Art club kids really enjoyed making emoji pillows. I did a similar project a couple years ago with art club but it was a lit smaller and more difficult to sew. This time around, instead of felt, we used Smart-Fab crafting fabric. It was so easy to work with and it is so soft! I traced out giant circles on yellow fabric for the students to cut out and sew together.
Once they finished sewing their circles together (with a little bit left open) they flipped it inside out and used cotton fluff to stuff. They they sewed the gap closed and designed their emoji.
Red, black, blue, and white fabric was used for the details. It was super easy to glue together with regular ol’ school glue.
These turned out great! I liked the process and product for this project. The kids felt empowered to learn how to sew and create their very own pillow. It was a new skill for most and I am very proud of all of their hard work and perseverance. Way to go art club!
