Dolly Pillows and Pillowcases
Today I'll show you how I made the little pillows and pillowcases for the dolly bed I posted yesterday. Basic sewing and easy beginner project. For those that have a little more sewing experience, here is where I can help. I have tried to make these as best to scale as possible. In both the relation to the bed (if you choose to make this same bed), but also as pillows. I hope you'll find these are pretty much the same dimensions as adult pillows, but teenier.
Here we go.
What you will need:
-Polyester or cotton batting, or something else to stuff your pillows
Use 1/4 inch seam allowance
Cut four pieces 7 inches X 5.5 inches
This will make you two pillows.
Do this with your other two pieces. Flip right sides out.
Now, for the pillowcases! The fun part.
I'm not sure why I don't have a photo of my pieces, so pretend you see one.
Main fabric- 2 pieces 12 inches X 6.75 inches
Coordinating Fabric- 2 pieces 12 inches X 3.5 inches
Do this with your other pillowcase too.
Do your other pillowcase too.
And do the 2nd pillowcase too.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you how I made the fitted sheet, or maybe the quilt, or maybe something else entirely. :)
You'll find this quick find link under the "Tutorials" tab at the top of the page.
