Overview

Everyone loves pillows, whether cushions on couches, fluffy bed pillows, or satin pillow sachets. The editors of Country Living offer advice on how to create custom-made pillows-with the great look and quality of those found in stores, but for a lot less money. And Country Living Handmade Pillows offers far more than just the standard bed and sofa pillows: Here are herbal pillows, eye pillows, travel pillows, satin bridal pillows, and celebratory holiday pillows. This book guides readers through the steps necessary to make new pillows from "found" materials, such as vintage laces, handkerchiefs, and doilies.

Country Living Handmade Pillows includes many no-sew ideas for quick and easy projects; for the more committed, a chapter on sewing basics reveals the finishing touches that make pillows even more special: tassels, monogramming, trimmings, and more.

Best of all, pillows create an almost-instant change in decor; as eye-catching decorative accents, they can't be beat. Anyone interested in pepping up the look of a room, creating a relaxing mini cushion to soothe the senses, or making a perfect small gift needs this delightful book!

Pillows Shapes & Sizes

Two of the first design decisions when making a pillow are shape and size.Pillows go far beyond the familiar square and can be made in virtually any shape and size — hearts, stars, cubes, triangles, and more.Buy conventional shapes in craft and sewing supply stores, or make your own form with muslin and stuffing (see Chapter Five, Materials & Techniques, for how to do this, along with other helpful sewing hints).

When deciding on a pillow size and shape, consider the fabric:Solid-color fabrics offer the most shape options because there is no repreat to be centered.A large pattern works best on an oversize pillow.A heavyweight fabic lends itself to virtually any shape; delicate silk and chiffon need to be lined, which your shape would have to work with. Sometimes details will inspire the shape; perhaps you have four tassels to show off at the corners of a square pillow. Selecting the right size is important to a pillow's appearence so that the finished pillow doesn't seem too massive or too small.But altering a pillow size — going bigger or smaller than usual — is one way to transform the feel of a room.

Build on the ideas in this chapter — enlarge an oblong; add ball fringe to a circle, piping to a square.Have fun with them.
