When my mom was little, my grandma would drag her and her siblings to fabric stores - my mother hated it. Maybe that's why she no longer sews? And when I was little, my mom would drag me to paint stores. Maybe if I learn to sew someday, I'll drag my kids to fabric AND paint stores. My grandma is the ultimate perfectionist when it comes to sewing. She made bridesmaid and candlelighter dresses for my aunt and uncle's wedding, my mom's wedding dress, the flower girl dresses in our wedding, pillows, curtains, patio furniture cushions and even tiny Barbie clothes. See why I feel like I'm disappointing her?
I previously bought pillow forms of various sizes then went to Hancock fabric. I found some fabric for 50% off, which was cheaper than when I looked at the fabric the first time. Here's Ehren posing and looking
I also got hem-tape from Wal-Mart at a whopping $0.97. First step is cutting the fabric about 1-2" bigger than the pillow. You want it to be a tight fit into the pillow cover.
After you've cut two squares, place the hem tape on the print side of the fabric and outline 3 sides of the pillow shape, then iron it on. I found that it makes the last two corners much nicer if you bring the hem tape a couple inches in on the 4th side/opening.
