A little while ago Sarah asked me how I make pillows, and if I'd do a little tutorial on the process.
This got me thinking, because there are so many ways to make a pillow, and I don't mean the pillow front - I mean the pillow back. Envelope, zipper, buttons - each method has a heap of different options in itself.
I figure it'd make a really nice series of posts with some how-to's and hopefully you'll all share your tips on how to make a pillow as we go along too, because I know you'll have some great tips (that'll no doubt help me out too!)
It also ties in really nicely with a book I'm in that came out recently, Pillow Pop by Stash books (compiled by Heather Bostic)
It's a really great book full of inspiring pillow projects, and has full directions on all kinds of pillow backs.
This is the pillow I made....
Over the next few weeks I'll show you some different methods for making the pillow, some of the tools and products I like to use and ideas on finishing.
We'll cover basic envelope openings (2 ways), zippers, buttons and anything else I can think of as we go along.
I hope you'll enjoy it!
