Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Peanut Pillow site with Peanut Pillow pattern and Peanut Pillow tutorial. This Peanut Pillow site with Peanut Pillow pattern and Peanut Pillow instructions is a SON-sational idea for those seeking to make a Peanut Pillow from Christians who wish to share their Christian Crafts with you. This Peanut Pillow project is fun to do with easy step by step instructions and a Peanut Pillow is a great project for a young seamstress and those with limited experience. This Peanut Pillow craft project is also inexpensive which is so important for many Christians during these difficult economic times. Of course this is a FREE Peanut Pillow pattern. Check out some of the Christian Crafts within this Christianity Oasis Christian members Christian Crafts website.

This Peanut Pillow pattern and tutorial website was inspired by Proverbs 31:13, which is a Bible verse describing some of the qualities of a virtuous woman.

"She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands."

Peanut Pillow 

A peanut pillow is a very handy little thing. It's an absolute must for children traveling by car because a peanut pillow hardly takes up any room whether it's in use or not. If you travel long distances, a peanut pillow of your own would be so much better than the public pillows that may (or may not) be available. And does it seem that every time you start to doze in the recliner, you wish you had just a little something to support your neck? A peanut pillow is the answer!

Materials you will need: 

Sewing Machine

Pins

Scissors

⅔ yard of Fabric

Thread

Polyfil

Hand Sewing Needle

Print the Pattern

Please read Step 1 before downloading.

The finished dimensions of this peanut pillow measure approximately 12" long and 5½" in diameter.

Step 1.  The peanut pillow pattern fits on one piece of standard or A4 copy paper. Print TWO copies of the pattern. The pattern is one half of the peanut shape. Tape the two halves together on the straight edge to make a full peanut shaped pattern piece.

Note: The sewing instructions for the peanut pillow are not included on the pattern itself.

Peanut Pillow Pattern - Step 1

This is what the Peanut Pillow Pattern download looks like.

Customizing the Loop

Step 2.  The loop on the peanut pillow is optional. You could always omit the loop if you don't need or want one on your peanut pillow. If you will not be using a loop on your peanut pillow, proceed to Step 3. If you will be using the loop on your peanut pillow to carry it, you will want to adjust the length of the loop so that it comfortably fits on your hand or over your wrist, depending on how you will carry it.

For a hand held loop, measure the circumference of the palm of your hand, from inside your thumb to the outside of your hand below your pinky, all the way around to the inside of your thumb again. Add 1" to this measurement so it is easy to slip on and off your hand, plus 1/2" (which will be for two ¼" seam allowances). See example in the Photo Gallery above.

For a loop that will be used on your wrist, measure the circumference of the widest part of your hand. Add 1" to this measurement so it is easy to slip on and off your hand, plus ½" (which will be for two ¼" seam allowances). See example in the Photo Gallery above.

Cutting the Fabric

Step 3.  This pattern allows for ¼ inch seams. The seam allowance is already figured into the pattern, so there is no need to adjust the peanut shaped piece or add any seam allowance to it. Lay out your pattern with the arrows along the straight grain of fabric. Cut 4 of the peanut shaped pattern piece and 1 of the loop handle.

Tip:  If you have a pattern that you use often, try cutting it out of a strong quality paper towel. The paper towel is easily pinned through onto your fabric because of its flexibility and it doesn't rip so easily as paper does when pinned through repeatedly for multiple uses.

Sewing the Peanut Pillow

Step 4.  Starting with the loop, fold the fabric lengthwise, right sides together, and stitch a ¼" seam, locking your stitching at the beginning and at the end of the seam. Finger press the seam open with your fingernail. To finger press, simply lay the seam open on a flat surface and scrape your fingernail on the opened seam as you would to crease a piece of paper. This doesn't press the seam open as well as an iron, but works sufficiently for this purpose.

Step 5.  Turn the loop right side out and iron flat with the seam in the center. Top stitch two rows of stitching, along the length of the loop, one third of the way in from each edge. Use whatever stitch length you desire.

Step 6.  With right sides together, pin two of the peanut shaped pieces of fabric together along one long side. Stitch a ¼" seam, locking your stitching at the beginning and at the end of the seam. Repeat with the other two peanut shaped pieces.

Step 7.  Fold the loop in half, raw edges together, with the seam on the inside of the loop. Baste the loop to one half of the pillow where the seam is on the right side of the fabric.

Step 8.  Now you should have two halves of your pillow that look sort of like canoes when opened up. Pin these halves, right sides together, all the way around, matching seams and if including a loop on your peanut pillow, it should be inside the two layers of fabric at this point.

Step 9.  Starting on one long edge, leaving a 2" opening (so you can stuff your peanut pillow with Poly-Fil or your choice of fiberfill), stitch a ¼" seam all the way around the pillow (except for the 2" opening), locking your stitching at the beginning and at the end of the seam.  Tip:  If you leave your thread long at the end of your stitching you can use this thread to close the opening after stuffing.

Step 10.  Carefully and gently turn the peanut pillow right side out and bring the thread to the outside that you left for sewing the opening closed. If you accidentally clipped the thread, you can just knot a piece of thread and close the opening in Step 12 as you would to hand sew anything else with a simple knot at the end.

Step 11.  Stuff the peanut pillow with Poly-Fil or your choice of fiberfill. You can stuff your peanut pillow to whatever firmness you like.

Step 12.  Blind stitch the opening of your peanut pillow closed by hand sewing with a needle and thread.
