I started by cutting a "house/barn" shape out of some red printed fabric. I used white ribbon to frame the barn doors. Once I had it all cut out I began to sew.
I sewed the "X" of the barn on first in white ribbon. Then I sewed the sides and top to frame the barn doors out.
I created a hay loft with some polka dot ribbon and used beige felt as hay. I used a zig zag stitch at the end of the ribbons to prevent fraying when washed. The hay was also zig zagged across with two lines to create the look of three hay bales.
Brown ribbon sewed on in the same fashion provided our little barn with a roof. While dreaming this pillow case up last night, I thought it would be more fun if it was interactive for my little man. Farm finger puppets became my solution! I cut some small pockets off some infant jeans my youngest had outgrown. I stitched them on top of the barn and stuffed our favorite farm finger puppets (I created these a long time ago) in the pockets.
They look so cute peeking out of the pockets! I hope my son sleeps tonight instead of playing with his pillow all night long!
