This week my kids and I are Girl Scout camp bound! My son and I will be in charge of the boys camp some of the days, others I will be helping with the Juniors. A great craft the adults came up with this year for the over night is a no sew pillow craft to compliment the “Spa Night” for the Juniors, Cadets and Seniors. In order to fit all the girls and their pillows we decided on a 18×30 pillow.
I recently made a pillow for my 3 year old so she wouldn’t feel left out when her sister got her tent pillow. I started with 3 yards of fabric which I then cut in half. Then you need to mark and measure how long you want your ties. I went with 4 inches.
Make sure you cut an even square off each end of the fabric so the ties will come out even and tie nicely.
Then cut your ties every two inches all the way around the fabric. You can do one inch but be careful when you are tying them because they will rip when you tug. I suggest using fiskar spring loaded scissors because the make the most even cut.
Then tie the fabric carefully, making sure you match each tie. Double knot each piece. Leave a 5 inch section and stuff your pillow with fiber fill. Finish tying the rest of the fabric.
This one is a little overstuffed because my 3 year old decided she wanted to use it as a floor pillow, so in that case you need to over stuff it at first or over time it will lose it’s shape and cushion.
When my daughter makes hers at camp I will post a pic of her finished product. The camp pillow follows the same directions, just different dimensions.
Have fun and send me pics if you make them! I love to post pics of my readers finished products!
