Sew On: Simple Envelope-Backed Pillow
Don't worry folks, this isn't about to turn into a sewing blog. I'm not that crafty ;) But I decided I needed to get a few more sewing projects under my belt before I try and tackle Chloe's Hallowe'en costume. Since I already made the world's simplest tea towel my first time out, I decided to try the second-simplest project ever... an envelope-backed pillow.
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.
