I can not believe there is only more day left in my pillow series. This week has flown by! I hope that you have been inspired to try a pillow, maybe even one of the tutorials I created. It has been fun and completely fulfilled my crazy desire to create a bunch of Easter pillows.
Today, I present "Bunnies at Church".. isn't it sweet? This is a vintage pattern from Needlecrafter - you can download it by clicking here. There are a ton of awesome vintage patterns to play with.
Fat quarter of white fabric
(2) fat quarters of spring pattern fabric
13" square of fusible batting
hand needle & thread
Step One: Print out the embroidery pattern from the site listed above.
Step Two: Grab your erasable pen and trace the pattern on to the white fabric.
* lower your feed dogs, if you can't do it manually on your sewing machine then you can tape a business card over them while you work.
*check to see if your machine has special settings for free motion - mine did and I didn't know for about 6 months..doh!
*some lower the stitch to 0, but I don't
* try to be consistent with your speed on the pedal and moving the fabric.
Fabric A - (2) 2"x10"
Fabric B - (2) 2"x13"
Step Nine: Cut a 13" square of one of the spring pattern fabrics. Pin the front and back covers right side together. Sew the around the border with a 1/4" seam allowance and leave a 3" open space on the bottom of the pillow. Clip the corners up to the stitching line and pull right side out.
Come on back tomorrow for my final pillow tutorial in the series.. crochet on fabric..mmmm, my favorite!
