Woven ribbon pillow.
Very tedious work, but worth the effort! Made of ribbons, fusible lightweight interfacing, turquoise cotton fabric, thread and love. :)

You Will Need

  • Step 1

    I cut the interfacing to the size of the pillow.

  • Step 2

    I laid out the strips longways, and then wove a couple going the other way.

  • Step 3

    Then I would take a wet washcloth and press the few strips to make them stick.

  • Step 4

    Weave a few, press.

  • Step 5

    When you use interfacing you have to iron it with something wet to make it stick. Anyway, When I got to the end I just sewed it to another piece of fabric to make a pillow case.

  • Step 6

    I left an opening in the other piece of fabric to stuff it--which I wouldn't recommend, I would just buy a pillow and cover it--and stuffed it!

Just beautiful, do you have used glue or pins to stay the ribbons in their place, or only with ironing them.

This is really pretty, thanks for sharing and thanks for the explanation. Would it be okay if I added your explanation to the main body of the project and turned it in to a how-to?
