A grey lumbar throw pillow the process of creating a lumbar pillow is almost exactly the same as that of a standard, throw pillow. Let's get started and show you how it's done. This is the chair that the lumbar pillow will rest in, and here you can see we're taking a measurement, it's 21 inches, we'll be making our very own pillow, insert and stuffing it ourselves and we'll be making the pillow cover out of decorative fabric.
So we need to cut those two pieces of fabric to size for our particular lumbar pillow, we're measuring on the spun-bonded pillow protector fabric, that's available from sailrite and here's how we came up with our measurements, to cut out both the pillow insert fabric and also The decorative fabric for both the pillow insert and the pillow cover we're going to be making it out of one piece of fabric, that's folded in half.
So, instead of having to make two plates one for the back side and one for the front side, we just have one plate that folds in half, once we've marked on the fabric, the appropriate size to cut, we just cut the spun-bonded pillow protector fabric with Scissors going back to the chair, we measured for a pillow, that's 21 inches wide, but we like ours to be a little bit full, so we're going to make our 24 and typically lumbar pillows are around 12 inches in height.
So here are the calculations for our cutouts. If you have your own pillow form or if you want to buy one, you can do that, but we're making our own pillow form or pillow insert out of this spun bonded material.
Next, we'll measure our decorative fabric material and mark it to the appropriate size for our lumbar pillow we're going to use the sailrite edge hot knife to cut the fabric. This will prevent the unraveling of the fabric. Using a hot knife on cotton fabric is not recommended.
You'll find hundreds of fabrics to choose from at the sailrite website that is great for throw pillows and lumbar pillows, whether that be indoors or outdoors. The same principles used to make a lumbar pillow are used to make a standard throw pillow. The only difference is the measuring of the fabric, which is more square rather than rectangular, to make the pillow insert or sometimes referred to as a pillow form we'll take that fabric.
