Sewing a Pillow
Cut 17x13 rectangles out of the material you are using. If you

Example of right side on bottom and wrong
sides of material on top.
Start in one corner and stitch to the end. Don't forget to do your
backward stitch after the first few stitches and at the end. Take
off machine and cut the threads. Sew the next side and stitch to the
end. Do three sides leaving a short end open. Turn pillow right side
out. Stuff with batting or stuffing.

Teddy Bear Sleeping Bag and Pillow
by Kayleigh Capps (Mt. Juliet, TN, USA)
To make a sleeping bag for your Teddy Bear, take a piece of
fabric 1-2 inches longer and wider than your bear. Round the
corners on one end. Take another sheet of fabric 1-2 inches
shorter than the bear and the same width as the other sheet. Hand
kids sewing projects for more pillow projects.
To make a pillow, take 2 sheets of fabric bigger than your bear's
head. Hand sew together and stuff with left over fabric.
