Lately, I have been obsessed with creating mini stuffed pillows. I've
created mini hearts, donuts, stuffed robots, animal balloons, and now
mini pretzels! Since I taught myself to sew, I’ve been all about simple
projects like pillows, simple fix stiches or easy to sew craft projects.
Today, I'll be showing you how to make your own mini pretzel pillows. This is such an easy project, and you may recognize that I used a similar approach in my Balloon Animal Pillow tutorial.
To create your own mini pretzel you will need the following materials:
1/4 yard of brown knit fabric (I also used a metallic knit)
White scrap fabric
Thread, scissors and sewing machine
Dowel rod (wooden cylindrical rod)
Hot glue & glue stick
Cut a 5” x 22” inch strip of your knit fabric and fold in half lengthwise with the right sides together. Sew along the long edges, leaving both ends open.
Turn the strip of fabric right side out so your stitches are on the inside. Note that this may take a little while because the material is so thin.
Using a dowel rod, push the stuffing all the way through. Once the strip of knit fabric is all nicely stuffed, set aside the dowel rod and fold your stuffed tube of fabric to form a pretzel.
Sew a thin line of stitches on both ends to attach to the pretzel.
Cut tiny strips of white fabric to form either sprinkles or salt rocks. Carefully hot glue to the pretzel pillow.
My daughter is now obsessed with her mini pretzel pillows, and this is a great afternoon craft for all those pretzel lovers out there!
What other fun designs could you make a pillow out of?
