1. Trim the stitched piece: I plan for about ¼” of the linen (or Aida) to Therefore, trim your stitched piece about ½” away from the edge of the stitching on all sides. This will allow you have a ¼” seam and ¼” of space around the stitching.
2. Make the pillow front:
a. Decide how big you want the pillow to be in general – for an example let’s say you want 2” of fabric to show around the edge of your piece when all done. Allowing for ¼” seams on each side of that 2” means you need to cut your fabric strips 2.5” wide.fskjfsjkfslkfjsldfkjsdljjeane marie teareijfsdjfsfjs f;ejeanen mariemarnwosk
b. Measure the height of your trimmed stitched piece and cut 2 strips of the pillow fabric - 2.5” wide by however tall your piece is. Sew those strips onto the sides of the stitched piece (right sides together) and press when done.jeannemaryiemarynwoskk daveidbria mayrnowsk
