Introduction: DIY Spirited Away No-Face Pillow

About: Hello, my name is Auroris. Every day we have the opportunity to learn new things, to rethink tired processes, and to improve the way we work.

Hi friends!
In this tutorial I want to share with you "Spirited Away" animated Japanese movie inspired idea - No Face Small Decorative Pillow/Cushion.

Upgrade your Halloween home decor with this The Dark spirit who devours other spirits and absorbs their emotions, causing him to take on their attitudes, especially negative ones.

Step 1: What You’ll Need:

  • Black and White Felt
  • Fabric - 2 squares 30x30cm (12x12 inches)
  • All purpose Black and White thread
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Printed template on A4 paper

Step 2: Cut Out

Using the pattern cut out all black and white felt pieces

Step 3: Hand Stitching

1. Work with "Susuwatari" (soot sprites), sew the eyes

2. "No Face" - stitch spirit's face separately (it's easier)

3. Stitch the face with the base

4. Take one piece of fabric. Place your applique in the middle and stitch around the edge

5,6. Fix small parts very well, because felt is fragile

Step 4: Sewing

Pin both pieces together (face to face).
Then sew all the way around the edges, but leave open a 3 inch area at bottom to fill with pillow stuffing. Back stitch at the beginning and end.

Step 5: Stuffing

Turn with right face on and iron the pillowcase.
Stuff as evenly as possible until you’ve reached the desired fullness. You can use a pencil to fill the corners.

Than hand sew the opening part.
