I saw these pillows at the Renegade Craft Fair and thought they were so cute!  They are made by Good Bye Blue Monday.  I actually only saw the girl pillows and decided to make a boy version of the pillows as well.  Then I check the site yesterday and saw they had made a boy version with a mustache as well!!  Thought that was pretty funny. 

I hope you enjoy these adorable pillows.  I think they would make cute gifts and/or decorations for a bridal shower.

Step 2: Make and Cut Patterns

I drew this pattern myself.  I'm not going to include the pattern because part of the charm of these pillows is that they are all a little different.  So have fun in creating your own patterns.  Here are a few tips on how I made and cut mine.

Legs - about 8.5" long and curve at the bottom.  You will need to cut out 4 pieces for each pillow. 

Cloud - my cloud pattern is just 1/2 of the cloud.
  • Layer two pieces of fabric each a about 18"x18".
  • Folded the fabric diagonally in half (looks like a triangle)
  • Place the pattern on the fold of the fabric.
  • Instead of pinning the pattern to the fabric, I just pinned the fabric down at the edges and traced the pattern with a marker.
  • Leaving the pins in the fabric, remove the pattern and cut just inside of the marker line.  Now you have your two pattern pieces
