Sue Simpson from Back Pocket Design will be showing you how to make an envelope pillow & form. Sue has decades of pillow making experience. Over the years she has developed an envelope style pillow style. It is a quilted pillow with an open back that has room to insert a pillow form. It's a professional looking finish with no zippers, no velcro, and no raw edges inside.
Bring to class a quilted pillow top...any size! We will discuss what size the back panels you need for your pillow size. Sue will demonstrate how you can quilt and assemble your pillow cover.
Then, we will get out our sewing machines, and we will make a pillow form to fit your pillow. This is a technique Sue has developed for making a pillow form that has full corners, smooth sides and fits perfectly.
*Quilted pillow top of any size you would like to make into a pillow. (There will be discussion, measuring and demonstration for each pillow top size in class to determine the back panel sizes.
You will cut, quilt and these after class.)
For Pillow form: *1/2 yard muslin or other cotton fabric (more if your pillow is greater than 16? in either length or width)
*Craft sized package of Dream Puff or large scraps of fluffy poly batting
*Sewing machine (a walking foot is highly recommended)
*Rotary cutter, ruler
*Straight pins, needle, thread
