You will need:
Premier Lumbar Pillow Insert by Fairfield World
1 yard of Kunin Plush Felt: Pumpkin or Honey, Cashmere Tan
1/4 yard of Kunin Plush: Antique White or White
9" x 12" craft cut Kunin Classic or PrestoFelt: 1 Black
Scissors, paper plate, measuring tape, sewing machine optional, paper
Cut pillow piece 28" by 36". From second piece of plush folded, place paper plate along fabric as shown. It should be in about 8" from edge. Draw along plate curve.
Lift plate up and move so upper curve is as shown. Draw along outer edge of plate. Lift plate again. The width of the curved drawn piece should be about 7". With plush left folded. Cut just inside drawn lines making the two oval face pieces.
Print out pattern and cut out pattern pieces as shown, two innner ears, two outer ears, two sleeping eyes, one nose.
Along the 28" of plush felt glue or sew a 1" hem. Fold plush felt piece wrong side out overlapping the two long ends with the folded finished edge on the inside. The pillow should measure 14" by 28". Clip sides. Sew or glue along short sides. TIP: When gluing lift the inner edges to glue both layers down. Leave clamps until dried thoroughly.
Turn pillow right side out. Smooth and flip over. Make sure plush nap is smooth and in a downward direction for front.
Glue ear pieces together, center equally from each outside edge with 4" between them. Glue face pieces in place as shown.
Adhere nose and sleeping eyes. If using PrestoFelt, you just have to peel off backing. It is easy to use for small pieces as the pattern can be drawn on paper backing.
