Happy Friday!! Here is a quick tutorial for the pillow shams I have been making.
Crochet a block for a front piece of your pillow.
Measure your block, mine was 16" x 16", because the crochet has a little stretch when sewing it to the fabric cut your fabric panels 1/2" larger than your block.
You will need one 16 1/2" x 16 1/2" piece
& two 16 1/2" x 11" with finished edge on one side
I like the envelope panel on the back to overlap about 4" give or take a little.
Pin (very important) and zig zag stitch your crochet block to the large fabric panel.
Zig zag around the pillow, getting close to the edge securing everything nicely.
I like to go around again with a straight stitch keeping 1/4" seam allowance and just making sure its not going to come apart.
Clip your threads, turn inside out, and adore your new pillow sham!
You just might get a little addicted to this lovely little project.
They turn out so cute you just might find it hard to stop yourself. I know I did!!
