Candy Corn Pillow

Welcome to the May Arts blog today! I’ve got a fun fall project to share! Who wouldn’t love a candy corn pillow to celebrate the season? 🙂

Candy Corn Pillow

It’s pretty simple, and uses limited supplies. I’ve used craft store felt- I had some I’d bought by the yard, but I cut it down to the sheet size for this project. Simply draw a candy corn shape- don’t worry about being perfect!!

Cut out 2 pieces the same size.

Here’s where the fun starts! Pic out your white, orange & yellow ribbon! I’ve used LOTS of different ribbons, but you could easily use some wide grosgrain, silk, or satin if you want to speed the process up!

I pinned my pieces into place in several areas.

I sewed them to the felt with coordinating thread.

WHITE:  1” sheer tinsel edge  1.5” double faced satin  5/8” chevron stripe  1.5” sheer wrinkled edge  ORANGE:  ¾” twill chevron stripe  5/8” sheer/ruffle edge  1.5” grosgrain  ½” solid wrinkled  ½” woven burlap  YELLOW:  3/8” double faced satin  5/8” textured lines  ¾” twill chevron stripe  ½” woven burlap  1.25” silk (sk30)  1” grosgrain ric rac

I pinned the right sides together.

I machine sewed them together, leaving room to stuff. I also trimmed the excess ribbon.

After I stuffed the pillow with poly-fill I hand-sewed it closed. 🙂
