DIY: Stackable Burger Pillow


You might recall the no-sew burger costume I made for Halloween last year. Well, I decided to make something similar this weekend but this time I actually dragged my sewing machine out of the closet. I saw a burger pillow while I was out shopping recently and thought about buying it for a second until I realized I could easily make one. Want to make your own? Here's how!

What you'll need...

  • 1 yard light brown fabric
  • 1/2 yard yellow fabric
  • 1/2 yard green fabric
  • 1/2 yard dark brown fabric
  • 1/8 yard white (or off-white) felt
  • 1 bag of poly-fil

Start by cutting all of the pieces you'll need. You'll need four circles of the light brown fabric, two circles of the dark brown, two wavy circles of the green, and two squares of the yellow fabric. Each circle should be about 16 inches in diameter. I flipped a stool upside down and traced it on the fabric using chalk. 

Make a small teardrop shaped pattern and use it to cut sesame seeds using your small piece of felt. Sew those on to one of the light brown circles.

Start by sewing your top bun. Make sure your sesame seeds are inside. Remember to leave a small opening. Now sew all of your other matching pieces and flip them so they're right side out.

Once all of your pieces are complete, stuff each one with poly-fil and sew the openings. Stack your burger and enjoy!

    1. I would make them just like the buns (circles) but use red and maybe purple for the onion. That would be cute! :)

    1. This was so long ago that I can't remember now but I always keep a large (32 oz) bag of poly-fil around for projects and I probably didn't use the whole bag.
