I saw this cute Baby Pillow picture uploaded to Pinterest the other day and I thought that I needed to make that for baby to lay on so he lay next to me with I’m working. It was an easy and fairly inexpensive project to make. Try and buy fleece in the winter when the fabric stores always have it on sale. (Like getting my fabric from Fabric.com)
What you need:
- 1 yard of fleece total (can be two 1/2 yard pieces of different colors)
You want to make an oval from each piece of fleece. To do that I just folded each 1/2 yard piece in half and cut off the sides at an angle.
Then I used the first piece as a template for the second to make sure they would match.
Cut your fringes all the way around each piece. I left my fleece layered like you can see in the picture above so I was cutting through all 4 pieces (2 pieces of fleece but still folded in half) as I went. I made the cuts about 3 inches deep.
Do this all the way around the cut sides of the fleece. Not along the folds.
Then it’s time to tie the 2 halves together! Once you are just left with a small opening, fill with pillow stuffing.
Perfect! Now baby can just lay right in the middle of his big soft pillow and feel cuddled 🙂
