For Barbie's bed- I wanted to do a daybed. She needed pillows to go along the back of the daybed, so I decided that I wasn't in the mood to sew. (For the record... I CAN sew, I CHOSE not too...) I started with a piece of cardboard. I then found fabric scraps I had on hand and LOVE. Cut the fabric so it overlaps the cardboard. (You will hot-glue the fabric onto the cardboard back in a few steps...)
That's about how much I overlapped my fabric...
I had this on hand. Poly-Fil is awesome! Just pull some out for now.
I used about this much. Now- place the stuffing inside the fabric. Place the cardboard on top. You are making a sandwich of sorts. Wrap the fabric over the cardboard while stuffing the filling in.
It should get to this part. The filling is underneath the cardboard. The fabric is wrapped around. Hot glue the fabric in place.
Now- fold up the bottom and hot glue in place.
Finish by glueing the top piece of fabric. The back of the pillow looks horrendous. Who cares? Check out the front...
Yay! We made a cute pillow.
Here is Barbie's daybed with three pillows.
