Dot-to-Dot Pillows Tutorial
Categories: Bedding, Kid Friendly, Pillow
These dot-to-dot pillows will be a huge hit with the kids in your life. Cheap toys as favors for kids’ parties drive me a bit crazy, so when possible, I try to think of favors that will be enjoyed and can double for one of the party activities. We made these as an activity and party favor for my 6-year-old’s birthday party. These pillows were a huge hit with the little girls…and a huge hit with their moms.
These pillows are really fast and easy to put together. You’ll use some Tulip Dual Tip Fabric Markers to transfer simple dot-to-dot patterns onto one side of your pillow. Stitch the pillow up. Then either stuff the pillows yourself to have them ready, or make stuffing the pillows one of the party activities. Then set the kids loose with the fabric markers and see what they create. I found having the basic structure of the picture gave them plenty of room for creativity, while also encouraging them to fill up the space.
Amount of fabric referenced in the instructions is for 3 pillows.
