Step 8: Make pillow pocket
At this point, fold the blanket long ways into three sections and then fold that two times to figure out the measurements for the pillow. You can fold it a couple of different ways and if you look up “quillow” on the internet there’s a lot of great tutorials out there, but I found that if I folded it this way it gave me the shape I wanted which was a smaller version of the big Tardis design on the blanket. The size of the finished pillow I made was about 12” x 24” so the beginning fabric was cut a little bigger than that. Cut a rectangle of black fleece that will fit slightly bigger than your folded blanket. Fold one of the edges of one of the short ends over and sew it down to so it will have a nice finish.
Now cut out a mini Tardis from the small piece of blue fleece and little windows and dark blue squares. I don’t have measurements because I just went off of what looked nice. For the door sign on the mini Tardis I just drew a few lines with the fabric crayon since from a distance words look like lines. Just like the large Tardis, I glued the different sections on and then I sewed them down. One difference is I used a quilting trick where you cut away a bit of the back fabric to reduce the bulk, I did this by cutting a bit of the blue fabric away that was behind the dark blue squares. This is a little tricky because you want to only cut the blue fabric and not the dark blue. When it’s all sewn together you can sew it onto the black pillow pocket, make sure the top is the edge you folded over and sewed down.
