CUTE HOUSE PILLOW TUTORIAL

HOUSE CUSHION

Finished size: 37X20cm (14×7")



MATERIALS 

- Patterned cotton fabric (for bottom, roof and pocket)

- Сotton fabric scraps (for door, windows and trees)

- Interfacing 

- Wooden mini button (for doorknob) 

- Lace or pom pom trim 

- Ribbon 

- Cotton stuffing or other 

- Heat-n-bond lite or non woven interfacing 

- Chopstick 

- Pins or binding clips 

- Sewing machine 

- Machine needle size 80 or 90 

- Applique foot (optional) 

- Sewing needle 

- Thread 

- Marking pen 

- Scissors 

- Iron

STEP 1 

Use the pattern to cut out the pieces for the house (also cut the heat-n-bond out for your door, windows and trees). You can download the pattern here.

STEP 2 

 Pin and sew the roof and bottom together (seam allowance 1⁄4" or 0,75cm). 

STEP 3 

 Press seams to the dark side. 

STEP 4 

Cut two pieces of interfacing, using the house as a template and place the interfacing right side down (sticky side) on the wrong side of the pillow. Press the two layers together. If you use interfacing without sticky side, just sew it to the wrong side of the fabric (seam allowance 0,5cm).

STEP 5 

Stick the lace or pom pom trim to the roof, using glue stick. Wait a few minutes and stitch it. Fold a piece of ribbon in half, place it about 2-3" (4-5cm) from the right edge of your roof and stitch it too.

STEP 6 

Iron the heat-n-bond pieces to the wrong side of your door, windows and trees. Remove paper backing and lay the pieces onto your house. Press them to attach. Then draw the tree branches, using your marking pen. 


STEP 7 

Set your straight stitch length to «1» and stitch twice the door and windows, using black or coordinating thread. Also stitch twice the branches and trees. 


Don’t worry about super straight lines, just have fun! 
Your project will look more charming with small imperfections.

STEP 8 

Get all threads on the wrong side of the house, tie twice and clip them off. Iron the right side of your pillow and sew the button as a doorknob. 

STEP 9 

Place two pieces for your pocket right sides together and sew along long edge (seam allowance 1⁄4" or 0,75cm). Then press the seam open (as it is shown on the photo). 

STEP 10 

Take the pieces and fold it over wrong sides together. Place pocket on the back side of your pillow and sew (seam allowance 0,50 cm). You can skip this step if you don’t need any pockets for your pillow.

STEP 11 

Baste the pillow (pin or use binding clips) and sew all the way around, leaving a 3" (7cm) opening in the bottom. The seam allowance is 1⁄4" or 0,75cm. 

STEP 12

Turn the pillow right side out (use a chopstick to get your corners really nice) and press. Stuff the pillow through the opening. Then just blind stitch the opening by hand.
 

 If you have batting scraps from your previous projects, you can cut them into small pieces and use to stuff the pillow. 

That’s all! :)
