Terry Robles Pillow October 11th, 2018 - 01:25:02
Beautiful fringe throw pillows now you can make these any size but might have to be on a king-size bed. So I need three over European-style 25 by 25 pillows. So please join me I'll show you exactly how to do this start to fish. What I've done is I've taken the measurement of the pillow form and, in my case, it's 25 inches the 25 inches, I'm going to add an extra inch to it, because I'm going to go ahead and have 1/2 inch seam all the way around this existing square.
I can get two squares out of one width of fabric, so I'm going to purchase my 27 inches and then another 27 inches and then another 27 inches, because I'm making three pillows to go across the back of a king-size bed. So I have my fabric chosen from that point, like the pillow that I made before I had covered the cording with fabric, and I had inserted that. But now it's now this time around, I'm going to go ahead and get some brush fringe, and basically, what you buy is something that looks like this and there's a piece of very loosely tied thread at the bottom that you take off at the end. Whenever done and then you can really brush it out nicely and it will fluff out all the way around the circumference of that pillow.
So, basically, that's all you need pillow form fabric and some brush fringe and you're ready to go. Let's just talk about fabric choice for a second, whenever you're doing a pillow or some type of upholstery, usually you go ahead to the fabric store and you get upholstery fabric. This fabric is a linen, is rated for upholstery, but it's very, very thin, and so anytime, I'm in a situation like that I like to, interline the fabric before I go ahead and start putting all of my pieces together now. What is interlining is just a thin piece of flannel and what it does is it gives that that fabric an extra little bit of body. So that way, it's not going to be pulling quite as much underneath it.
You know anybody that happens to be sitting or laying on it. So what I've done is I've taken that bit of inner lining and I've simply basted it to the backside of the fabric, and from this point, since this is done, I can go ahead and I can put the trim on all of the edges before I actually Sandwich that, together with the other finished piece, so so I've gone ahead. I've done that. I'm going to take my trim, I'm going to take it over to the Machine and basically all I'm going to do. Am I'm going to line it up along the edge and just baste it in place along that stitched portion of the existing trim? So let's try to visualize exactly what we're doing here and how you line up this trim.
You wouldn't sew it on like this, because, basically any time that you sew anything together, you sew fabric with right sides together to get a finished piece. If you sewed it on like this, it wouldn't turn out right. You wouldn't see it at all would be facing the inside of the pillow, so you need to make sure that's going to wind up inside the pillow and if you're going to be putting right sides together as you sew. Well then, when you turn it out, the turn will be on the right side so that the concept behind that the other concept is I'm working on the bottom side of the pillow and the bottom side of the pillow. You can choose anywhere on that edge to align this up with I'm going to do mine right about here right around the corner, just to show you really quick how to go ahead and stitch this, so this is in place now you'll see.
Hopefully, if I'm close here, this is sewn on as like little loops, and all you wanted to make that turn at the corner is you're going to be slicing in between those little loops. So you line that up with your scissors and give it a clip. So I'm going to do that right now and I'm going to clip it at the half inch point. So I'm going to measure about half an inch away from this edge, I'm going to clip that in right about there and I'm going to clip up until I can manipulate it just a little bit around that corner and get that in place really well and then set the needle in and then you're going to make the turn so you're going to turn your fabric toward you and then you're going to take this. This piece of trim and you're going to push it as far as you can into that.
