This stitch is the one needed to close up that dreaded fourth side of a pillow. Think about it for a second. Fabrics down, and using your machine, stitch up three of the four sides of a square, or rectangular, pillow. Then, turn the fabrics inside out so your pretty sides are exposed. Add your insert, or polyfill, and then you are left to sew up the final side, all without the threads, or stitching, showing. You can hand sew, sure, but I want to learn how to do it with my machine. And so, this is my task.
Of course, I constantly have 3 children at home in my space, so that makes things slightly more challenging. But, I look at pictures, or think up ideas in my head and think, "I could do that." Well, the problem is that if I don't try, I won't be able to "do that".
I want to create beautiful things, and be a working homemaker, wife, mom of three, chef, housekeeper, architect, soccer mom, gardener, friend and chauffer that I've always wanted to be...
Here are some cute ideas, and inspiration:
