Rustic and Romantic Pillows~
I made these large pillows for the sofa for a winter look.
I used a french script fabric by Braemore and a roll of Michaels burlap ribbon.
This pillow cover was going to be quick and easy,
with no zippers~just stitched shut. Script text fabric and burlap
are both trending in a major way and this is an easy way to
get the look and not feel guilty later when it becomes passe~
these pillows will cost less than $20 for the pair.
Cut the burlap ribbon right down the middle and give yourself
enough ribbon to go around the edges
of the pillow with about 6 inches extra.
Super easy people~keep the right sides facing out and then fold
the burlap over the raw edges of the pillow and starting in a
bottom corner stitch it all together. Run your stitching line right
down the middle of the burlap ribbon so it catches the raw edge of the fabric.
This is going to give your pillow edge a flange effect.
When you get to a corner, make a miter by
folding it at an angle (google this if you don't get it!).
Stop a few inches after you get around your last corner.
Insert the pillow~then continue stitching, and enclose the pillow.
At the very end, trim off the burlap ribbon so
it has an extra inch or two and then turn it under,
and finish stitching. All done!
I loved how this pillow came out~literally took less
than 45 minutes to make these pillows.
You could hot glue burlap ribbon trim to an existing pillow
with text on it if you wanted to embellish it to get a more rustic look.
Very pretty~a rustic romantic look for my winter sofa.
Looking all perfect...
Ten minutes later look what I saw~
