This pillow top or we can make that pillow top so let's unroll this and get started. When you take your strips out of the roll, you sometimes have to iron them, so that they're flat and you might want to iron that fold right there. That came from when it was on the bolt, so once you've got them nice and flat. If they can't get wrinkled while they're rolled up we're gonna take these over to the cutting board, and this is the order I'm going to have them in this order right here, but the black one. We're want less wide.
So, let's take that over here we want the black one and a half inches. The rest of these are two and a half's. We want the black one, one and a half so anytime. I am going to cut down a strip from a jelly-roll. You can see if it lines up really straight on your board. You can simply cut one inch off of this side if you're not sure, it's really really straight then cut a little bit off of each side to make sure that it's accurate I've got two sets.
Five strips in each one and I'm going to sew them in order like this they're gonna be a long strip, sets we're gonna sew them all side by side. So we'll start with this guide and we'll put this one right next to it, we're going to use a quarter inch seam and I'm gonna use a fairly small stitch length. We want to open this up and we're going to finger press the seam allowance to one side, and it really helps if you finger press this right now, because it's hard to iron, these open unless they're finger pressed first.
So I'm just opening it with the palm of my hands and drawing me I'm using my fingernail. You can use your fingertip just a little bit to get it flat. The next strip is going to go on the right side and I'm just going to sew it all the way down then take the next strip and the next strip we're going to use the same procedure on all of these.
