|Click Here is the printable I used.....|
Here is a video from http://www.craftygemini.blogspot.com/ that instructs you exactly how to make an envelope pillow that I found the other day and this is exactly how I make mine. Her blog has alot of tutorials for other sewing projects as well. Sometimes, a visual step by step guide is easier to learn from then me trying to tell you exactly what to do....
Here is what I used to make this easy project:
Transfer Sheet for the ink jet printer
White cotton fabric
Printable or Subway Art - Here is the one I used
Burlap or any other decorative fabric
I first started off by choosing the printable and printing it on the transfer paper in REVERSE PRINTING. You will want to make sure you print it out like this so when you iron it on it reads correctly.
Place the printed transfer sheet on top of white fabric and iron on according to the directions.
After it has been ironed on, peel off the backing...
I cut the white fabric after it was ironed on to the size I wanted and then sewed it onto my burlap. The burlap was cut 23" square and then sewed it onto the burlap. I centered it on the 23" square so it would insure that it would be centered on the pillow.
Please watch the video above, she gives you Step by Step instructions......
I'm now ready to sew my envelope pillow....
Here it is inverted after all 4 sides were sewn....SUPER EASY
I put my 18" insert into the cover and I am now ready to trim around the edges with some decorative trim and hot glue.
Here it is after a little trim....
All finished and on the fireplace.....
