Peak Hour Pillows

Have you guys entered to win $25 to expressions vinyl yet? If not, go here to do so!!

After I finished up the quilts for my boy’s room, I had a few extra scraps so I whipped up some really fun pillow cases and decorative pillows for their beds. I call them their peak hour pillows since I used the Peak Hour Fabric line from Riley Blake to make them.

I use 3/4 yard of fabric to make my pillowcases. I bought some red and yellow cotton fabric at Hobby Lobby (since I knew I would not have enough fabric) and sewed the peak hour ends on.  I cut the red and yellow parts to be 27” and then cut the peak hour ends at 12” so I could fold the ends over and sew them about 4 inches down so the raw edge is inside the pillow.

For the orange polka dot pillow I simply cut the fabric a half and inch larger than my pillow to allow for seam allowance and then sewed them together leaving the bottom open a bit so I could insert the pillow and then hand-stitched it up! Easy Peasy!

I had a bunch of odds and ends scrap pieces so I cut them into strips and sewed a few together to make the fronts of the striped pillows. I backed them in orange fabric and then sewed the front and back together with right-sides together, flipped it right-side out, inserted my pillow and hand-stitched it up! You can find a tutorial here. I love the striped pillows because they add a fun aspect to the bed.

And yes… I made a couple extra so Zachary can have some when he is out of his crib!
