Pocket Pillows – A Love of Mine

1 Mar

I’m bringing back an oldie but a goodie!! If you followed me on my previous blog you know that I love making pillows :D I don’t sell these pillows on my etsy store mainly because what I make I love so much I can’t let them go! I’m not really sure what these pillows are really called – so pocket pillow is my name for it!

First I cut out the fabric in three pieces. The two back pieces I ironed down a half an inch to make it a finished edge.

After sewing down the half inch edges I pinned the pillow all the way around in preparation to sew!

That zig zag triangle stitch is obviously my favorite ;) I feel like it makes everything so sturdy!

Once it was done I flipped it inside out!

Put the pillow in through the pocket in the back and it’s ready to go! Pocket pillows are my favorite because they are easy to sew, easy to get the pillow in and out for washing (I do have a messy toddler in my house), and you never have to worry about laying on an uncomfortable zipper when you are taking a nap :)

The one negative to a pocket pillow is because it has the opening in the back it doesn’t hug the pillow extremely tight. I don’t mind that so it’s not a problem for me.

What do you think?

Love Always,

Jennifer
