This is a quick and easy project.

Material List:

Stitched Project – Watermelon Thread Pack

Cloth for Back

Fiber Fill

Ribbon

 

Decide how large you would like your stitched area to be on your pillow and add 1/2 inch. I place a pin at the point that I will need to trim to and count the number of linen threads from my stitching to the pin. Count the same number of threads from each side of your stitching and place another pin. This is the linen thread you want to trim along to get your pillow center.

 

Cut a square from your cloth for the back that is the same size as your pillow front.

Sew the two sides together, with right sides together, leaving a small opening along the bottom.

Turn the pillow right side out, use something pointed, but not sharp to help get the corners turned all the way out. I use a chopstick.

When you have the pillow all the way turned, press it one last time to remove the wrinkles that occurred with stuffing and turning.

Stuff your pillow with fiberfill. I used the chopstick again to help get the stuffing into the corners.

Remember: use extra caution when pressing projects stitched with hand-dyed fibers!

Slip stitch the opening closed. When you pressed your pillow after you turned it you created a nice crease along the edges to help you know where to stitch.

Attach bow, since there are plenty of fibers to stitch this one twice, make one for yourself and one to give away!
