My son loves lion, he watches lion and mouse story and try to recite. He is bored with his soft toys mickey,doggy,tiger,rabbit,hen.. I was breaking my head how to make it more interesting for him. Something to cuddle during his favourite time (my favourite time too) yeah.. nap time. Its nice to watch him going to sleeping, a peaceful time of the day after so much of running,tantrum, climbing everywhere and pulling everything down. So yeah I decided to make Lion pillow with bits&pieces.
You need three different fabric two for front and one for backside. Half a meter or half yard each should do and matching thread.
I had this blue fabric less than half yard. From the bits and pieces i managed to find 8"x8" and did freehand cut&sew a cute lion on it.
Sew both edges as below and place them four sides.
I placed the backing pieces right sides down onto the pillow front over. Lay the larger backing piece down first on the pillow front and then the smaller backing 17" x9", make sure right sides are facing towards the right sides of your pillow front.
