Cloud Pillow!






After seeing adorable whimsical cloud pillows everywhere, I took it as a sign that I should probably make one for my daughter's new big girl room. ;) So today, I'm sharing the DIY on how to make one!



Ingredients:

*Paper (for pattern making)

*Fabric

*Pins

*Fabric pen or pencil

*Pins

*Lots of poly fil :)

Recipe:


Step 1: Draw your cloud template- you can make it as big or as little as you'd like. Mine was about 14 inches tall and 17 inches wide. Ikea paper rolls are perfect for this. You can find them in the children's section. :)


Step 2: Cut out your pattern and trace onto your two fabric pieces (right sides together) with your fabric pencil or pen.



Step 3: Pin and Sew along your traced pattern, leaving about a 4 inch gap at the bottom.



Step 4: Cut excess fabric off around your cloud, leaving about a 1/4-1/2 inch seam allowance.

Step 5: Turn your cloud right side out through the gap and press.


Step 6: Stuff with poly fil until your cute cloud pillow is nice and plump (like a fluffy cloud should be).


Step 7: Whip stitch the opening at the bottom closed

And your finished with your sweet little whimsical cloud pillow!


I made my daughter's cloud reversible so that if she gets a little bored with one side, she can flip it to the other side.



Love, 

Sierra
