Put the pillowcase inside out through the opening on the fourth side. Push out the corners to get them as pointy as you can. Flatten out the pillowcase and fold in the edges of the opening on the fourth side so that they line up with the parts you‘ve already sewn shut. Iron the folded-in opening flat so that it will be easier to sew closed later.
Hooked pillows, like rugs, are made from strands of woolen yarn hooked through a canvas backing to create a specific design or motif. Often considered less formal than needlework pillows, hooked cushions may showcase holiday or other themes, and many use humor and whimsy as well.
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!
