My friend Kendra made a Pillow Mattress that was featured on Ucreate yesterday.
I had just bought pillows from Ikea to make it.
I gave it a shot Yesterday and it was horrible!! ok- maybe it wasnt that bad but I didnt lay it out - I was just doing it from my mind. at night.
Here is how I made my pillow mattress Round 2
Step 1 : Do NOT do what I did on yesterdays post!
Step 2: Cut your mistake up
Step 3: Lay out your fabric in the order you want them and realize they are folding in half the wrong way
Step 4: Make fabric strips 60 x 29 (width of pillow plus a little)
Step 5: Sew strips together. Make sure pillows will work out.
Step 6: hem all edges
Here I added a strip to make mine up to 60 inches. With all my mistakes yesterday I didnt have the correct amount of fabric.
My layout with the longer side being the fold over.
Step 7: place pocket back to back and fold the main piece face to face and sew up the edges
|you can see Kendras blog in the back giving me the helping hand!|
|you can see its face to face with the pocket piece back to back.|
Step 9: Sew down each section. I used a zig zag for stability and decoration.
Step 10: Lay it out and Stuff it!
I cant wait for Zeke to give this a try!
