Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew - one of my favorite sites - posted a tutorial on how to make these Sprocket Pillows. I really liked them and thought I would give them a go.
I have to say that I am so in love with the way that these pillows turned out. I used part of a Giddy layer cake by Sandy Gervais. I liked the fabric before hand, but as I sewed it together I was pleased with how well all the pieces, patterns, and colors blend together. For the sides and back I used a basic polka dot from a local fabric store.
It seems like mine turned out a little fatter than Allison's did, but I think they will make great floor cushions. With a kid that is always begging for us to" come on the floor with me," it makes for a nice place to rest the bottom. I can always make the middle band less wide and it would create a thinner pillow.
My kiddo loves them, and who would have guessed, so does the dog:) I looked over and there she was, lounging like it was the best thing that had ever happened to her. Poor, normally uncomfortable Nala.
