I love designing pieces for my home and my friends' as well. Pillows are all the rage and so I decided to try my hand at a simple pillow design. If you can sew a line of straight stitches (it doesn't have to be ruler straight) you can make this pillow!!
The eCraft can use many forms of input for cutting. You can use the wonderful SD cards that eCraft has. You can even use your eCraft software to manipulate the images from the sd cards and send to be cut by your machine. Many don't know though about the online library of ready to download images at eCraft Central. I love using these images for making appliques. I even manipulate them so I can create "one of a kind" pieces! In this project I used photo corner number 32. I also used a looped piece, Embellishment number 1. I used the "Sure Cuts A Lot" software to mirror the image and to weld it to make a medallion. I also used the shadow function to produce the background.
Just for fun!!
My pillow form was a fourteen by fourteen one so it was pretty easy to determine that a cut of fabric fifteen by fifteen would work for what I wanted. So I made my cut of base fabric. Then I folded the square in half and then opened it and folded it in half on the other side to form a center point. I also folded my shadow piece to center it on the pillow case front.
I sewed around the whole piece and trimmed the edges. I turned the pillow case right side out and popped the pillow form in. I have a cute pillow that I can change as my mood and decor fits!
I hope you enjoyed my presentation! Look forward to next week! Please leave me comments, suggestions, and have a great week!
