 4: Put the two raindrop pieces together right sides together and sew with a 1/4 seam allowance. Leave a 3 inch opening at the bottom.
Step 5: With the black felt cut four legs leaving 1/4 seam allowance. Sew the legs together and turn right side in (you might need to use a chopstick). Stuff the legs.
Step 6: Attach the legs onto the raindrop.
Step 7: Sew on the eyes and mouth and you’re finished!
