DIRECTIONS:

Note: 3/8’ seam allowance unless otherwise noted

Note: Satin stitch is a tight zig zag stitch. Adjust sewing machine stitch length and width to find preferred results.

Preparation:

  1. Cut two  54”x15” pieces of tan fabric for the pillow front and back.
  2. Trace letters in reverse onto paper side of the fusible adhesive.

*Tip- Enlarge lettering per pattern instructions then trace by holding letters up to a window and use as a big “light box.” Tape pattern to window so it won’t shift while tracing.

Trace life preserver and strap pieces on fusible adhesive per pattern provided.

  1. Fold Rick rack in half to find center point and cut into two pieces.  To make the rope effect – Place the two pieces of rick rack side by side. Pin or stitch ends together to hold in place. Cross one piece over the other, meeting “hill” with “valley” of the opposite piece, keeping “rope” flat. Continue until two pieces have become one. Pin or stitch end to keep piece together. Iron gently to make piece flat.

*Tip- Pin “rope” to ironing board to keep from twisting while working. Remove pins when ironing.

Sewing:

  1. Arrange letters on pillow front and fuse in place per manufacturer instructions.

*Tip- Use a ruler to keep letters an equal distance from each other and edges.

  1. Satin stitch around each letter. (Applique sewing foot optional for this step)
  2. Arrange rick rack rope around life preserver and slightly tuck under strap pieces. Sew rick rack to pillow with matching thread. Fuse life preserver and strap pieces to pillow per manufacturer instructions. Satin stitch around each life preserver piece, changing embroidery thread color for different sections.

*Tip- When satin stitching rounded areas, go slowly to ensure a nice stitch line. You may need to decrease stitch width in areas that come to a point.

  1. Pin roping trim to outer edge of pillow front so that edge of trim and pillow edge meet. Where trim overlaps, guide one end off of the pillow and the other over top. Sew roping trim to pillow getting needle as close as possible to trim. (Zipper foot optional for this step)

*Tip- Trim will not turn at a 90 degree angle at corners. Clip trim edge at corners to ease around corner shape.

  1. Place pillow back on top of pillow front Right Sides together and pin. Sew around perimeter leaving an 8” opening for turning. Clip corners. Turn right side out and gently press.
  2. Stuff f pillow to desired firmness. Hand stitch opening closed.
