Quick Craft Post: Onesie Lavender Pillow

| September 18, 2011 | 8 Comments

A friend dropped off some cute Onesies for crafting… they were adorable and tiny. Because of that the cute little designs had so little fabric around them, that what I could make with them was limited… so thought of making these quick lavender pillows – she can keep them in with her girls’ clothes or when they need settling at night, put them under their pillow. Lavender is wonderful.

I literally cut out as much fabric around the bird and teddy as possible and then just gave it a quick sew around on the sewing machine. T-shirt fabric is hard to sew, so take it easy. Afterwards you can squish it a bit to shape it.

Underneath the teddy’s right arm, you can see there is a press stud which I had to keep, as there were was so little fabric.

I also like the reverse:

I think they make a great little keepsake/ upcycle in minutes! Hooray for lavender crafts!

    They are so lovely, and would make such a nice stocking filler for any little girl. its also a nice way of saving those favourite t-shirts/clothes of your children (or am I the only daft one who hates seeing an old favourite go!)

    This is just a precious project. I can’t wait to try it. I’ve made the lavender heating pads. These would be so soft.
