Do you know you can find tutorials and free patterns on the internet for almost every sewing project imaginable? I used this very simple pillow tutorial from The Pleated Poppy.
It was a bit confusing to figure out... you have to attach the trim to the "right" side and sew the trim facing inward so that when you sew all the seams together, the pom poms will flip outward. Make sense? Here it is all pinned up... this the back of the pillow with the "wrong" side out.
And here is the finished product, front and back...
Not bad. I wish it fit a bit more snug though. And I'm not sure if the pom pom trim is supposed to look like that. Should the flat part of the trim be showing more or less? Anyone?
Maybe next time I'll try one of Barbara's fancy pillows with a zipper. Baby steps here, folks.
