DIY – sew reading bones with a free pattern

Hannah Dahle


I'm Hannah and I'm glad you're here!
In this sewing tutorial I'll show you how you can sew a cozy reading bone quickly and easily. Reading bones are incredibly comfortable and they look cute.

I have sewn the reading bone myself several times and given it away to friends and family. So you get a very clear sewing recommendation from me here. However, the reading bone is not only great to use, it is also extremely easy to sew and is therefore suitable for absolute sewing beginners.

My free sewing pattern

You can get my free pattern  here Download and print out on a DinA4 sheet.

  • What materials you need

For the reading bone you need

  • Up to three non-stretch fabrics
  • My pattern
  • A pair of fabric scissors
  • Pins
  • A sewing machine
  • Craft cotton for the filling
  • needle and thread

Make yourself comfortable

You will read this section in every one of my posts because it is particularly close to my heart. In addition to the sewing itself, my focus when producing the videos is primarily on us having a good time together. I want to encourage you to make yourself really comfortable and tackle the project in Muse. Maybe you want to make some tea, prepare a snack, light candles… Whatever it is that makes you feel safe and calm, incorporate it into your sewing routine.

My first textile collection

In the video you can see the fabrics from my first, own textile collection “ Dream Worlds ”, which I was able to design together with our Linen Lodge.

All fabrics are made of 100% cotton and are perfectly color coordinated so that you can combine them wildly with each other.

If you're interested, take a look Here , in the linen manufactory shop, please take a closer look.
