I finally put together a tutorial of the pillows I showed you a few weeks ago. They are so simple to make. I looked for the perfect floral FOR. E. VER. and finally gave up the search. The colors I wanted were impossible to find or the pattern looked like Grandma's couch. I found a fuschia and burgandy pattern that I liked.
I had a 18 inch pillow insert. I don't like for the pillow case to be loose so I cut my fabric 1 inch smaller than the form. So for an 18 inch pillow form I cut two 17 in squares of fabric.
The most important step is to iron everything. I ironed the two squares and then ironed a half inch seam on one side of each.
Put together the right sides and the ironed seams together
Sew a half inch seam on each side except for the one with the ironed seam.
Clip the corners so it will be neat when you invert it.
|Sorry for the terrible picture.|
Flip the pillow case inside out. I use a pen or pencil to push the corners out and then put in the pillow form.
Pin together the bottom and sew, this time I used a 1/4 inch seam.
And you are done!
Once you get the hang of it, it only takes a few minutes to whip one up.
