How to update decorative pillows quickly and inexpensively
Admit it, it bothers to look at the same thing all the time, use the same things. Here I am the same. To set the mood, I change something in the apartment: curtains, bedspreads, pillows ... The other day I decided to update two small decorative pillows decorating the bed. Pillowcases from tapestry, which were previously packed with my thoughts, faded and a little fed up. I rummaged in the bins and found a nice fabric - a curtain satin. Once left from sewing curtains. This atlas was not enough for me, so I decided to sew the back of the pillow cases out of a different fabric - furniture.For this, I carved out two rectangles of curtain atlas measuring 58 x 44 cm (on each side, add 1 cm to the seam and 3 cm to the size of the pillow on "ears", it turns out 8 cm). These will be the front parts of the pillows.Cut out four rectangles from furniture fabric: two - 44 by 54 cm in size (the main part of the pillowcase should be smaller by the width of one “eye” and the seam, t . e.4 cm) and two - 44 by 20 cm in size (this is for the valve, so as not to sew a lock or other fastener). On each piece of furniture fabric, we edged an edge on the 44 cm side. Just tucked the fabric in 1 cm and stitched on a typewriter.Chipped the blanks of curtain fabric and furniture, folded them "face" to each other. First put the valve, and on it the basis of the back side of the pillowcase, the edges of the treated to each other.I sewed pillowcases around the perimeter, keeping an indent from the edge of the fabric 1 cm. I sewed the sewn pillowcase, again cleaved the edge with needles so that the fabric did not slide, and it was more convenient sew.Each pillowcase is stitched on all sides at a distance of 3 cm from the edge. For a more direct line, you can draw a line on the ruler with chalk.Pillowcases once again ironed, but only satin fabric, furniture ironing is undesirable. She put on pillows into decorative pillow cases and they glittered beautifully with a new pink satin.
It will takeI buy such a flap for various handicrafts and sewing in a furniture fabric store. For the manufacture of new pillowcases, I still needed:
- scissors, ruler, pen, chalk;
- threads, needles for chipping fabric;
- sewing machine, overlockiron.
Update pillowsTo begin with, I measured the pillow: length - 50 cm, width - 36 cm. Since the curtain fabric I had a narrow stripe, I sewed it, processed the seam with an overlock and stitched on the front side. The edges of the workpiece are also processed so that the fabric does not crumble while sewing. All otgladila. Now you can start cutting. I decided to make pillowcases with “ears” (the pillowcase is pushed around the entire perimeter at a certain distance from the edge) 3 cm wide.
