|My Silhoutte Pillow|
I have had this idea in my head for a while...and finally just decided to do get it done. With minimal sewing and cutting skills, even the most novice sewer can accomplish it.
A pillow form
A piece of burlap
A piece of drop cloth (I have a lot of scraps from various projects)
Rick-rack (ribbon, or cording would work as well)
A printed out Silhouette of your choice aproximate size 5 X 7 (would keep it a fairly simple silhouette)
(You can find them online, or if you have a good one of a family member it would be much more personal)
pin the silhouette to the felt
Cut out the silhouette
|Don't worry I ironed the burlap after I snapped the pic:)|
Center the Silhouette on burlap (I used a temporary spray adhesive, but you can pin it as well.)
|sorry for the blurry pic, you can kind of see the image|
|Close up of what the stitch should look like.|
Tack the silhouette down with a simple in and out stitch (I don't know the official term for this stitch) But I just went in and out where the long stitch is on the other side of the fabric.
Now just sew the pillow like you normally would. I didn't take pictures of this process, but if you need to know how to sew a pillow, there are a TON of great tutorials online.
There are so many ways you could customize this pillow...with ruffle trim, with a colored or geometric fabric on the back, with flange, etc, etc.
Happy Hump Day!
