The best gift is the one that will bemade by own hands. He retains the features and opportunities, as well as pleasant memories of the giving person. Therefore, we will be doubly more interested in preparing a fabulous and interesting gift to a loved one. Owl-pillow for the New Year Pillow - it would seem, the most common thing that every person has in the house. This item is used most of the time of the person, because many of us only sleep with their favorite pillows! Give your loved one your own! Make such a pillow is not difficult, and its features and appearance will preserve the traditions of the holiday and each time to remind you that you made a special and unique toy. Our first work will be connected with the creation ofpads in the form of an Owl with your own hands. Pillows will have a special zipper on the bottom seam. Also, special materials that you might need during your work are needed: For sewing such work we need a fabric in two material solutions. Prepare cotton in order to make an external pillowcase, as well as a teak to decorate the inner cushion. Teak is a variant of a dense fabric from a cotton covering with which help it is possible to sew covers for pillows or a mattress. In addition, you should initially think about the preparation of fasteners in the form of lightning, as well as the material of colorful felt, in order to fulfill the shape of the face, or the muzzle of an owl. Pick up also the materials of the tissues of the threads so that they are in the tone of the material. It will take a sintepon to stuff a pillow. To fix the product, it will come in handy as abases for gluing - adhesive for textiles. Also, take a scrap of leather in an artificial form. You will need scissors, a simple pencil and paper to create a pattern. Sew the pillow. Choose the size of the pillow. Our version is 40x40 centimeters for the whole craft. Using a regular newspaper, prepare the shape of the square in the required size to cut out our pattern. The process of pattern design begins: it is necessary to prepare contour options for the pillow of the future variant, producing the bumps. It is necessary to determine immediately where the nose and eyes of our owl will be. The variant with the newspaper is for those who do not havespecial paper. It is advisable to prepare a variant of graph paper and, of course, a special paper for creation. Do not forget that the lower seam will be fixed with a bolt of lightning. Therefore, for the bottom line of the pillow, it is necessary to draw an even version, not curved. Then, it is necessary to cut out the details using the main fabric, as well as the fabric for the napernik. Do not forget that you need to leave allowances for the seam. Next, from the felt you need to make a cutout for the eyes, and then for the nose of our future owl. Then, we make an overlay on the top part of a pillow, we make smetting. We make sewing with the help of a dense seam of the form "zig-zag". Then, take a small flap of leatherette in order to cut out the eyelashes for the future owl. They need to be glued to the pillow with a textile glue. Lightning and sewing To sew up a zipper, it is necessary to make allowances of the bottom edge of blanks with the help of a highlighter. Also, you can use the zigzag seam, or the seam of a conventional typewriter. After, it is necessary to bend the product on the side of the wrong side. One part of the lightning is sewn in such a way that the edges of the fabric cover the denticles by 50%, slightly covering them. Then, the second element of the zipper is also sewn in the same way. Lightning thus hides behind the seams of the lower type. Then, the details of the pillow must be folded to the inside of the face and then sewed along the contour using a regular straight line. Particular attention is paid to making accurate insertion of the lateral part of the seam using the place for connection with the zipper. Cut the seam allowances using a distance close to the line. The seams of the front side must be carefully laid out. They are also processed with the help of an overlock. Legs of an owl In order to form the legs of an owl,it is necessary to prepare patterns on a fabric basis. To do this, cut out four pieces to fold them in pairs. Use the front side in the inside. Then, it is necessary to sew on the contour of the product, leave it on the bottom edge in an unclosed shape. The allowances must be cut using a distance close to the line. We will turn the legs on the front part, iron it and make a line on the contour line, then it needs to be processed with an uninhabited bottom, on the overlock. It is necessary to pin the pillow over the face of the product, over the zipper. Then, the legs must be sewn and tucked down, re-stitched. The legs will be ready. If you need to make the legs of an owl longer and longer, you can make them with a sintepon the right volume. In order for the legs to be firm, we make reinforcement on the inside. We use non-woven, or any other gasket on the glue. Similarly, a pillowcase for the second article is sewn in the form of an owl. For the appearance of the toy, you can independently develop additional elements. The seam allowance inside can also be processed with an overlock. Then, the pillow is stuffed with a sintepon, and the hole is sewn with the help of a hand-seam over the edges. We stretch the pillowcases on the ready pillow, zip fasten. We make a bow in the form of a satin ribbon.
