'May is for Mothers'
I had so much fun making the May pillow cover. I love the dimensional aspects the padded applique brings to the project. I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did.
Following the very beautifully written instructions for completing the pillow front, prepare your applique.
When you are ready to start your applique stitching, use an erasable fabric marker to mark the edge on any same colour pieces for ease of seeing your fabric edges.
Follow instructions for attaching boarders and set aside AND finishing the pillow front in general instructions and set aside.
Padded Applique leaves - pg. 20
Follow instructions given for leaves, ***remember to make a SMALL opening cut*** before sewing #step 3.
Once you have sewn around your leaf and are ready to finish cutting opening for turning, I found it easier for turning if you don’t cut too close to the top of leaf.)
I used Invisafil to whip stitch my opening closed and applied Fray Check. Do not be too fussy on this step, as it does not show once attached.
Follow instruction as given for making yo-yos.
Once your leaves and yo-yos are ready to attach, position and pin in place. Follow instructions for attaching.
Hope you all enjoyed this sew along, and don’t forget to share pictures, I would love to see some finished covers.
