This adorable little pillow is a breeze to make and would be a lovely gift for someone special. Each corner is sweetly puckered, just like a kiss.
Here's a quick How To.
You will need:
1. 1/2 yd. (30.5cm) total light to medium weight fabric. (I used a different fabric for my front and back, but you can surely use the same fabric.)
2. tape measure
5. dental floss (or other thin, strong string)
6. polyester fiber fill
Cut out two rectangles of fabric. My rectangles measured approx. 17 in. X 11 in. (43.2cm X 17.9cm), but you can make it bigger if you'd like.
If you'd like to embellish the pillow with bits of doilies or lace, or whatever pleases you, now is the time to do it.
Once you have finished your embellishments, place your rectangles right sides together. Pin and stitch, using a 1/2 in. seam (1.3cm). Leave a 5 in. opening in the center of the bottom seam for turning and stuffing.
Measure and mark approx. 2 in. (5cm) in from each corner point and wrap and tie securely with dental floss or thin, strong string of your choice. Don't use a string that will be too bulky, or your "kiss" won't look as nice.
After you've tied all four corners, turn pillow right side out and stuff with polyester fiber fill until firm. Turn in raw edges and slip-stitch opening closed.
And there you have it - one Kissing Corners Pillow!
Hope you enjoy!
