1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Pattern (pillows) help! on: April 28, 2011 08:40:09 AM
I apologize if this isn't in the right place, I didn't know where else to put it.  Huh


I need help with a pattern, I can not for the life of me figure out how to make these- Either I'm reading the instructions wrong or it's written in a way that makes it seem harder than it should be! They are supposed to be easy to make..

Here is the instructions and if anyone could help me (draw me pictures maybe?) I would really appreciate it- I'm making the pillows for Give Kids the World Village in Florida, which is a resort for Make-A-Wish kids going to Disney World. Thank you for any help!!!


Cut the plain pillow fabric into 36 inch lengths.  A rotary cutter and board help to ensure accuracy and also speed up the process. The pockets are cut into 12 inch lengths.

On the pillow fabric make a hem on both raw ends (do NOT sew selvages).  Turn down fabric about to and then again another to taking up about an inch to one and a half inches.  Accuracy is not critical.  On the pocket material, hem one raw end only using the same measurement (again do NOT sew selvages).


Match the hemmed edge of pocket and pillow.  Sew the pocket material strip to the pillow fabric right side to right side along the length that is not hemmed.  You could go back to the cutting board to pin them together to get a straighter line for sewing.

Take the fabric back to the cutting board and fold the pocket material toward the center (wrong side of pocket material to right side of pillow material).    Lay a ruler at the pocket where it is sewn and measure 15 inches.  Fold the pillow fabric over the ruler with the fabric right sides together.  Then fold the other end on top of the end you just folded at the pocket where it is sewn.

Now cut the flannel lengthwise into 4 pieces approximately 10-1/2 to 11 inches wide.  Flannel comes in different widths so just divide the flannel into fourths and do not worry about the selvage; they will be sewn or serged over. 

Make sure the pocket in the front and opening in the back are opposite.  The overlap in the back must be at least two (2) inches.  Little hands go in each opening to hold the pillow tight.

Use your serger to finish the side seams OR use a straight stitch and then zig zag the seams.  Clip corners and turn pillow to right side.

The finished size of the pillow and pocket will be (depending on your hem widths of 1/4 to 1/2" as well as the width of the flannel) as follows:
           Pillow:  9-3/4 to 10 wide X 15 long             Pocket:  9-3/4 to 10 wide X 11-1/2 long

I claim ilovesnails for dishcloths and fingerless gloves.

2nd claim, none sent.

My name is Alyssa, I live in Canada.
I love nature, dolphins, and photography. I love knitting, and other random crafts.
I have a German Shepherd named Skylar, and am getting another in the spring, named Kayden. We do agility & rally-o together. I love camping, hiking and the beach.
I'm a vegan, so nothing made from animals, please! Also, please only wrap stuff in the package if it's necessary!
Bolds are big wishes!

Wishlist:
Crafted:
--Something for Skylar and/or Kayden- Skylar is a girl, Kayden's a boy. They're both German Shepherds. Skylar's color theme is Pink & green, Kayden's is Blue & Green.
Their full names are Skylar Belle, and Kayden Courage. I do agility and rally with Skylar, and don't get Kayden until spring, but he'll be trained in the same things.
Ideas: leash, collar, bandana, blanket, anything for travelling, fleece tug toys, teddy, whatever! They are NOT chewers.

--Something for my new place- like a decorative pillow, wall hanging, whatever!
My bedroom is brown with green accents (like nature-y, trees and such)
My living room is black with neon accents, and my bathroom is white with blue ocean themed things, especially dolphins!

--A Drawstring backback for daytrips, in a green fabric, think nature =)

--Scrapbook page for Kayden or Skylar (they have seperate books, 8x8 inches)
I'm totally open to whatever you want to do here! ideas are camping, beach, hiking, rally, agility.

In a solid green khaki, or solid dark green fabric

--Earrings for my mother, whatever you want to do, she's not picky!
