Hello my friends. It has been a great week learning How To Sew A Ruffled Pillow.
Today I want to show YOU How To Sew A Ruffled Pillow.
If you aren’t into making your own pillow, did you know that Online Fabric Store NOW sells their own pillows?
If you haven’t ever visited OFS, you should. Your eyes will be filled with fabric eye candy for hours.
Starting out with a 16×16 pillow form, I measured my fabric at 18×18. This measurement allows for seams and “puffiness” from the pillow.
Before I sewed each side together, I tore strips of fabric to make ruffles.
Each strip was 2 1/2 inches wide. I like the torn edges, so there was no need to sew the edges. BUT, you can if you want.
Using a wide stitch, I gathered my ruffles right down the center of each torn strip.
After they were gathered, I carefully pinned them to my pillow fabric, making sure they were straight.
I sewed the strips on right where I had the gathered seam. (Down the middle)
Four ruffled strips would sit perfectly on my pillow.
Voila!! My new pillow!
I am really happy with my fabric and my lovely pillow as an accessory.
I am glad I chose Waverly Bits and Pieces SeaGlassFabric. It blends well with our home decor.
I LOVE my fabric and how my pillow turned out.
