Materials Needed:

To craft this type of pillow you will need, 4 A4 paper sheets, sellotape, a pen or marker, a scissor, a sweatshirt, some pins, hot glue gun, needle, thread, pillow stuffing, a piece of cardboard, one circles object, another t-shirt in different shade, and some rubber bands.

How to Make:

  • Firstly, set 4 A4 sheets together with the help of sellotape and make a paw shape on the sheet with a pen or dark marker.
  • Now cut the paw shape out of the sheet to use as a template on your next stages.
  • Then, take your sweatshirt and set the shape over the shirt to cut out two pieces with similar measurements.
  • Set both pieces with some hot glue and sew them up by leaving a small space on one side, from where you can place in the stuffing for your pillow.
  • Now, insert as much stuffing inside the pillow base as you need and close the open part at the end.
  • Then, take the paw shaped sheet and separate the fingers from the claw with a scissor.
  • Place the claw on your pillow, set it precisely with some pins and make four finger spaces on the top of that claw with the help of a needle and some strings.
  • To do so, put the needle on one side and take out from another side. Then, tie a knot by joining two end loops, and cut out the extra string out of the pillow. This way, you should make 3 lines which will provide you four clear spaces of fingers.
  • When you are all done, unpin the claw-shaped sheet from the pillow and take it out.
  • After that, cut out the claw to get a smaller shape from it and use this one as a template on a cardboard piece.
  • Use your circle object on the cardboard piece as well to get four circle shaped pieces.
  • Then, take another t-shirt, which must have different shade from the first one.
  • Now, cut out 5 pieces from that t-shirt in the shape of your 5 parts of a paw.
  • Place one t-shirt piece, add some stuffing, set the suitable cardboard piece on it and then tie a rubber band with the excess parts.
  • After that, sew the whole thing up alongside the edges, cut the string and the knotted part away from your craft.
  • This way make all 5 parts of a paw in which one is the claw and the rest parts are the fingers.
  • After making all the parts accurately, set them on right places of your pillow with the help of hot glue gun and it all ready to use!
