I saw these fun bat pillows over at one of my favorite craft blogs MADE. When I saw them I knew I had to make them. You see I have an obsession with pillows. I also love what Dana over at MADE did with the bats in her house. Such a cool idea. I might have to do that too...
Okay, so back to the pillows I love the bat ones she did and it also gave me some ideas to mix it up a bit. I love how she used all of the bright colors so I knew I wanted to stick with that.
Here is the first one I made. I used this bat template from Family Fun. I spaced them all equally and pinned them in place. I then stitched each bat down the middle. I wanted the bats to look floppy.
Family Fun. This pillow was also super easy to construct.
Dana used from Country Living. This pillow was super easy to do.
To do this all you need to do is add an extra 2 inches to the back piece so that it will over-lap in the back. My picture shows it open so you can see the pillow. With the added length in the back it actually stays closed.
