Hey! It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl!! Halloween is fast approaching and if you haven’t had time to do any Halloween sewing – this project is for you! It only takes about 30 minutes! Use Heat n Bond® EZ transfer sheets to print the pattern out, iron it to the black fabric, then iron it to the pillow!!
20″ x WOF duck cloth or neutral light weight canvas
fat quarter or similar black fabric
Heat n Bond® Lite EZ print sheets
22″ or longer zipper
20″ pillow form
Begin by cutting (2) 20″ squares from the neutral fabric
Print the cat pattern (here) and SPOOKY pattern (here) then iron them to the wrong side of the black fabric. Cut out on the pattern line and peel off backing.
Position the pattern pieces as desired or as pictured below on the 20″ square and press into place. Using black thread, stitch around each appliqué piece.
To finish the pillow take the second 20″ square (pillow back) and cut 3″ off:
Insert the zipper and press. Trim off excess zipper.
With zipper pull positioned in the center of the pillow, pin the pillow front and the pillow back right sides together. Sew all the way around the pillow using a 1/2″ seam.
Turn right side out and insert pillow.
In my dining/living room I like to decorate only with black, white, neutrals, and metallics. I love how the pillow looks on the neutral chair – a perfect compliment to the “31” pillow!!
It also looks cute in the family room with some pops of orange!!
