For this easy-peasy DIY, you need:

  • a pillow (for example “GRANTA” from ikea)
  • a pillow case of the colour you want (I took “GURLI” from ikea)
  • some colored wool
  • a large sewing needle
  • scissors
  • a paper sheet with the pattern you want (I drew a star myself, but you also can print a shape or a writing you like and use it a s a pattern)
  • pins

Begin by pinning the pattern on the backside of the pillow case. Then sew the pattern on the pillow case with back stitches, so the nice side of your stitches are on the frontside of the pillow case. Once the pattern is completed, tear the paper sheet with the pattern. Turn the pillow case over, fill it with the pillow. It’s done!

For fancier pillow case, you can sew an other pattern (or the same) on the other side.
