Today we have a quick “How To” for making a Halloween Full Moon Pillow with Bats.
For this project we used:
*Striped quilting cotton for the pillow front and black quilting cotton for the pillow backing
*A 16″ x 16″ pillow form (these can be purchased online HERE, at your local craft store, or even at Wal-Mart)
To make these pillows you can use the printable instructions found in HERE.
It will give you step by step all the measurements and cutting instructions. Just follow them but stop after you get to step #2 and follow these next steps to create your sunflower then return to step #3 and finish up your pillow cover.
Alright! So let’s get going!
Step #1. Cut out your pillow front from your striped fabric and 2 back pieces from black fabric. Use craft felt to cut out the moon and the two bats.
Step #2. Baste spray or pin your moon to the front of your pillow.
Step #3. Using matching thread sew around the entire perimeter of the moon.
Step #4. Pin your bats in place.
Step #5. Using black thread, stitch down the center of each bat…from the head down through the body.
Step #6. Pin the bat wings in place (fluffing them up a bit instead of laying them flat to give them a 3-D effect).
Step #7. Tack the bat wings in place where you pinned them. (Use black thread and three or four stitches forward and back to hold them in place.)
Step #8. Return to the printable pillow making instructions and pick up where you left off at Step #3.
