Stadium Pillows

Stadium Pillows

diy stadium pillowsStadium pillows are a fantastic project for any troop of any age.  While my directions mention a football design, you can customize it for any sport and use any combination of colors to represent either professional, local teams or the girls’ school colors.  The project is designed to be glued together, but if your girls are older you could easily alter the directions to sew the seams of the stadium pillows instead of glue.

    These are super cute! Only the link to the pattern is no longer valid. Does anyone have the pattern?

  2. Hi Marcy,
    The pattern was for the football image, not for the sewing. It’s not 100% necessary but I did find these instructions for making a football out of paper that you could easily do with felt instead!
