Cut a long piece of thread (about 2 feet long) and insert it through the needle. Pull the thread through until you have two equally-long pieces of thread hanging from the needle. Tie the two pieces together at the bottom so that you will be sewing with "double" thread. (An easy way to tie a knot is to hold the two pieces of thread together, wrap them around your index finger, roll it off with your thumb and then pull the mess of thread towards the end into a knot).
Pillow manufacturers make pillows once the order has been placed. The fabric to be used for casing is decided by the buyer. Material for filling can be chosen from the variety available with the manufacturer. If the buyer wants a particular design embroidered, then the manufacturer may get it done from expert embroiders working with them. Quilted pillows may also be ordered to get that country feel and rustic look.
An alternative to store-bought decorative pillows is making your own. Though it may seem like a complicated project, it’s really quite simple and can be accomplished with just a few basic sewing skills. One of the biggest benefits to making your own pillows is that you can choose the exact fabric and size that you want. And surprisingly, your handmade throw pillows will cost you less than the ones you might find in a store. Follow the steps below and you’ll have your own custom accent pillow in no time!
You can also choose the reversible designs to make your decorative pillows more exciting. There are so many stores that offer home decors. The reversible designs are those that have two fabrics in one pillow cover - one on the front and one on the back. Most of the time, the prints are mixed from the coordinating stripe and solid colors. You can also try botanical pattern for day one and a stripe on the following day.
Visit a local fabric store to purchase the supplies you'll need to make your decorative pillows. If there isn‘t one nearby, you can also find lots of fabric and supplies online. Or, you may have an existing item of clothing or other fabric in your home that you want to recycle for this project.
