Navy velvet pillows, there's no sewing involved at all you're going to need fabric glue. I was given the speed so to try out so that's what I'll be using. It needs to be applied with a toothpick, so I'll have some of those too and a lid from a water bottle to squirt the glue into. I found this really pretty gold velvet on e bay, but you could use pretty much any fabric. You, like I'll, put a link in the description box below where you can download my star pattern.
It prints out into four pieces, so you'll also need tape to put it together or you can just draw your own star, but I design mine to be exactly the right size that you'll be able to get two pillows out of one yard of fabric you're. Also going to need scissors, pins and stuffing, which I forgot to take a picture of but I'll put, links to everything I'm using in the description box below so the first thing you're going to do is print out the star pattern and cut out all the pieces And put them together, so it looks like this and tape. Everything together now fold your fabric in half, so you can cut two stars at once and the pattern in place and then cut it out. Now you can remove all the pins and we're going to put the pieces together so that the right sides are touching or you could have cut it with right sides together to begin with. I don't know why I didn't think of that and now we're ready to start gluing.
I ended up putting down wax paper because I realized the glue eats through the fabric a little bit and I didn't want it to get on my table so just apply your glue to the very edge of the fabric and then fold the top piece down press Down a little bit just to make sure it sticks together, work your way around the entire star with the glue, and you want to make sure that you leave a little section, not glue that way. You can stuff it later make sure you give the glue plenty of time to dry. I think I gave mine about three hours, but it depends on the glue that you're using now you can turn it right-side out through the hole that you left you I used.
My scissors, to help with each of the points and now you're ready to step it. I stuffed each of the points first and then filled in the middle.I found that it's best to use really small bits of stuffing because it makes it less lumpy. It's going to be a little lumpy anyway, unfortunately, but if that bothers you, you could always use crushed velvet instead, I think that would probably hide it a little better. Now we just have to glue the hole shut. This part was really hard for me to do in front of the camera. Unfortunately, but what I did was fold the edges in and pin it shut.
