52 Pillows – #22 – The Ten-Minute Pillow

Baby’s napping. Never know how long she’ll sleep… My son’s been wanting a fuzzy purple pillow… I have had the instructions for “The Ten-Minute Pillow” for, I don’t know, 7 years or more, so today seems like a good time to put them to the test…

Ready…

Set…

Go!

4:13-4:16 Measure and cut the fabric (3 minutes)

4:17-4:22 Hem the short ends (including the time to change the needle and thread) (5 minutes)

4:27-4:36 Measure the overlap and underlap. (Realize in straying from the original instructions of making a 12×12 pillow, I’ve missed something and mine is too wide for the 14×14 pillow form I plan to use. I re-measure overlap and underlap, pin and serge. The serger gets hung up on the thick layers so I re-sew on my sewing machine.) (9 minutes)

4:37-4:38 Turn right side out and insert pillow form. Done! (1 minute)

Total: 18 minutes (but if you take away 8 minutes for my overlap/underlap mishap, I’m about at 10 minutes)

AND…. another happy customer! (Probably my happiest EVER!)

Try The Ten-Minute Pillow yourself and let me know how long it takes you. Here are the instructions, courtesy of Claire Schaefer and the Greater Phoenix Chapter of the American Sewing Guild.
