This instructable came about from looking for old sweaters for this brimmed beanie instructable. I found my old Pokemon pillow and decided it would make a decent bag.
I still play Pokemon. You should too. :D
- An old pillow
- fabric to cover the inside of the bag
- needle/sewing machine
- measuring tape/ruler (optional)
- seam ripper (optional)
- D-rings, O-rings, square rings (optional for strap)
- Strap(s) or belt(s) (optional for strap)
Total time: About 2 and a half hours.
Step 1: Find A Pillow
Pillows with a screenprinted or dyed design work best. Make sure the pillow you want to use isn't a family heirloom or something like that, or you may seriously regret making it into a bag. As long as the pillow fabric isn't too threadbare or delicate, it should work for making a bag out of.
