Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Measure the dimensions of your pillow and add an inch to each side. (For example, if your pillow is 10 inch x 10 inch, cut your fabric for the front of the pillow 12 inch x 12 inch.
  • 2
    Take your pillow measurements and cut the length in half, then add a few inches. (For example, if your pillow is 10 inch x 10 inch, the two pieces for the back of the pillow should be cut to 10 inch x 7 inch.) After hemming and sewing them, this will result in an opening in the back of the pillowcase to put the pillow in, with about a 3 inch overlap.
  • 3
    Draw a tooth onto your White felt and cut it out. Sew the tooth onto the fabric you will use for the front of the pillow, making sure to leave the top of the tooth open so you can use it as a pocket for lost teeth.
  • 4
    Take the two pieces for the back of your pillow and hem one side of each, where they will overlap.
  • 5
    Once the two pieces are hemmed on the sides they will overlap, place the front fabric with the inside facing up on your work area. Place the two pieces for the back of the pillow with their “front” facing down. Pin them together and sew all the way around your pillowcase.
  • 6
    Turn your pillowcase inside out and put pillow inside through the overlapped opening in the back.
  • 7
    Sew or glue buttons onto the pillow.
