The FREE Unicorn Pillow (**affiliate link) pattern from Rebecca Page is definitely on trend because which child doesn’t love the fantasy world. My girls love unicorns so this month it was a no brainer of what to make for them.
I must admit I fabric shopped myself for this project, they had no say in what they were getting but I’m happy to report both gave me the thumbs up. I chose printed poplin milky way sparkle (100% cotton) for the main body, horn and outer ears, poly organza in pink (100% polyester) for the mane and some stash silver nylon/spandex (unknown exact composition) for the mane, inner ears and fringe. The silver spandex obviously was a stretch fabric so I interfaced it for the smaller pattern pieces but didn’t bother with the mane so that it could be gathered easily. They eyes I cut out of black felt and the nose from purple felt and blanket stitched them onto the face. My horn was embellished with a silver ribbon from my stash.
I did go rogue a bit with the mane because I was using sheer fabric, rather than cut two pieces and sew them along the long edge. I cut my strip double the width and folded it in half because I didn’t want a visible seam.
I’m happy to report that the excitement was high when these were gifted to the kids. Now back to sewing for me again :).
Keep in mind you aren’t restricted to the pattern for this pillow, but by your imagination. Some people have sewn ponys, dragons and deers by being creative. These also make great gifts so I suggest you get sewing to fill up your present cupboards.
