Step-By-Step Instructions

Material List

  • Fabric
  • Ribbon
  • Stuffing or FiberFill

Sewing Pattern

Fold each 20-30 cm length of ribbon/tape in half to create a handle, aligning the raw ends. Pin the raw ends in place at the center of each V-clip with the loop falling to the inside, and stitch.

Pin two of your three pieces of cut fabric right sides together along one side, from one V-clip to the opposite V-clip.

Using a 1 cm seam allowance, stitch from the precise center point of the V on one side to precisely that same point on the opposite side. The other side remains open

Place your third fabric piece into position against one of the remaining raw edges of the original two pieces, matching all the curves. Stitch a second seam, again from V-clip to opposite V-clip.

Pin the two remaining raw edges together in the same manner but leave a 5-10 cm opening along the inner curve, as shown in the photo below, for turning right side out and inserting the filler.

Make small cuts into the curves seams. 

Turn the cover right side out. Use a long, blunt-end tool, such as a chopstick, knitting needle or point turner, to gently round out all the curves. Pull the loops out into position at either end.

Stuff with filler until pleasingly plump but not so rock hard it’s uncomfortable.

hand stitch closed, using tiny stitches so the filler doesn’t poke out. We suggest a slip or ladder stitch
