In this article I will show you how to make a handmade cloud pillow in no time!
My daughter was asked to bring a gift to one of her extra curriculum activities that could be nice for both boys and girls so what a better idea than to make something special for that friend, instead of purchasing something in-personal, right?
A pillow is something that fits everywhere. And that both boys and girls can have in their rooms to make them more cozy.
To make this cloud pillow I decided to use neutral colors, such as grey and light green. And to make it even cozier, I used a knit fabric that has one super soft side.
All you need is some fabric and batting. Easy peasy!
Handmade cloud pillow materials:
- Cloud Pattern that you can find by clicking here
- 2 X 30 x 25 cm fabric
First thing to do when making this cloud pillow is to cut 2 pieces using the pattern. You can of course adapt this pattern to your needs, if you want to make it smaller or bigger, just print it out accordingly.
Add 1 cm seam allowance all around.
Pin the 2 clouds together, right sides facing.
Sew the 2 pieces together at 1 cm from the edge (your seam allowance) and don’t forget to leave a gap.
Turn your project right sides out through the gap you left. Pull out all the little corners and edges.
Insert the batting through the gap you left. The more batting you insert, the chubbier the cloud pillow will be 😉 Distribute the batting evenly filling all the space.
Pin the whole you left with the seam allowances inside. Topstitch all around at half cm from your edge. This will close the gap you left at the bottom.
And you handmade pillow is ready to be hugged!
You can embroider a little message on it for a more personalized cloud pillow.
Look at the back of the pillow, so siesta inviting!
And look how nice the handmade cloud pillow looks in different situations!
