No-Sew Lion Pillow

Posted on May 24, 2013 by Shawna Chandler | 0 comments

As I was adding old t-shirts to the donation pile this project sprang into my mind.  Like most of the other projects I tackle many of the supplies are probably already in your home and it only takes about an hour to complete.  

Here's what you need:
- old t-shirt
- scissors
- pins
- fabric paint or acrylic paint and or a sharpie marker
- chalk or pencil
- fiber fill (although you could cut up the remaining pieces of t-shirt and use them as filler instead)

With chalk or a pencil draw two concentric circles on your t-shirt with the smaller circle being at least 2" inside the larger.   Place a few pins into your t-shirt to hold both sides together while you cut out around the larger circle.  

Now take one of the layers and add the face of your lion in the smaller of the concentric circles.  After the paint is dry, pin the two layers together and cut into the circle to make fringe all around the face.    Tie the fringe together leaving a few inches open to stuff your lion.  Once it's as full of stuffing as you'd like tie up those last few fringes.  You're done!
