Eddie Pillow

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I have a zipper complex, but I needed to make the pillowcase washable since little sprouts don't tend to be spill resistant. I watched a YouTube video made by Brett Bara for her Sewing in a Straight Line book. Easy-peasy. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make up your own rules.

What you will need

  • Polar fleece for pillow and elephant appliqu
  • quilting cotton scrap for ear
  • quilting cotton for inner pillow form
  • polyester fiber fill for stuffing
  • 7inch zipper.

where did you get elephant pattern?this is simply adorable and want to make lots..thank you
@threegreenbananas answered:
Hi! I hand drew the elephant based on a friend's fabric sample. It was pretty easy since the shape is simple. I drew right on brown craft paper and used that as the pattern. Try Googling elephant clip art to use as a template. There are a lot of copyright free images on the internet. Good luck!

I love your elephant !!!

Hi and thanks! It was so much fun to make, and it was a small enough project to use up some of my scraps. I didn't have to buy anything for this project, and I got to practice sewing zippers.
