On several occasions, former Bubbler Artist-In-Residence, Bird Ross, went out into the community to work with Bubbler Teens in a series of sewing workshops. By far, the project that garnered the most excitement and never got old was making pillows. Pillows are a very simple and intimate object to create and can be given as a thoughtful gift or kept as a comforting object.
Create and cutout a design template.
Use the template to cutout your fabric.
Use a sewing machine to start attaching both sides of the pillow.
Stuff the pillow to your preferred firmness.
And finally, hand-sew the pillow shut on the final side.
And did we mention that due to Bird Ross working with these teen groups, some of the site staff have started their own pillow making companies with family members?!?
