How to make a Teapot Pillow

Begin with a simple teapot shape. This can be sized larger or smaller; you can put a gusset on the bottom to help it stand nicely on a chair or bed. As you can see, you can adjust the size of the gusset when you cut the pattern.
The handle is a "C", allow for 1/4" seams. Decide on a wide or narrow handle. pin on batting face to face. Sew, turn, press and if you'd like, seam down the middle for interest. 
First place handle where you'd like it to be and then flip it over before you sew the teapot outer seam around.

You can see in the photo on the left and the one below that I have used lining. I chose to use lining because the fabric was a lighter weight. The lining will make the stuffing easier to shape.
After you have sewn around the outer teapot edge, sew the straight gusset bottom. Follow the Tea Carrier instructions to make the gusset and close the bottom. Trim the ends of the handle before turning and snip in the corners at the top knob and spout turn. 
Give the pillow and quick press and then stuff and fluff as you work. Pin and then sew closed the bottom seam. 
You may choose to decorate the pillow with lace, ribbons, buttons or something else of your choosing.
