I made this adorable Cars Lightning McQueen for Malakai. He’s been obsessed since Cars 3 was released. This Cars Pillow is even easy and fun to put together for your
Disney Pixar Cars obsessed boy or girl. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
Disney Cars came out last year with their third instalment of the series. I don’t know if it’ll be the last and I’m kind of hopeful it’s not. It is a little played out but I’ll still see it and Malakai will watch it all.day.long. This DIY Cars Pillow was perfect for him to lay his head down and turn on the movies.
- Cars Fabric (12″ wide)
- Black Fabric (12″ wide)
- Cricut Maker
- Lightning McQueen Cricut Design Space File
- Sewing Machine
- Black Thread
- Iron-On Vinyl in Yellow, Red and White
If you can see in the picture above, I have no black Iron-On Vinyl on the DIY Cars Pillow. I used the black fabric as the black color and I saved some money because I didn’t need to buy that color. Begin by cutting out your fabric with the Cricut Maker. You’ll cut one black circle and 2 black rectangles that you’ll sew together to make one long strip.
After you’ve cut your black circle, place the Iron-On Vinyl. Us your EasyPress or Iron and start with the red. Next, line up your yellow bolts and then lay the white on the top. Use a towel or a protective mat to protect your red and yellow HTV as you press the others.
Cut the other circle with your Cars patterned fabric. You don’t have to use Cars fabric but it’s just an added bonus. Pin your black strip to one of the circles and then sew the ends of the strip together when they meet. Now sew one of the circles to the side strip. You will now sew the second circle to the side strip. Leave an opening about 4 inches wide and then stuff with filler. Hand stitch the pillow closed. So easy and it’s such a fun Disney Cars craft.
