Instructions

  • Step 1

    Cut two peices of fabric one several inches longer then the other. I use chalk to mark where to cut.

  • Step 2

    Embroider chosen design on longest peice of fabric.

  • Step 3

    Create seams across the bottom by folding the two peices of fabric into one and other, leaving room at each end so the seams down the pillow fold under neatly.

  • Step 4

    Sew the seam on the back peice by folding it over itself some way down.

  • Step 5

    Sew seams down both sides of the pillow.

  • Step 6

    Sew the seam on the flap of the pillow the same way as Step 4.

  • How to make a stitched cushion. Embroidered Hand Made Pillow - Step 7
    Step 7

    Make a button hole by cutting into the fabric in a suitible place and sewing loops around the gap.
    I don't know if this is the proper way this is the way I do
    it and sometimes it works well sometimes it doesnt!

  • Step 8

    Mark where a button needs to go with chalk and sew on.

  • Step 9

    Stuff your pillow and button up. Done!
