Handmade pillows

During December teachers and kids in the After-school program were doing the unique handmade pillows for the Christmas Fair.
First the fabric was bought and cut into square and rectangular equal sizes. Letters were cut for the designs, stencils were made and kids could finally start writing with fabric markers and colours.
Kids got some stencils, placed them on the pillows and started colouring. When the colours got dry, teachers ironed them and teacher Lucija sewed the sides together. Finally, all the kids stuffed the pillows with the sponge and cotton filler mixed together and the pillows were ready for the Fair.
All the kids enjoyed doing their own pillows so do not forget to check out the gallery below to see the whole process.
