Materials: Penguin Pillow Sewing notions Filler, we used rice and lavender. Step 1: Cut out the penguin pillow and slip cover. Step 2: Place the critter pillow panels together and sew around the dotted lines. Step 3: Fill 2/3 full with rice. and lavender. It should look like this. Step 4: Sew pillow closed. Step 5: Take the back slip pillow panels, fold and iron on the yellow dotted lines. Step 6: Topstitch the fold. Step 7: Sew around the entire slip cover. I like to serge the slip cover, that way in the wash it does not fray. Step 8: Slip the cover over the pillow. Ta Da! I am hoping to win the Spoonflower fabric contest . My fingers are crossed. If you want to help please vote for this fabric . Thanks!
