You’ll love making this simple starry night pillow! With a few supplies you can put it together in about 30 minutes.
Supplies needed for the Starry Night Pillow:
- ¾ yard of blue fabric
- 18” Fairfield Pillow Form
- Thermoweb Decofoil in Gold
- Thermoweb Decofoil Hot Melt Adhesive
- Iron and Ironing Board
- Print out of star shapes (optional)
Start by cutting the pieces. You’ll need one square 17” x 17” and two rectangles each 17” x 12”.
Take the two rectangles to the ironing board. Fold down ½” along one of the 17” sides, and press. Fold down again and press. Repeat with the other rectangle.
Stitch down the folded edge to secure. These pieces will become the back of the pillow.
You can print out images of stars and trace them, or free-hand draw stars. Draw them onto the paper side of the Hotmelt adhesive. Then cut them out.
Place the stars on the large square of fabric. Arrange them however you like, then fuse down according to the package directions.
Peel off the paper backing.
Cut foil to shape for the stars, and place over each star.
Using the iron and pressing paper, fuse the foil according to the package directions.
Allow foil to cool to the touch.
Once the foil has cooled, peel off the foil backing. The front is complete.
Pin the backing pieces to the front of the pillow, the pillow front should have the stars up. The two finished edges of the backing pieces should be overlapping in the middle.
Stitch around all four sides of the pillow, using a ¼” seam allowance.
Clip off the extra fabric at the corners to reduce the bulk.
Turn the pillowcase right side out through the hole made in the back where the two pieces overlap. Insert the pillow form.
Fluff your finished pillow – it is complete!
