Carolina Manufacturing Halloween Pieced Pillow
Frighten up your Halloween décor with a pillow!
- Time:1 hour
1Place the two pieces together right-side-in. After stitching them together you are going to be turning the pillow inside-out, so make sure you place together the sides that you want facing out in the end.
2Stitch together three sides of the pillow pieces. You can do this either by hand or with a sewing machine. The slip stitch is the best choice. Again, leave a half-inch seam allowance.
3Turn the pillow right-side-out. You should now see the sides of the fabric that you want facing out, formed into a pocket that you will fill with stuffing.
4Iron your pillow flat. (If your pillow has wrinkles when you stuff it, getting the wrinkles out may prove challenging.)
5Tuck a half-inch of fabric at the open edge inside the pillow and iron it flat. You are now ready to stuff and finish your pillow.
6Take your stuffing and push it into the open side of your pillow. Try to keep the stuffing evenly distributed as you go. Don't stop until your pillow is full and has no obvious areas of slack in its body.
7For chevron corners, cut 6-1/2 inch x 6-1/2 inch x 9-1/4 inch triangles from the Black and White chevron bandanna and sewn onto all 4 corners. Embellish by sewing gingham ribbon over seams where the 2 bandannas meet.
