In fact, it’s the stripey one right on the cover. I found a bunch of linen the same color as my piano and have grand throw pillow plans for all of it.
I love, love, LOVE how this pillow turned out…and I only broke one sewing machine needle. In 20 years of sewing, I’ve never actually tried this method of gathering (zig zagging over a piece of upholstery thread). I’m going to use it as often as possible from here on out.
The linen was wider than 45″, so I got away with quite a bit less than the book says you need. I used about 78″. The book says 3.5 yards. I also couldn’t find any 18″ round pillow forms, so I cut up an old IKEA curtain and stuffed my own.
Oh look! I even color coordinated my kid.
Which project from the book should I try next?
