Candy Corn Pillow

So You Think You Can Cook will be taking on the Candy Corn theme leading up to Halloween this Thursday. I have been very excited about this theme and the week is finally here where I can show you what I’ve been up to.

I’m starting off with a sewing post. A pillow. This craft is incredibly simple, you only need 3 different fabrics. (I was able to find everything I needed out of my stash.) And you only need to sew 5 seams!

Here’s the How-To for a Candy Corn Pillow:

Note: My pillow form is 14×14″.

Cut fabric. You will need 2 3 1/2 x 15″ rectangles of white fabric, 2 7 1/2 x 15″ rectangles of orange fabric, and 2 5 1/2 x 15″ rectangles of yellow fabric.

Your finished squares should be 15×15″, sew on a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Attach white to orange and orange to yellow. When you press each square, iron the seams in opposite directions.

Put right sides together. Pin. Leave a 4″ gap on the yellow edge of the pillow. Sew all around the pillow, keeping that gap, with a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Pull pillow inside out. Poke out the corners. Iron the unsewn 1/4″ flat on each side of the gap.

Stuff your new pillow case with your pillow form.

Close up the gap with your preferred method: hand sewing, buttons, Velcro, machine sewing, etc.
