Today was pretty busy, despite not having school and not leaving the house except to check the mail. I rearranged the apartment and did some serious winter-spring cleaning. I also made a pillow with felt words. As you know, I enjoy making things with felt, like this pillow for example. Have you ever seen Supertroopers? This quote is from that movie and it's hilarious.
This is how I made my pillow: I printed out the quote and cut out the letters, then pinned them to a sheet of felt.
Then I tacky glued the words onto a piece of square fabric. For my fabric, I used an old dress from the thrift shop.
Then I sewed the words on. I tried using both hand sewing and machine sewing and decided machine sewing was the way to go. It wasn't as easy to control, but it was a heck of a lot faster. Afterwards, I placed the fabric right sides together with another piece of fabric of the same size and sewed them together, leaving a small opening. After turning it right side out, I filled the pillow with stuffing and whip stitched the opening closed.
I'm thinking of making some more, for friends and family. What quotes would you put on your own word pillow?
