Ninjago Pillowcase

Some of you are going to love this (or at least your sons are) and others of you are going to have no idea what this even is. In my family, this is a bit of an obsession.

Ninjago Pillowcase Pattern

That (for those of you who don’t know) would be a Ninjago pillowcase. Jay to be exact. Ninjago is Lego’s latest and greatest (or do they have a new one by now?) and it has been very near and dear to several of my children’s hearts in the last year.

For my 4 year old’s birthday back in January I decided to make him a Ninjago pillowcase, which he loved, so I thought I might as well share my idea with the Ninjago loving world.

Very easy to make and you could do any color for any of the ninjas.

What You Need:
1 yard of fabric in background color
Small amounts of yellow, white and black fabric
Iron on transfer paper

Start out by cutting your fabric for the pillowcase, but don’t sew it yet.

A typical pillowcase is 20″ x 32″ so cut yours about 21″ x 38″ (you’ll be folding the top down twice, so you need about 6 extra inches there).

Cut out these pattern pieces

You need 1 yellow mask part, 2 white eyes, 2 black eyes and two eyebrows.

Iron your pieces onto the iron on transfer paper and then iron them in place on your pillowcase.

Do a tight zig zag stitch around each piece of the face. I also added the under eye shadow by just continuing my zig zag stitch on a little farther.

Sew the pillowcase together on the bottom and one side. Fold the top down about 3 inches and press, then again 3 more inches and press again. Sew around the top to finish the pillowcase and you are done.

    Adorable. I’m going to pin this and come back later so my oldest doesn’t see this and beg for his room theme to change—again!

    Awesome! My son loves Ninjago. He has a plain black t-shirt I’ve wanted to do something with for quite a while and this looks perfect for it! Thanks for sharing.

    So adorable & COOL, my grandson will love them. I’m sure we’ll have one of each color & I think may adapt it for a valance for curtains made from the Ninjago sheets.
