Project #119: Raindrop Pillow

Tuesday, 13 November 2012 by Irene Hoofs


Raindrop pillow by Mereta from One More Mushroom

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
*butcher paper
*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!
