If you don't know how to sew, don't worry you don't necessarily need to.
Step 1: What you need
- light grey fabric for the pillows (You can of course use finished ones, but bear in mind that if you are planning to applique with a sewing machine it is going to be harder) The amount of fabric you need depends on the size of the pillows you are planning to make.
- stuffing (if you want to make the pillows yourself)
- zippers (optinal)
- green, blue, red and black fabric (The amount you need depends on the size of your pillows, just take a look at the next step)
- thread in the above colours (optional)
- fusible web e.g. Heat N Bond or Steam a Seam 2 (I've used Steam a Seam 2, because it was easier for me to get)
- at least one audio recording and playing device (check out the second picture)
- litz wire
- a push-button
- hot glue
- Duct Tape
- something to house your device in (I've used an Altoids tin, but if you have something that is not conductive, you should use it)
- a plastic container (take a look at step five)
- Velcro (optional)
- fusible interfacing (optional)
- sewing machine (optional)
- soldering iron
Step 2: Design templates
In order to open it you need inkscape (amazing freeware tool). If you don't have it, you can download it here: www.inkscape.org/download/
The proportion between the grey background and the numbers/ the flag is the original one. So just scale the pictures according to your pillow size.
