Crewelwork and embroidery are considered among the most challenging and time-consuming of all the needle arts, the result of which is detail that can approximate a fine, painted canvas. Common materials for embroidery and crewelwork are silk, wool, and cotton.
It is so easy to add springtime color and comfort to your home with pillows. You can sew them yourself or purchase the pillow forms from craft, hobby or department stores and then decorate them yourself. From little bitty pillows that can be used to decorate doorknobs to giant pillows that can be used as extra seating, pillows can transform the look of the room in an instant!
Lay out your fabric on a flat surface. Using a ruler or measuring tape, draw two squares that are the size you ultimately want PLUS an extra 1 - 1/2 inches. Carefully cut them out with your scissors and lay them on top of each other with the outsides facing in. (You are going to sew your pillow inside-out and then reverse it to hide the stitching.) Pin the two pieces of fabric together by inserting a pin about every 2-3 inches.
