Ever wanted to sew one of those cute pillow animals? Well here's my version and a free sewing pattern! I used stretchy fleece, hook and loop tape for the closure, and a big button to hold the pillow folded (in 'pet' form). And the BEST part about my pattern is that this puppy pillow is actually a pillow cover for a standard sized bed pillow. When the pillow cover needs to be washed... no worries! Just take out the standard bed pillow inside and toss it in the washing machine. My pillows are 20'' by 28''. If yours are a different size, you may need to adjust the cutting dimensions. When the main pieces are sewn together they are actually smaller than the size of the pillow, but that's okay since fleece is stretchy. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic cutting Basic sewing skills Easy applique SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 20'' x 28'', not including the head or tail

Recommended with this pattern

  • 3/4 yard cream or white fleece
  • scraps of black felt
  • 3/4 yard purple fleece

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
