Miss Lottie’s new-ish house isn’t nearly as soft and comfy as her old strawberry was 🙁 So I set about making it a bit more awesome by making a little mattress she could sleep on in the bottom. I’ve tried putting blankets and regular pillows in but she just shoves them to the back >_<

Anyway the end result was really cute!

For this tutorial you will need:

  • Fabric
  • Lace
  • Stuffing
  • Needle and thread or a sewing machine
Measure out enough fabric for the pillow and cut two pieces.
Now put the fabric with the good sides together and then place a piece of lace between them along where the seam will be
Stitch along that line making sure you’re going through the edge of the lace as well.
When you open it back out the lace should poke out like this:
Continue all the way around the edge leaving a little gap at the end.
Poke your fingers inside the gap…
And turn the whole thing inside out.
Fill the pillow with stuffing.
And then close up the hole.
Now stitch diagonally through the pillow:
And then diagonally the other way so it forms diamonds.
And that’s it, all done!
So cute! And a perfect fit for her new house.
Of course, that doesn’t stop her from sleeping everywhere else… like on my plate -_-‘
Oh Lottie.
