Baby Pillow Lounger DIY

So as you may or may not know, my husband and I had our first baby back in November and it has changed our lives forever, in all the best ways.  My little one is the joy of my life and all he wants to do his cuddle with me all day and night, unfortunately not allowing me to do such things as eat, fold laundry, etc... and I needed a spot to lay him down where he would still feel held.  Enter this pillow!  Inspired by luxury baby pillows online, this is the low budget version, which you will see by the materials needed.

Materials: 2 pillowcases and 1 pillow, needle, pins, thread, scissors,  ruler, iron, ironing board and (optional) sewing machine.
Yes. That is it.

Start by flipping the pillow case inside out and ironing.

Then using a ruler mark 6 1/2 inches from each corner and mark a square.

Using the inner mark as a fulcrum, mark 6 1/2 inches away in an arc.

Pencil the line in.

Pin along line and stitch with a straight stitch.

Repeat on all 4 corners, but on the bottom 2, where the opening is, stitch inside your pencil line about the width of your presser foot, stopping at the end of your pencil mark.

Trim away excess fabric, turn right side out, and iron.

Mark 6 inches inward from both sides of pillowcase and mark points, connect into line and pin.  Repeat on both sides

The middle line is placed between these 2 lines, extending past by 3 inches.

Stitch over pencil lines.

Take filling out of other pillow and stuff outer edge.  May need to use a tool, like a ruler, to shove filling up towards top. Stitch opening shut by hand.

And your pillow is complete! And because it was made from a pillowcase, you can use another pillowcase over it as a sheet!

Till next time! ♥️
