Noemi Sharpe Pillow October 07th, 2018 - 22:15:44
The pillow that you'll be making for this pillow. I used one and a half yards of printed fabric for the cover and one and a half yards of plain tech, cotton fabric for the cushion itself and you'll see that my scissor here scissors here are really in need of sharpening. But you know they get the job done. Okay, once you have your desired form, you have will have to decide on where to live in the opening and you'll be sewing from the end of the opening. Until it's beginning all the way around my tip here is don't leave an opening on a bend or a corner.
It will be difficult to sew it shut afterwards for this project. You can use cherry pits or rice or any other grain that feels right to you. It really doesn't matter what matters is the feel of the grain. If you like the feel of rice and it molds perfectly to your taste, you can choose that or you can go for the Tirpitz, as I did on this project. Experiment fill out what you like and go for it, the tracing part isn't over. Yet if you're going with a free-form like, I am here, put the parts that you cut out for your cushion on the patterned fabric, and I would do that one side at a time and just trace it with a quarter of an inch seam allowance. Or if you are in the metric system like I am, I always go for one centimeter, but you can also go with a half of a centimeter.
If you really dare one side of the patterned fabric needs to be a tad bit longer than the other, because you will need them to overlap two sides, so you will get that envelope cushion effect. What you need to do is just trace your fabric of one side and make it a little bit longer at the end, and that's it you can cut it off and I will show you what to do next. Okay, once you have two sides, the one side that is longer from the patterned fabric needs to be cut in two. This way you can lay out your fabric and see where the overlapping needs to take place, and how much do you need to take in sewing? The ends of that fabric will be neat and the cushion itself should look polished. So now the next step.
You just need to fold the fabric and sew in a straight line, and then I will show you what the next okay. So before you sew everything together. The folded parts that you see right here and the folded and the pinned parts that you see me holding right now. You should sew them first and then pin everything together and you snip. The fabric of that is hanging off from the longer side and then do everything together, it's not really difficult. I think I explained it much more difficult than it is, and then you will have the pillowcase and I will show you how to sew the pillow next.
So for the pillow itself, I did the thing that explained to you at the beginning of the video I just sold from the end of the gap that I marked with my water-soluble marker and to the beginning of the gap, and now I'm just snipping off the Bulk of the fabric, but just be careful, so you won't snip in the thread and then you turn out to turn everything inside out.
So the part that you want to be on the outside will be on the outside and then fill it with cherry pits or rice or with whatever you want. I use the blunt side of my scissors, the handle of my scissors to help me straight everything up from the inside. So this is a little tip, but you can also take like a chopstick and it will do the same trick with corners. So, but don't pick something that's really sharp because it will go through the fabric.
