Kids King Pillow CoversJuly 11, 2017 / byAnna Graham / Categories : Feeds
Yess! Bring on the fun and simple summer projects please!!! I don’t think I’ll ever tire of a simple and useful sewing project like these king size pillow covers for my kids. It was actually their idea, which is a nice twist. Natalie had hers for quite a while with a different cover, but Emily was able to make use of a king size pillow that I had stored away. I can’t even remember what I had bought it for, but it was nice to have it on hand.
I think this makes such a great gift for kids and I’m storing it away at the back of my mind for the next birthday party my girls get invited to. It’s of course not as big as a body pillow (which is kind of nicer in my opinion) and still makes for a great pillow to read or get cozy with, especially for kids! The other part is that it takes so little time and just a few supplies so that makes it super friendly for gifting and fun for kids to help with or even make on their own with a little supervision.
So we sifted through my stash and found the cutest prints. It was definitely the best part! We came up with all kinds of options and then finally decided on these. Aren’t they so cute?! Lucky for me I always keep a few invisible zippers on hand. I buy mine from Zipit on etsy but you can always pick one up at your local craft store. What’s really a game changer is having a invisible zipper foot. For just a few bucks you can have perfect invisible zips every time, no joke. Many years ago I followed Sew Katie Did’s invisible zip tutorial which I definitely recommend. I’ve done so many now that I’m sure I have my own little tricks and twists and am happy to show my kids, too. We had a great time sewing them up and I’m sure we’ll be making more soon!

Welcome back for the last day of the Lander sewalong. I am so excited to finish these up and see all of your versions. Let’s get started. Step 20 – First thing we are going to do is baste the side seams and check for fit. To create a basting stitch, all you need to do is lengthen your stitch length as far as it goes so that it’s easy to unpick if need be. Flip the back pant around so that the right side of the back and right side of the front are touching. Line up the side seams and pin. Baste at a 1” seam allowance. The 1″ seam allowance gives you lots of wiggle room in case you need to let it out a bit around the hip etc… Try the pants on, and adjust as necessary. Make sure that you pin the fly closed when you try them on to get an accurate idea of fit once the buttons are on. You may also want to try them on inside out so that you can easily pin the areas you want to adjust. (The seam allowance at the waist must stay at 1” so […]read more
