That is what we started with. I wasn't sure if it was a pillow or stuffing so we took it apart.
We used the old pillow cover as our pattern and cut out our fabric.
The fabric I purchased at Ikea about a year ago and it just sat on my shelf.
I wanted to make it girly so I added a ruffled flower. I'm going to add these
instructions only because the first time I made ruffles it was stress and then I
found an easier way. You start with a piece of fabric 3 inches wide and as long as you need.
Then fold in half length wise and iron.
Fold sides to meet in the middle and iron.
This is what it should look like
Flip over and sew a straight stitch down the middle
Tie top and bottom thread on one end together. On the opposite end pull top thread to start to ruffle.
Then press and sew starting with center of flower working your way out.
Sew the edges of the pillow together leaving an opening so you can flip it inside out. Stuff and then either hand sew or machine stitch the opening closed.
The completed pillow.
With the other pillow I simply cut out the flowers from the left over fabric for the dress(next post) I made for my other hula girl.
and stitched them on to the pillow.
