Make a round throw pillow the best pillow cover material for fade, resistant, stain resistance, and durability is Sunbrella furniture fabric. We're gonna make around circular pillow out of one of our square forms with the spun poly. That's inside it's easy enough to make a round pillow out of the square one because it's just so soft you can do just about anything with it. So what we're going to do is fill it with a 20 by 20 and that's the actual cover this on here. To get our measurements, we'll just use two-yard sticks and that'll give us an accurate measurement of exactly what we need sixteen inches. So it's measuring 16 and you need an inch rear seam half an inch all the way around. So what we're going to do is have our circle at 17, inches. Okay, we're going to make our circle and what I've done is drilled holes into a ruler so that I can just set my Center. We need a 17-inch circle, so we need to go eight and a half from the one we put it at nine and half of our 17 inches. Diameter is eight and a half, it reads nine and a half because our pinholes it on the one-inch mark on the ruler. You could also use a string to make this circle we're going to use the professional hot knife here to help prevent the edges of fabric from unraveling. You could use pinking shears and you could use regular shears. You can just expect the Sunbrella fabric to unravel slightly. Okay, we have our two seventeen inch diameter circles cut and now we're going to cut three-inch strips to go around the outside edge to create a ruffle and to do that, we want it three inches wide and then we're going to fold it over and sew.
This edge and make it in two and a half inch overall cut b23. When making around throat pillow the edges aren't totally flat that is a little bit puckered. So you can hide that fact by creating a ruffle around the edge of the round, throw pillow, and you really probably want the circumference of your circle. Probably at least three times length of the circumference and we'll sew these together into ends create one straight long. In order to create three times the length of the circumference, we're going to have to join these three strips together, some of the fabrics out there have an outside surface and an inside surface you want the outside surface is to be facing each other as you join. These strips together we'll sew this straight stitch about a half inch from the edge of the material reversing at the beginning and the end do that to all your strips okay, so as you're going along. What I do is just pinch up about a half an inch hold it over go so far. Pinkies up there really isn't any order. To this I mean, if you want it to be that perfect, you can go ahead and measure up to each one of those go around the edges. Go up! okay, now we're putting this back on. As I said, we ran that on this side. So we put this up right to the edge okay. Now, while you're seeing it on the first piece, you want to just stay kind of close to that same stitch that you have because now we're going to put the additional piece over top at our half an inch.
So that it will cover up all these stitches here, you can go in a little bit deeper. You just don't want to take it in you're, clear, your half-inch that you have okay, so now we're getting toward the end. My view is just going to clip that open Turk in the raw edge brings this down. We've got a fleet. That's going to land in that same spot. Do the same thing open it up, but the raw edges in over them take our other circle. Put it right, on top of there now we're going to need - Oh, probably 10, to 12 inches here, open or our pillow form to stuff in and then we'll have to sew it from the outside. After that, so I want to run a mark. Oh just kind of guess going straight across here: maybe a foot enough to smash the pillow up into a form. Okay, so we're gonna go ahead and start here. Mark, I'm gonna throw this in happen. We're going to cover up - and you can pin these also if you need to keep it in secure with kids, I'm not moving on you. Okay, make them up to the other mark them in here back there and you've got this opening here. Okay, I'll take this out now turn the door, I doubt ruffle around the edge and then what we're going to have to do now is our opening is, I chose going to stuff in there and you want to just kind of make a half inch crease. It's going to kind of give you an edge to go by because once we get the pillow form in there, you're going to have to bring that down just over your stitches and then we're going to sew on the outside edge of it. And you want to squish it together, you put the corner up in first just kind of feed it in as you go once you get it all in there, and this isn't very hard at all.
The forms are really soft. You just want to make sure that you pull the pillow form in the there's edges. You can kind of feel this edge of the pillow and you kind of want that at the edge of your cover. So it's kind of going around the pillows like so, and we're going to take our half-inch push that pillow up in there a little bit and we're going to start back here where it's already sewn, and then we can pull our half-inch down and sew it. So, where it's already stitched down put that up under the foot so that it's right at the edge of your center foot, you can take about a half an inch, bring it over the stitches that are there, bring them overuse the center of your foot fold over 1/2 inch over half inch, okay and there you have your finished little bit of ruffle. If you'd like to dress up your round pillow, you could install button forms. We'll show you that next, okay, we're gonna, take a piece of our fabric, that we have a runner, the outside of the pillow and we're going to make a pillow form out of it. Deb meant to say button form.
The first thing you do is make it two inches by two-inch square, we're using the striping fabric. Of course, you can use anything that you want we're going to cut out too because we obviously need a button form for both sides of the pillow, but every opposite side. First, get'em defend those little bugs. There are teeth all around this button and by pressing the fabric into the teeth they temporarily will hold the fabric in place. You can see deb do it here. These snap together button forms, do take a little bit of time in patience, but the results are gorgeous. Now take the back, that's concluded with the button form place it over the fabric and then press you may need to use a screwdriver to lock it into place even there. Obviously, we have to do the same procedure to the second button for the opposite side of the pillow, we're using Sailrite's pre-waxed twine, but you could just use any standard heavy-duty twine your hands together and forth through your needle. This is longer than a typical hand. Needle Sailrite sells them in an assortment package if you need those hey center of your pillow, your needle coming through the other, oh, that in tight, give a kind of a twist okay. We have the one button in just slide the needle right through the other button.
