Cassandra King Pillow November 03rd, 2018 - 08:28:20
Today we are doing one of my favorite DIYs. I've ever seen on the internet, it's from a blog called Francois. You walk and it is a lumbar pillow made from a table runner at Target. She took a table runner from Target and turned it into a pillow. Is such an awesome idea, link to the original post will be below so you can check out what a real DIY person guys, but in the meantime, why don't you watch this video and we can make it together supplies you need for this craft are table runner I'll put the link below so you can buy, it sewing. Skinner'S thread sewing things, sewing machine, insert picture of sewing machine here, measuring tape and something you can stuff the pillow in this could be feathers.
This could be fiberfill. Whatever floats your pillow boat, so table runners are long because they go down the whole entire table. So what you're gonna do to make the face is cut up part of the beginning of the table, runner and part of the end of the table. Runner and a place where they look good together, gonna be your pillow face, and it should not measure longer than 33 inches, always remember when you're cutting fabric that you need to allow a little bit of space just so the stuff together. This is called a seam allowance. You'Re gonna want, like a 3/4 inch seam allowance on this. Once you have cut these two pieces, you are going to put them together with the faces facing into each other and then pin the edge and you're gonna sell.
This edge together and when you open it that is going to be your pillow face and on your face, you should have fringe on each side of the pillow, see fringe free edge friend. Now, then, you have the front of your lumbar pillow. You need to make the back part of your lumbar pillow. Take the rest of your runner to make sure it matches up like flies to the front, with a little bit of extra seam allowance and then slap these two things together inside out, pin the top edge and the bottom edge and then sew them. These are the long edges soon. So the long edges - I am really bad at sewing machines.
Take that add a little cold medicine and you know that might be more difficult than it needed to be so once you've sewed those two things together, you are going to turn it inside out and then iron it flat. Now you have basically a long tube and this part should be open, and this part is all sewn and ironed flat. We'Re going to close one end so that we that's the pillow you're gon na take that little extra fabric you had and fold it in towards the inside of the pillow and then pin this shut. Then you are going to take a needle and thread and you are going to whip stitch, huh whip stitch. It closed once your edges all closed you're, going to start stuffing your pillow, because there's gon na be only one more side, open, so stuff, your pillow through that side and make sure it's really stuff. Yodas is really soft. Go ahead once you're dead stuff in this sucker, you are gon na.
