Shark Body Pillow – Pillow pets are popular, we have one store-bought little one and my child likes to place on it and analyze or haul it around by the tail. The choice of creatures is rather modest, so I decided to create my own! My whale shark body pillow design having written instructions and accompanying pictures to demonstrate the steps. This is an easy pattern, the toughest section is functioning with Minky that’s a slick fabric, but should you truly feel comfortable using this you will not have any trouble producing this specific whale shark.
This routine will show to you the way you’re able to earn a good sweet whale shark body cushion. Make it is to get a small, adorable friend or expand as big as you need using the additional instructions for sprucing a blueprint. This pillow is great for people that adore the cult film Jaws, the sea, shark body pillow week, along with mad badass or funny sharks such as Left Shark in the Super Bowl. Show some love for this amazing monster with this sea wave routine with shark fins which are dangerously near.

How to Knit Shark Body Pillow:

- Twist or clip along with your head & tail pieces, right sides together (RST), and then sew with a 3/8″ seam allowance around the outside, leaving open. Walking foot is useful to maintain the layers together because you can sew. Snip curves and flip right-side out. Materials the tail firmly in addition to the head gently with poly-fill and baste the openings shut.
- Twist every rectangle at half length-wise and sew either side together with 1/4″ seam allowance, which makes one short end available. Trim seam allowance and trim corner, then flip out the side. Sew Velcro on in the closed end.

(Please ignore that the minky pillow foundation has not been fully trimmed yet, it was an oversight after I was taking photographs!)

Place the outer two magnets two ″ from every border and also the next ring 8″ in the borders. Position the loop-Velcro straps facing, putting on the inside of the pillow using precisely the exact identical space. Baste along the boundaries of each strap. Optional: use tape to maintain the finish lying right.
