I admit and guilty for being so irregular(I know!! Again),it doesnt mean I was a couch potato…I was busy doing some renovation in Aleeza room along with daily house routine.Her birthday is in coming week and she is going to be 11 this year Masha Allah.Time passed so fast,it looks like we brought our first baby home for the first time.She is growing so her needs are changing too…she is not baby but she is still in glitter and glue.
Her size got change so often,I dont have any one younger (doll )who can use her beautiful dresses and feel some times(often) I spend too much on her clothes and she uses once and a while.I love this dress she got it as a gift from her khala (so its a kind of her sentimental asset )and she only used 2-3 times as its summer dresss and sadly we only have few months to use them.Every year I have tons of their clothes to recycle or donate,try my best not to waste any thing in anyways.I was dressing her bed up and I thought to use different pillows and cushion to make it accent.The lumber or body pillow is longer than average pillow and sleek rectangular in shape.
Lets make it together,its a beginner version.
You can use any cotton dress or skirt of roughly atleast has 35″×16″ size (2 pieces of same rectangular sized) fabric when you cut it.
Decorative Lace/pom pom/Ribbon etc etc .
Measure the desire size and cut the fabric in two pieces with same size.I wanted to use pom pom lace but couldn’t find at that time.I used this cute shabby chic lace and attached it to the fabric with sewing machine.All you need is basic sewing skills.
Use lace in between and stitch with sewing machine. If you are not expect like me,use clothes pins.All you need is stitch in a straight line or can even go little zigzag like me (lol) Don’t underestimate your sewing skills just make sure it is stitched. You can make first a simple cover for filing but I insert filling directly because Aleeza uses her stuff gently,if it got dirty I will toss it in a washer (Tip: When you put pillows and comforter in your dryer after a wash,Add 3 tennis ball inside the dryer to keep them in shape).
Stitch three side and leave it open so we can insert filling inside.Just make sure you fill it up all the way from top to bottom.I used almost three standard cushions size cotton filling to make this lumber pillow.
Close the open side with hand or sewing machine. Tara!!Ready to enjoy for a cozy nap…!!
