Materials Needed:

  • 3/4 yard of gray wool fabric
  • ruler
  • marker
  • sharp scissors
  • fuzzy white yarn
  • white cotton all-purpose thread
  • dark gray cotton all-purpose thread
  • pins
  • sewing machine
  • all-purpose needle
  • 18" x 18" pillow insert
  • plastic spiders (optional)

Measure and Cut Fabric

Using a ruler and a marker, measure and mark two 18-1/2" x 18-1/2" squares of wool fabric (Image 1). Cut out both squares with sharp scissors (Image 2).

Tack Yarn in Place

String three pieces of white fuzzy yarn across a piece of fabric that will be the pillow front, and arrange them so they are crossed in the middle (Image 1). With a sewing needle and all-purpose white thread, tack yarn into place at the pillow's edges and center point (Images 2 and 3).

Create Web

Starting at the outside and working toward the middle, create a web by tacking yarn into place at each intersection. Continue all the way to center of web, and trim excess yarn. Tack down any yarn pieces that are not lying flat against the wool.
