I've been on a sewing kick lately. Not complicated projects, but several smaller ones.
I love new pillows but I don't like the price of the ones I usually want.
I bought this fabric last summer when it was on sale.
I love the pastorial scene.
For my pillow project I am using a 18x18 down filled pillow form.
I cut one panel for the front of my pillow.
I cut it 18" by 18" for a snug fit.
You will need two panels for the back. I used a navy cotton that I had on hand. Cut one panel the width of your pillow and add 6 inches. For mine it is 18 + 6 for a total of 24". Cut the length the same as your pillow. Then cut the piece in half.
Make a fold on the length of your fabric, about a half inch and iron.
Do this for both pieces.
Then sew each panel along the fold.
Now your ready to pin your pieces, right sides together.
One panel will overlap the other in the center.
Then sew close to the edges around the entire outside of the pillow.
Now iron, trim your edges and turn your pillow case right side out.
It will look like this.
Insert your pillow and ..
there you have it! I made two, cutting the panels from different sections of the fabric.
Not hard at all.
Soon you can be whipping up all kinds of pillows.
I am going to start working on some Christmas ones next.
And pillowcases for my grand-daughters too.
Here is one I made for Addison.
And I just finished one for Calista as well.
Take care friends,
