basketball body pillow

Are you living in a house divided where one loves one team but another family member roots for another team? An awesome way to honor all of the favorite basketball teams in your household is by making this soft, fleece NBA Body Pillow. See the materials and instructions to how find out how easy it is to make your own!
Step 1

Project Note: One yard of 58"-60" wide fabric will make a pillow 10" round x 44" long.

Find a plate that is 11" in diameter. Use it to trace two circles near the short end of the fabric. Cut out the shapes.  

Step 2

Cut a piece of fabric that is 32½" wide x 45" long. 

Step 3

With right sides together, pin and sew a seam, with ½" seam allowance, down the long side of the rectangular piece of fabric, leaving about 7" open near the center. 

Step 4

With right sides together, pin the circular piece to the end of the tube of fabric. Sew with a ½" seam allowance. Do the same with the second circular piece on the opposite end. Trim and clip seams. 

Step 5

Turn the pillow right side out through the opening in the long seam.  

Step 6

Stuff the pillow to your desired firmness.  

Step 7
Sew the opening closed by hand.
