How To Make DIY Body Pillow -:
Here’s what Leisha from ‘Homemade Toast’ says you will need. Apparently, her DIY Body Pillow cost her about $12, what a bargain!
Here’s what you’ll need:
(two) 50-inch (or 54-inch for the tall pattern!) x 30-inch pieces of fabric A
(six) 3-inch x 40-inch (44-inch for tall!) strips of coordinating fabric B (optional – to give it a little more height)
(two) 2-inch x 25-inch strips of fabric B (optional)
(one) 24-inch (+/-) zipper (optional)
Leisha also says that you can deconstruct your existing Pillows and use the filling for stuffing. It’s a great way to recycle those old pillows that are taking up room in the back of the cupboard! You can find all the finer details at the following link.
