Pillow I Made Over The Weekend

pillow i made

I made this pillow with my mom over the weekend. I haven't sewn in years. She taught how to add the piping to the edge too. The pillow looks a bit lumpy because I think the cushion is a little to big. I have to keep practicing. I'm excited to make some new Spring pillows for our sofa and bed.

  8. I love the fabric! And I've yet to try adding piping to the edge of one of my pillows, so I'm very impressed. Moms are the best teachers.

  9. I knew someone was going to ask where the fabric was from, shoot. I remember getting it at Purl Soho a few years ago. The name was not on the small piece I had. Sorry guys. I have a whole box of fabric I have collected over the years.

  11. Well done, all you need is a bigger inner. General rule of thumb make your cover 2" smaller than your inner; e.g 18" cushion, 20" inner.

    Good luck with your sewing projects; I haven't sewed for many years I'm sure I'd be completely rubbish now!

  12. Great job! I haven't sewn in years either but I got a sewing machine like a month ago...however-it's still in the box! I need some motivation to tackle my first project and seeing this is inspiring!
