Here's another Easy Sewing Project.
To make one 18 inch pillow you'll need…
One piece of fabric measuring 18.5" x 18.5"
One piece of burlap fabric (printed with holiday phrase), measuring 18.5" x 18.5"
18 inch pillow form
Silhouette Cameo Machine
Self Adhesive Vinyl - any color
Acrylic Craft Paint
Thread, Scissors and Sewing Machine.
(Below: see example of the coordinating fabric on back of pillow)
You can find the instructions for painting burlap using Silhouette Cameo here.
After the paint has completely dried, place fabric with right sides facing each other.
Using 1/4" seam allowance, sew around three sides, leaving one side open.
Turn the fabric right side out.
Pull over the pillow form.
Scrunch up the pillow into the end opposite of opening.
Use straight pins to pin the bottom closed, turning it under 1/4" as if it is hemmed.
Then sew the bottom closed, using your sewing machine or hand-sew.
You might want to top stitch around the entire pillow if you used your machine to sew the bottom.
This creates a finished look.
The only difficult part is keeping the pillow form pushed out of the way of your seam.
Happy Holidays and Happy Sewing!
