Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Square by Design™ Square
  • 1/2 yd fabric A for pillow back (duck, denim, or twill recommended)
  • 1/3 yd fabric B for gathered piping (contrasting, lighter weight fabric)
  • 1 pkg 12/32” polyester filler cord
  • 1 bag of Poly-fil® (for 16"x20" pillow)
  • 18" pillow form (for 18" pillow)
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Water-soluble fabric marker or chalk
  • Zipper foot

DIRECTIONS:

    Note: To prevent fraying, use a finishing or zig zag stitch along each fabric edge. Seam allowances are 1/2" unless otherwise noted. If ironing is needed, use medium dry iron.
  1. For pillow front, center the Square by Design™ Square motif and cut to measure 17"x21" (for a 16"x20" pillow) or 19"x19" (for an 18" pillow).
  2. For pillow back and using fabric A, cut a 17"x21" (for 16"x20" pillow) or a 19"x19" (for 18" pillow).
  3. For piping and using fabric B: Cut 4 – 2-1/2"x40".
  4. Stitch the short ends of fabric B strips together, creating one long continuous strip measuring 4 yds.
  5. To create the gathered piping, place fabric B strip with right side facing out and wrap around the filler cord keeping raw edges even. Position the wrapped cord to the left of the needle and zipper foot. Adjust the needle position so it is against the cord but allowing the fabric to slide over the cord and leaving a 1/2" seam allowance.
  6. After stitching over a 4-yd length of cord, gather the fabric evenly to measure 2-1/2 yds. Trim excess cord.
  7. With the right side of the motif facing up and beginning at the center lower edge, pin gathered piping in place. Align the raw edges of the piping with the raw edges of the pillow front. Stitch in place by sewing close to the piping. Join the ends by tucking cording into fabric tube, turning under and overlapping the raw edge.
  8. With right sides together, pin pillow front to pillow back. Following the existing stitch line, sew the two layers together leaving an 8” opening at bottom edge for turning.
  9. For a 16"x20" pillow, insert small handfuls of Poly-fil® into the 4 corners before filling the body of the pillow. Hand stitch opening closed.
  10. For the 18" pillow, insert pillow form and hand stitch opening closed.
