I love this pillow! The texture and rich fall colors are fabulous!
Playing around with the ribbon was half the fun! I wanted to make sure that when the project was complete the colors would work well together.
This Wonder Tape was perfect for holding the ribbon down.
I realized after doing a few pieces of ribbon that it would work best if I over layered the pieces.
Make sure you have plenty of thread and bobbins filled as you’ll go through lots!
I basted the Ric-Rac down to the face of pillow before sewing the front and back together.
The pinned them together …
Turned it right side out and stuffed it with a 20″ Pillow Form!
When choosing your ribbons I would use lots of Jacquard for their brilliant design, Herringbone for solid color that the other ribbons play against, textured Grosgrain and Ultra-Suede Ribbon, and a bit of sparkle to keep it fun!
Having at least 2 yards of some ribbons, makes sure you’ll have enough to play with.
