Summer WindowScape Pillow

Summer Pillow WindowScape

 Summer WindowScape Pillow

Nothing says Summer like laying  in a hammock, whether at the beach or in your very own backyard. Our backyard hammock has honestly seen better days as our yard is filled with trees and all that comes with that type of landscape. The covers quickly become sun worn and just plain dirty from yard debri. I’ve tried scrubbing and pressure washing them and frankly just got tired of buying new covers so decided to make my own ‘slipcover’ for our existing hammock. This way I can take it inside when not in use as well as throw it in the wash when the need arises. Stay tuned for the hammock post coming soon on the Fairfield World site. Back to the Summer WindowScape Pillow. Once I finished the slip cover I knew I needed a new pillow so this post is about that pillow. I love birds and I love window panes and frankly with the heat index so high lately I just might do the bird watching from my air conditioned house. Anyway when I found this fun ‘bird on a twig’ fabric I decided to combine it with my love of window panes and create this fun addition to my hammock makeover. Full step by step diagrams and measurements as well as a detailed list of supplies will have you up and sewing in no time at all. Good Luck dear friends and be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post as this project is part of the Designer Crafts Connection BlogHop and you won’t want to miss my fellow designer’s posts as you hop back and forth.

Supplies:

½ yard Outdoor Fabric – Pillow Front

1/8 yard Outdoor Fabric – Window Framing

½ yard Outdoor Fabric – Backing & Ties

Poly-Fil® Soft Touch® 16 inch x 20 inch Pillow Insert

Velcro® Sew On tape – 12 inches

Thread

Sewing Machine

Basic Sewing, Cutting, Measuring & Pressing Tools/Supplies

How To:

Cut the following:

  • Window Panels: Two 10 ½ (w) x 13 ½ (h) rectangles from print fabric. Note: take the time to space the design within the window framing. ie: In example the birds are spaced within the window panes.
  • Framing Strips: One 1 ½ inch strip x width of the fabric and one 4 ½ inch x width of the fabric from the framing fabric.
  • Backing & Ties: One 16 ½ inch (w) x 17 ½ (h) and one 10 ½ inch (w) x 17 ½ inch from the backing fabric. Additionally cut four 1 ½ inch x 20 inch strips for the ties.
  1. Cut a 13 ½ length from the 1 ½ framing strip cut earlier. With right sides together stitch it between the two window panels.  Press the seams towards the window panels. Diagram A  Note: All seams are ½ inch wide.
  2. With right sides together and pressing after each seam, pressing the seam towards the inside of the window panel; sew a framing strip along the top edge of the pillow front, then the two sides. Trim excess materials before adding the next strip. With right sides together, sew a 4 ½ inch strip along the bottom edge of the pillow. Press the seam towards the inside of the window panel. Trim excess material even with the edges of the pillow front. Diagrams B & C
  3. Top stitch along the inside edges of the window panel, stitching 3/8 of an inch in from the framing strips. Diagram D
  4. Fold each of the 1 ½ inch strips cut for the ties in half lengthwise, right sides out and press. Open the fold and bring each of the raw edges in towards the fold line, refold and press well. Top stitch each of the folded strips to secure folds.  Diagram E
  5. Pin two strips side by side with the first strip placed 4 inches in from the center framing strip on the right side of the pillow front. Pin well. Repeat using the remaining two strips and pinning them to the opposite side of the pillow front. Diagram F
  6. Using the 16 ½ inch x 17 ½ inch backing piece, turn under the left side 1 inch. Repeat turning it under a second time. Press well. Center the hook side of the Velcro® on top of the seam, on the wrong side of the pillow backing and top stitch along either side, catching the edges of the Velcro® as you sew. Using the 10 ½ inch x 17 ½ inch backing piece, turn under the right side 1 inch. Repeat turning it under a second time. Press well. Center the loop side of the Velcro® on top of the seam, on the right side of the pillow backing and top stitch along either side, catching the edges of the Velcro® as you sew.  Diagrams G & H
  7. With right sides together, pin the pillow front to the pillow back. Stitch around the outside edge using a ½ inch seam. To reinforce, stitch a second row ¼ out from the first row. Clip corners. Diagram I
  8. Turn the pillow right side out and press well. Insert Pillow.

Sterling Silver Cuddle Pillow

· Comments (0)

Sterling Silver Cuddle Pillow1

 Don’t you want to just reach out and touch this textural pillow. Dimension is achieved not only through the wonderful Sterling Silver Pre-cuts by Shannon Fabrics but the 3D nature of the pillow design itself. Full size petal patterns as well as step by step diagrams will have you ready to sew in no time at all.

Supplies:

Two sets of Sterling Silver Cake Squares by Shannon Fabrics

One 18 inch by 18 inch Soft Touch® Pillow Insert

One yard of Structure Fusible Interfacing

One Half Ball Cover Button – Size 75

Basic Sewing, Cutting, Measuring and Pressing tools and supplies

How to:

Note:  All seams are 1/2 inch. To request the pattern, please leave a comment and I will be happy to send you a pdf of full size patterns.

  1. Choose four squares each from the Sterling Silver Cake Squares selection for the front and back of your pillow. Mix shades of grey as well as textures.

  2. With right sides together, stitch two sets of two squares together, they stitch the two sets together to form a larger square. Repeat to assemble the back of the pillow.

  3. With right sides together, stitch the pillow front and back together, leaving a 8 inch opening along the bottom edge.

  4. Insert the Soft Touch® Pillow Insert and hand stitch the opening closed.

  5. Large Petals: Choose two squares for each of five petals, one lighter grey and one darker grey. Once again mix textures. With right sides together, cover the lighter squares with Structure Fusible Interfacing, following the manufacturer’s directions.

  6. Using the pattern, trace the outline of the larger petal directly onto the interfacing.

  7. Stitch along the traced line. Trim 1/4 inch from the stitched line and turn right side out. Continue until you have created five large petals and four small petals. Note: I choose to feature the darker petals as the large petals and the reverse for the smaller petals.

  8. Using a needle and thread, stitch the five large petals together. Gather and tie off your thread.

  9. Once again using a needle and thread, stitch the four small petals together. Gather the petals and then place the smaller petals on top of the large and stitch the two layers together, sewing through the center of the petals.

  10. Following the manufacturer’s directions, cover a large half ball button with the cuddle fabric of your choice.

  11. Center the flower on top of the pillow form and using a large needle and doubled thread insert needle into the center back of the pillow and come up through the center front of the pillow and shank of the button.

  12. Insert the needle and thread back down and through a button added to the center back of the pillow. Repeat three or four times, stitching through the fabric, pillow form and buttons. Pull threads taught and insert needle back through one of the holes in the button. Wrap thread around the back of the button and tie off.

Giant Spring Flowers with oly-fun™

· Comments (5)

Garden Party 001A


Garden Party 011A

Making giant flowers to use as chair back accents, to hang in trees, place on your front door or used as a table centerpiece is sew simple and a great idea to dress up your table or your home for Spring. I used oly-fun™ as it is cost effective and comes in so many delightfully Spring-like colors. Full size patterns and step by step written instructions as well as diagrams will help you achieve success from your first flower to your tenth. I would love to see these flowers utilized as wedding decor. They would look great as an alternative to the traditional pew bow, but honestly the options are limitless as changing the size is simply a matter of placing the pattern on your copy machine and creating whatever size you can imagine. Have fun!

 

Supplies:

oly-fun™ – Orchid, Lemon Drop, Bubblegum, Sea Green, Snow Drop

Floral wire & Wire cutters

White thread

Glue Gun

Basic sewing, cutting and pressing tools

How to:

A.  Using the patterns* and measurements provided cut out the flower petals, center ruffle and stamen strips.

B.  Top stitch using white thread around each petal

C.  Using a needle and thread with a knot on one end, stitch the five largest petals together using a large gathering stitch. Draw up the thread and distribute the gathers. Stitch back into the flower center to secure the gathers and trim away any excess thread.

D. Repeat stitching and gathering together the four smaller petals.

E.  Using a needle and thread with a knot on one end, stitch along one edge of the center ruffle using a large gathering stitch.

F.  Draw up the thread and distribute the gathers. Stitch back into the ruffle to secure the gathers and trim away any excess thread. Using the glue gun, add a drop of glue to the open edge of the center ruffle.

G. Wrap one of the  1/2″ strips around itself to form 8″ wide loops, continue until all three strips have been used. Wrap a piece of wire around the center of the loops and twist the ends together, gathering the loops together tightly at the center point. Trim away excess wire and flatten the wire ends against the back of the flower.

H. Stack the flower layers on top of each other, adding glue and pressing until the glue sets between each of the layers.

Depending on the intended use of the flowers you may want to add a tie or hanging loop. Finish your flower with a 3″ circle of matching oly-fun™ to cover the center back of the flower.

*If you would like a copy of the patterns, leave a comment with your request and I will send the pdf to you…..

Pleated Ribbon Pillow

· Comments (12)

Offray LogoFinal Offray Ribbon

Turn simple grosgrain ribbon into a gorgeous pleated pillow masterpiece. A little math and you are on your way with complete diagrams and step by step directions.  I promise it is not that difficult.


Supplies:

Offray grosgrain ribbon – 3″ wide Navy & White, Buttons,Poly-fil® pillow form or Poly-fil® premium polyester stuffing, 1/2 yard of cotton fabric plus basic sewing, cutting and ironing supplies.

How to:

Determine the finished pillow size. To do this, take into consideration the width of the ribbon ie: Ribbon that is 3″ wide when folded will create folded  designs 3″ square. Use multiples of the 3 inches when deciding the finished size of the pillow you wish to create. The featured pillow is 15 x 21 inches.

A.  Cut ribbon three times longer than the width of the finished pillow plus 6 inches. ie: finished pillow will be 21 wide , cut ribbon 3 x 21 + 6 = 69 inches.  The pillow will be 15 inches in height so you will need 5 rows of ribbon. Starting 3″ inches from one end, place marks on the top and bottom edges of the ribbon, spacing the marks 3 inches apart. Note: If you were using a different width of ribbon you would alter the length of the spaces to match the width of the ribbon.

B. Fold the first set of markings to match the second set of markings and pin. Fold the third set of markings back towards the second set and pin. This is the first box pleat. Continue folding from left to right and then right to left until you have created the required number of box pleats. In the case of the project pillow that number would be seven.

C.  Using a thread and needle; Stitch through the center of each pleat, being sure to stitch through all layers of the ribbon. Note: The stitching is marked in red on the diagram.

D.  Turn the pleated ribbon over to what will become the front.

E.  Bring the top and bottom edges of the ribbon to meet at the center point, secure by stitching a button through all layers of the ribbon.

F.  Lay the completed strip of pleated ribbon over the top of another length of ribbon. In the case of the project, a contrasting color was used.

G.  Cut a length of fabric for the pillow front 1″ larger than the length and width of the pillow. ie: Finished pillow will be 15″ x 21″. Cut pillow front 16″ x 22″. Center the ribbon strips on top of the pillow front fabric. Stitch between and at the center of each of the pleated areas. Be sure to stitch through all layers of the ribbon and fabric.

H.  Cut two pieces of fabric for the pillow backing. Cut one the height of the pillow plus 1 inch x the width of the pillow plus 8 inches. Cut the second piece the height of the pillow plus 1 inch x the width of the pillow + 3 inches. ie: The project pillow is 15″ x 21″, cut one piece 15″ + 1″ = 16″ by 21″ + 8 = 29″ cut the second piece 15″ +1″ = 16″ by 21″ +3 = 24″. Turn over 1 inch along one of the side edges of each piece and press. Turn over a second time and top stitch.

I.  With the pillow front laying face up on a flat surface, cover with the two pillow back sections, overlapping the center edges. Stitch around the outside edge. Clip corners and turn right side out. Insert pillow form.

Depending on the finished size of the pillow you may not be able to purchase a pillow form. To make a custom size of  pillow form; cut two pieces of cotton fabric 1 inch larger than the width and length of the finished pillow. With right sides together, stitch around the outside edges, leaving a 4 inch opening. Clip corners and turn right side out. Fill with poly-fil® premium polyester stuffing to desired fullness. Stitch the opening closed. Insert the pillow form into finished pillow.

Frozen Blooms Wreath Photo Watermarked

This post is all about things you love….I love oly-fun by Fairfield Processing and to add to that, the color palette is just yummy. I came up with this wreath because I also love winter. OK – I understand it is not everyone’s favourite season but I am originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and man you better love winter or you are in a whole lot of trouble. Now living where I live now (Virginia) might play a factor into my continued love of Winter a bit more but to me it is all about the white, clean crispness of the weather and ultimately the snow.

You might at first glance think this wreath has something to do with the Disney® movie entitled Frozen®…..I have never seen it and while I have heard it is wonderful, trust me it is about ice and snow and nothing more. Here is the diagram of step outs to walk you through the process. If you would like a detailed set of instructions check out the post on the Fairfield blog

July 4th Pillow with Craft Attitude™

· Comments (3)

Fourth of July Pillow (2)

Have you tried QuiltAttitude™ a print at home, transfer to just about anything product. I recently received a package of Quilt Attitude™ and had to just give it a try. With July 4th around the corner and my love of sewing I decided a pillow to sit on one of the chairs outside the front door would be the perfect project. I gathered my supplies and set to work.

Supplies:

Two sheets of Craft Attitude™, Quilt Attitude™, Floral Attitude™, Shoe Attitude™, Jewelry Attitude™ or Scrapbooking Attitude™ (This product is so versatile it has numerous names. They all work for this project.)

Three coordinating fat quarters of fabric

Two Steam-a-Seam2 fusible web sheets

One Crafter’s Choice 16″ Pillow Insert

Rick Rack, Embroidery Thread & Needle

Computer & Printer

Basic sewing supplies

USA Pillow Craft Attitude Transfer SheetsJPG

I choose to play with fonts on the computer and words that described not only the United States but the Fourth of July specifically. My plan was to have two panels of words and then balance the project with fabric in the opposite corners. I drew two 8 inch squares on my computer and filled in the space with phrases using a variety of font, font sizes and three colors of ink. I also added a star or two to each square to balance everything. Next I read the printing directions and chose to reverse the wording of my designs on the computer rather than set up my printer to print them mirror image. You need to do this one way or the other as the words will transfer backwards if you skip this step. Here are my two printed panels….

USA Pillow Craft Attitude Transfer Sheets trimmedJPG

After letting the ink set for a couple of hours, I trimmed the transfer sheets leaving a 1/4 inch border. Next step…go back to your instructions and read carefully how to transfer to fabric. I chose the fusible web method and pressed my transfer sheets to Steam-a-Seam2 fusible web. I achieved success the first time out which goes to show you that great instructions are key, I however did go over the instructions a couple of times.
USA Pillow Close Up

I cut eight 4 1/2″ squares, cutting four from a striped fabric and four from a dot fabric. Using 1/4″ seams I quickly sewed four squares together to create one of the quarter panels. Repeat to create the second panel using the remaining four squares. If you would like to add rick rack or another trim, now is the time to do so. I choose to attach the rick rack using french knots. Stitch the fabric quarter panels to the Craft Attitude™ transfer panels, alternating their placement and referring to the project photo. Press seams towards the fabric panels. Stitch the two halves together and press. Reminder: to do let your iron touch the Craft Attitude film, always use a pressing cloth.

Once the pillow front has been completed, embellish with buttons or other items of your choice. Measure the pillow front and cut a backing fabric using this measurement. With right sides together sew backing fabric to pillow front leaving a six inch opening along one side. Turn right sides out and press. Insert a 16″ Crafter’s Choice pillow form and hand stitch the opening closed.

Fourth of July Pillow Close Up

That was pretty simple and very Patriotic. Have fun this 4th of July,
