Lucky Dog! Wrap Pillow

Create a homemade pillow for your favorite four-legged friend.
What You Need

  • Denim or twill (white, rose)
  • Prequilted fabrics (blue, yellow, olive)
  • Fabric paints
  • Piping
  • Stamps: Hydrangea, mum, gerbera, daisy, kalanchoe

  1. For the dog cushion cover, mix squares of white denim and
    prequilted fabrics. First cut the denim and prequilted fabrics into 7-1/2-inch squares, which includes 1/2-inch seam allowances.
  2. Stamp the denim squares, using a different paint color for each kind of flower. Create a layered look by overlapping the stamps, letting each layer dry before applying the next.
  3. Work on a covered surface, and let some of the stamps overlap the edges of the denim. Sew enough squares together to cover the top of the cushion, and add a bright border.

    Note: If you aren't re-covering an existing dog bed, consider using a worn sofa cushion. Or cover large slabs of foam with thick quilt batting for the base.
  4. From prequilted fabric, cut a bottom to match the pieced top, and cut and piece a boxing strip (for the sides).
