Most of the people already started to decorate their homes with pretty Easter stuff: cute bunnies, little chicken and Easter eggs. But I donâ€™t feel like bunnies and Easter eggs right now and so I want to show you how to sew clouds for your Easter flower bouquet.
Letsâ€™s geht started!
Cut out the cloud pattern and pin it on the fabric you like and cut along the pattern â€“ put the fabric double so the front and the back will be even. No additional seam allowance necessary.
Later we will close the cloud by hand with the so called mattress stitch â€“ and to do this we have to spare a part that we wonâ€™t sew together with the machine. This part you have to neaten on the front and the backside with a zigzag stitch.
Pin the front and the back of your cloud fabric together (inside out of course) and sew it together with a straight stitch. Donâ€™t forget the leave the neatened space open.
Turn inside out.
Fill the cloud will wadding. I usually to do this with a chopstick.
Close the cloud with the mattress stitch.
Do it nice and easy and donâ€™t pull the thread too strong.
This is how it should look like.
Finally you stick the needle a last time deep into your cloud, pull it out...
... cut the thread. And thatâ€™s it already!
I hope you enjoy sewing many, many cute clouds :-)
