I love sprucing up my home with fun pops of fall color! What better way to bring in a little fall-ish color than some candy corn pillows! These pillows are super easy to sew and make up very quickly!
All you need to make your own candy corn pillows is some fabric scraps, a sewing machine and some stuffing 🙂
Here’s what you need:
2 of each: White, yellow and orange scrap fabrics 6 inches wide and at least 8″ long for the white, 12″ for the yellow and 16″ for the orange.
Pillow Stuffing / Poly-fil
Step 1. Sew your strips of fabric together. White on top, yellow in the middle, orange on the bottom. If they are different lengths, be sure to center the shorter on the longer one. Repeat for the second side.
Step 2. Fold one of the sewing together pieces in half. Pin the seams on top of each other to hold them in place.
Step 3. Shape the piece into a “corn” – Basically a triangle with very round corners.
Step 4. Lay the shaped piece, patterned side down, on top of the second piece. Match up the seams and pin in place.
Step 5. Starting at the bottom, stitch a 1/4 inch seam around the shaped piece, leaving a 2-3 inch gap for turning and stuffing. Trim and turn.
Step 6. Stuff your candy corn pillow and stitch the bottom hole closed.
And you’re done! Add your candy corn pillows to your couch, front porch, or anywhere else you could use a little fall flair and squishy comfort!
