Once it's sewn in place, turn the strip over to where the folded edge is towards the right edge of the front piece of fabric. Sew in place again along the left side of the strip. It's very much like making a French seam. You can press in place or leave the fold loose. Since I broke my cute little ironing table/board I opted to not worry with the iron on this one.
I'm on a slow mission to make my bedroom exactly how I want it, no exceptions, and I want the majority of it to be things and creations that I've made FOR my bedroom. I made some cool 3D Wall Art a few months back, that I simply adoreso it was time to move on to accent pillows. I love my duvet but I wanted some cutesy, froufrou pillows.
When I made Boy Toy's messenger bag I had a little bit of the inside black poplin leftover. It was just enough to cover a 14 x14 pillow and I had a neat idea for a cover in mind.
Since my pillow was 14 x 14 I cut two pieces of the poplin 15 x 15 for the front and back of the pillow. Then I cut 1 piece 3 x 15 of a contrast color and fabric. My duvet is black, white and silver and I had a lot of white fabric on hand so I went with white.
Fold the white strip in half, wrong sides together and pin to the front of your fabric, vertically, 7'' in from the left side. Pin in place and sew to the right side of the front of your pillow.
I really, really, really love how this pillow turned out. It has a bit of a masculine quality to it, and it super trendy right now. Not to mention that it goes with my duvet per...fect....ly!!!!
