So first off. You need:
- This Tutorial -my 10 minute pillow cover :)
- Iron on hem
- Sewing Machine
Once you place all the ribbons on the fabric, you should have a good crease on the sides of the fabric that have been folded over. This will assist you with the next step. Undo all the pins and then turn the fabric right side in and refold to the same dimensions as before -use the creases to make it the same size.
Next sew along the open edges to close your cover -as shown in the tutorial. Hopefully you'll have some ribbon pieces in the stitch.
Just an FYI. I tried sewing each ribbon on individually before the iron on technique. It could work if you had a lot of patience. But it was a complete disaster for me. The ribbons wouldn't stay in place and kept moving out of line and bunching up and ....I can go on and on. It just wasn't pretty. That's why I opted for the iron on technique...and then once they are all securely in place, go to town with the sewing machine. So much easier that way :) Trust me.
Next week? The full office reveal! Finally. I'm half tempted to show you the before of the office, but I'm going to hold out cuz right now I don't feel like being completely mortified and embarrassed :)
