Introduction: What Is the Pillow-Pack
Are you ever going somewhere where you want/need a pillow, like a friends house or traveling? Are you also annoyed of carrying bags of clothes or supplies? Well now you can make something to fix those problems, I introduce to you the Pillow-Pack, the Pillow that works as a comfortable pillow and a bag to hold your stuff. It is easy to carry, works great, lasts for years (I made one 3 years ago and it still works), and your hand are not full anymore!
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies
You are going to need:
1. A felt/cloth that is 22 inches by 32 inches.
2. A felt/cloth that is 22 inches by 64 inches.
3. A needle for sewing
4. A sowing machine
5. Thread that matches your felt/cloth
6. Some sort of strap/Rope that is 1.5-2 inches by about 50 inches (some extra will be needed)
7. A roll of Painter's Tape
8. Clear tape
Step 2: Making the Pillow-Pack
On the 22 inches by 64 inches fold the two 22inches sides in so that there is 3 inches on of the felt as shown in the picture. Sow the top and bottoms down (two lines on each works best).
Step 3: Step 2
On the 22 inches by 32 inches do the same thing that you did on the 22 inches by 64 inches on only one side this time.
Step 4: Step 3
Fold the 22 by 64 inches in half so that the inside (normally white) is on the outside and sew all the edges besides the one that was already sown. When sowing it sow close to the edge but not too close.
Step 5: Step 4
Take what you did in step 3 and flip it inside out to the pattern is on the outside. lay the 22 by 32 inches felt on top of the bag looking thing that you have made, so that the white side is on the bag thing. Make it so the folded over sides are on all the same sides. Sew the 22 by 32 on to the 22 by 64 on all sides besides the folded part.
Step 6: Step 5
On the rope cut two squares and tape it with painter tape all around.
Step 7: Step 6
On the strap part of the rop take clear tape and tape the ends (strap can be as long as you want so that it goes corner to opposite corner). In the side that you want to be the bag stick one of the painter tape squares in the bottom and on the outside put one of the clear tap ends touching it so that you then sew them together multiple times. the do the same thing in the opposite corner.
Step 8: Step 7
Enjoy your Pillow-Pack
