One of the main focal points in any bedroom design is the bed and decorative bed pillows help add to the design. You've probably even seen design shows on TV or pictures in magazines with those inviting looking beds that have the plumped up pillows, haven't you?
When you begin sewing, remember to position your stitches about a half inch from the edge of the fabric. When you reach the end of a length of thread, make the smallest stitch you can and pass your needle through the loop before pulling the thread all the way through. Sew three sides of your pillow all the way, but only sew 2-3 inches on each end of the fourth side. (You will probably need to re-thread your needle multiple times). This will leave you an opening to insert the pillow form or stuffing. Remove the pins. Snip off a little of each corner of your pillowcase, being careful not to cut your stitches, so that the fabric won‘t bunch up when you turn it inside out.
Decorative silk pillows are made not only from silk, but also frequently have handcrafted silk patterns embroidered on them as well. The design might match the shade of the background so the pattern is discernible by its raised texture, or it may be in a matching shade so that you can see and feel the decoration.
