Making a cone shaped "pillow"
I am usually posting on the Holiday Forum, but thought this might be the best place to get my questions answered.
Originally, I saw this little felt tree on Pinterest. Perfect for my 1-1/2 year old granddaughter.
When I went to look for it again, I did a search and came across this one.
I'd prefer to make the 3D one, but I have the funny feeling it might be more difficult than it looks.
If I could find a pattern, I could always enlarge it, but I've had no luck.
1. Do you have any suggestions about sewing a large, cone-shaped pillow?
Surely, I must sew the cone first, stuff it, and then the bottom - right?
2. Is there something special I do to keep the sides from being lumpy when I stuff it? Do you think it might be made with a heavy fabric first and then covered in felt?
3. What is the best material to use to stuff it? (I'm looking for something inexpensive, if possible.)
4. Any general thoughts?
Any tips you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
