Instructions for making this pillow:
Cut two pieces of decorator fabric (14" x 18" size). Stitch your embroidery design(s). Cut a 3"x2" piece of fabric and fold both sides towards the middle and stitch to lower middle of front piece.
Pin decorative cord trim, right sides together, around the edge of the front piece, beginning and ending in the middle of the small flange piece. Stitch cording and clip edges. Fold flange down and stitch (On very heavy cording trim this will prevent you from having an overlap that would be difficult or impossible to sew
Pin back to front, right sides together and stitch, leaving a 5" opening in the bottom. Turn right side out, through the opening. Fill with fiberfill and blind stitch opening. Finished!
1. If your piece of fabric is too small, too delicate, too slippery or too fat for hooping, you may hoop only a piece of backing (without the fabric), spray some temporary adhesive spray on hooped stabilizer, then stick the fabric to an appropriate spot and embroider.
