French country pillow. I'm going to take my seam gauge and because it does measure as 5/8ths, I'm just going to do a dashed line. All the way down this side. And then you're going to do the dashed line across this side as well. Then after you've done your dashed line, you're going to measure 10 inches on one side from this seam over here and then 16. On the other side. When you're done, it should look like this with 10 inches on the shorter side and then 16 inches on the other side. Once you're done with that, then you can add 5/8ths to the two sides that don't have it yet. When you're done it should look like this. And then you can cut off the excess paper. So similar to last time.
I'm going to put the name on there, I'm just going to call it. And as a pillow has two sides. I will once again write. And just like last time, I added the grain line. And when you're done, your pattern should look like this. Be sure to wash and iron your fabric before putting it on a surface so that it can be cut. Remember to cut at about 1 inch in and then tear. And then cut and tear down this side as well. After you've torn it. It should look like this on both sides. After you've ironed. It lay the right-side facing up. And just like last time, pull the fabric over so that it can fit your pattern. Once you've placed your pattern, start pinning the grain line and then all the way around the seams.
If you're done pinning the grain line, seam start and finish of the pattern you can move on to tracing. And just as a reminder before you trace, have it between the fabric and the pattern and have the color side facing down. Go ahead and cut out the Pattern but remember that this is where the seam is, and then this is where you want it cut out—you, don't want to cut it out on the seam. Once you're done, pinning your fabric all the way around then you're ready to start stitching.
