DIY Raindrop Pillow

IMG_0492_2

I’m back to work, and it was time that I did some diy post. This one is a different one, no more fashion accessories for now.

I got a sewing machine for christmas and I was thinking all the time what could I do with it, since I’m learning and I’m still not able to do some Haute Couture. My Sis told me about this tutorial so I had to do it. My version it’s a little bit different since I didn’t sew legs to it, but pretty much it is the same. Took me some time to find fabrics that I liked but well, I think I’ve chosen quite well didn’t I?

These two are going to someone very special that hasn’t been born yet (just a few days/hours to go), and I hope she likes them 😀

You’ll need

  • a newspaper
  • a pencil
  • pin needles
  • 2 pieces (approx. 50 x 50 cm) of fabric : I used a blue velvet one, and a two-tone polka dot blue
  • scissors
  • needle and white thread
  • sewing machine (optional)
  • polyester batting (150 gr will be enough)
  • embroidery needle
  • black embroidery floss
  • coral embroidery floss

1

Draw a raindrop on the newspaper paper. Pin the template to the velvet fabric and cut the raindrop shape out of the fabric leaving approx. 1cm seam allowance. Cut also the raindrop shape out of the polka dot fabric.

2

Put the two right sides pieces together and sew, leaving an opening at the bottom for the stuffing. Turn right side in and stuff the pillow with batting. Hand stitch it closed. Sew on the eyes and mouth and you’re finished!
