In the process of redecorating several areas of my home my children’s rooms have become my most favorite spaces to get creative in. They love color & have wild imaginations that makes the entire process really fun (even when I have to work late to complete a project). So as of late I’ve been finishing up some pillows for the boys’ room and this print I really love. It’s so adorable and fitting for their ages (1 and 5) yet has such a big boy look.
pillow or pillow stuffing
fabric of your choice (make sure you get enough cut for a 1″ hem for both pieces)
sewing machine (you can sew by hand but a sewing machine is much quicker)
iron on hem (optional)
buttons (amount depends on pillow size)
sewing needle & coordinating thread
Start by measuring two equal pieces of fabric (add 1″ to your final measurements).
With the right sides in (whatever print you want to be showing once it’s finished), pin fabric and stitch together both sides and the bottom of the fabric.
Then fold down open end & iron down using iron on hem (you could sew this using a needle and thread). Turn fabric right side out and insert pillow (pillow stuffing).
Pin together openings allowing for 1/2″ space for buttons.
Using needle and thread sew on desired amount of buttons going across opening. .
**If you are going to use the iron on hem do not
get it on your iron**

|I chose bright colored buttons to reflect the overall
design throughout their room.
