Here’s a mission from one in every of my books, Artful Chica’s Information to Clever Stitching: Fabu-Low-Sew Tasks for the On a regular basis Crafter.
A Valentine pillowcase you make from scratch
The concept is to “draw” with thread on white cotton material, then sew it right into a pillowcase, that may then be coloured with markers.
That is one in every of my all-time favourite initiatives as a result of it is vitally intelligent (or no less than I feel so)!
From scratch, actually? Don’t shoo me away simply but – learn on, please!
Give it some thought – we’re solely stitching a rectangle. You’ll be able to deal with that.
Pillowcases are a quick and enjoyable approach to make use of up extra material and provides your bedding some custom-made design. However these usually are not simply any pillowcases – these are pillowcases that you’ll sew on an overview after which coloration in with markers.
Provides for the Valentine pillowcase
1 piece of white cotton material, 27″x40″
Iron and urgent material
Coronary heart template for pillowcase
Piece of cardboard to go underneath the material as you coloration.
You can even try my earlier pillowcase tutorial for extra detailed instructions.
You’ll begin with a big piece of pre-washed white cotton material. Iron it easy.
Fold it in half to the scale of your pillow – somewhat larger.
Use a disappearing ink pen and draw/hint your coronary heart sample on one aspect of the pillowcase (the e-book comes with the template of the sacred coronary heart proven in image).
Use a good zig zag to sew across the design. Consider it as a coloring e-book, and you’re stitching on the define. Should you don’t wish to machine sew, you possibly can embroider the design.
After you have that, coloration the design in with the markers. Ensure that to put the cardboard underneath the place you’re coloring so it gained’t bleed by beneath.
Different: Should you don’t have a machine, embroider the outlines!
Now fold in half and stitch.
The e-book has way more detailed directions, like the precise measurements and the best way to add a cute border cuff. You need to use this system for different kinds of cloth initiatives too, like toss pillows, skirts, jackets, totes, and so on.
Purchase a clean white pillowcase and use material markers to paint! Use black to attract the preliminary design.
