Staci Mcguire Pillow November 13th, 2018 - 03:08:56
To make boho pillow. So to get started, you're going to need a stick, needle that we're going to use for the hand, embroidery you'll also need a couple different types of trimming which you can find at your local craft store. These are just some ones that I chose to go with equal to me and look of the pillow you'll also need two different colors of yarn and two different types of fabric, so one is going to be for the face which I use the light hand color One and then one of them be for the fact of a decorative part, which I use with denim now. You'll need some simple things like scissors, a ruler and, of course, your pillow. So once you get all that you're going to take your face fabric and cut a rectangle of 18 by 44 inches, then take your second fabric and I actually ended up flipping mine over for a lighter Hwanhee but you're going to cut a rectangle 18 by 8. Inches for your second pattern, once you do that you're going to cut three pieces of your trimming to 18 inches, then I take a ruler and I mark the middle points of my pattern, piece which is four inches, and so I just mark that straight across, which Is going to help me in a bit when I add my trim in then, you want to flip it over to the side that you're not going to use and draw a line up one inch from the bottom and also the top, and then we're going to Use this line as a guide for when we fold in the edges, as you're folding in the edges, make sure that you're pinning them so that they stay in place and also make sure that you're putting them in the same directions that you have no trouble keeping them out, as you're sewing once you have everything, pin just flip it back over to the right side and place your main trim piece in the middle, where you marked it and just start pinning it and then take your other tools, trimming pieces and place them to the slide of it - and I did it about like an inch to an inch and a half away, then you're, going to take the entire piece to your sewing machine and just go down all of the trimmings and all the wispy top and bottom ten.
I really didn't feel the need to record this part because it just seemed like really boring and there's me a lot of sewing stuff anyways try to use a thread that will match Germany or the trimmings that you've got once you have all that folds down you're Going to kind of choose the color of yarn that you want to see the mean color of the rotary, then you're going to cut four pieces that are 40 inches long. I chose the dark blue that I felt would bring out the blue. The denim then, with your second color of yarn mine, is a cream color you're going to cut two pieces of 40 inches long then thread your needle. Then I took one of the pieces of the blue yarn. I fold it in half and place it between two. The trimming and then took my needle and went from the bottom above the yarn and then back to the bottom and then you're going to want to tie a knot so that your embroidery doesn't clip on. When you pull it. So then, just pull it through and continue the process of going from the bottom above the yard and then back to the bottom. Then each stitch. I did it about an inch apart just continue stitching until you get to the bottom and then you're going to repeat that with the remaining pieces of yarn after you finish, each embroidery make sure that you kind knot At the end so didn't come loose and if you're wondering where the brown embroidery came from that was kind of my original plan and then I just said I wasn't feeling it, and so I switched it to blue.
Then you can just clean it up a little bit and cut off the excess yarn. Moving on from the decorative part to the base of the pillow, we're going to draw some guidelines for ourselves and one and a half inches and another add one inch, and this is going to be on the short side of the pattern piece. So then, we're going to fold down to the first line at 1 inch and then we're going to fold again the second line at one and a half inches and then we're going to pin it all the way up. Miska near hem on both sides, once it's all, pinned you're, going to sew a straight stitch and then repeat it on the opposite side. Then take the piece that you've just sewn and wrap it around your pillow in a way where the ends are basically centered in the back of your pillow and then measure the overlap about five and a half inches then lift out your pillow and then recreate the overlap that you just measured so for me it was five and a half inches and then you're going to flip it over and take the decorative piece that we finished and place it directly in the middle. Then you're going to open up your flaps. So that you can pin down the decorative piece to just the top layer and then once it looks good you're going to fill it on all four sides. So once you finish that we're going to fold it back up against it this time inside out and just check that it's symmetrical because then we're going to complete the pillowcase by showing both the top and the bottom, so yeah once you're done sewing.
