Kids Sewing Project: Make Emoji Pillows

In last weeks After School Sewing Class here in Aldie, Virginia we taught the girls how to make Emoji pillows!

Here is some inspiration to make one of your own.  The best part is you can really make this any size and any emotion!



  • yellow cotton flannel, fleece or felt (our circle was about 12.5 by 12.5 inches)
  • red, pink, black, white felt squares/scraps for the faces
  • posterboard if you wish to pre-cut patterns for the kids  (see photo)
  • sewing supplies:  pins, fabric scissors, sewing machine or needle/thread to hand sew the emoji pillow
  • poly fiber fill
  • hot glue gun (for gluing on faces) unless you wish to pre sew on the face www.cupcakesandlace.combefore sewing the two yellow circle together

Make It:

  1. Start by cutting out your circle with the yellow fabric.  We used yellow cotton flannel and made our emoji about 12.5 by 12.5.
  2. Pin your two pieces right sides together and sew around the circle by leave about a 5 inch opening so you stuff it!
  3. Stuff your emoji pillow with poly fiber
