Teen girls will love this simple Nascar themed sewing project. If your teenage daughter is a huge fan of Nascar, which has the largest growing fan population of any sport, then this simple sewing craft is a great way for her to create a Nascar theme pillow for her room.
To Make This Nascar Sewing Craft Your Teen Will Need:
- Fabric (options to be discussed)
- Sewing Machine
- Pillow Form
So, you have quite a few fabric options with this Nascar pillow sewing project. My personal favorite is to use a Nascar t-shirt and recycle it into a pillow. You can determine the best 2 squares of fabric and cut them out.
Focus on the number of your favorite driver and other fun details that will make your pillow pop.
Another idea is to create your own fabric. You can buy fabric in your favorite driver’s colors. Now, use stencil, rubber stamps with fabric ink, or simple fabric paint to paint on the car number.
You can also use fabric paint pens to outline this detail. Get creative here. You can recycle old sheets for free fabric or even any old clothes.
Now, measure your pillow form. These can come in many shapes and sizes but stick to a square pillow form for the easiest Nascar sewing craft for your teen.
Add 2 inches on to the length and width of the pillow cover. So, if your pillow is 8X8 inches, then cut out fabric to 10X10 inches.
Lay the front panel face up on your table. You can iron some fusible interfacing to the back if you are using a super lightweight fabric. Now, Top this off with the back panel face down on the fabric.
Sew along 3 sides with a ½ inch seam allowance. I like to leave most of the bottom open, but you can sew the corners and only leave an inch opening at the bottom. This will make the corners on your Nascar pillow craft look the best.
Now, turn the Nascar pillow sewing craft inside out. Poke out the corners using a pointy tool. Scissors work well, but avoid punching through or cutting through the corners.
Now, insert the pillow form. You can also simply stuff with pillow fluff from the craft store.
Fold the opening shut to create neat edges and simply sew shut. Use a thread that matches the fabric on your Nascar pillow and it will blend away!
Trim any thread ends and your Nascar pillow craft is finished.
