Paisley Pillows

Stitch up paisley motifs to match the fabrics, or use leftover embroidery test samples.

Cutting
  • Cut two 5" x 7", two 5" x 15" (cut with the 5" width on the horizontal) and two 9" x 15" rectangles from the stripe fabric.
  • Cut two 3" x 4 1/2" rectangles and one 10" x 17" rectangle from the paisley print for the mini pillow.
  • Cut two 7" square from the white cotton scraps.
Embroidery
  • Fuse mesh cut-away stabilizer to the back of the white cotton rectangles.
  • Embroider the designs of your choice. Leave the stabilizer in place to alleviate show-through under the white fabric.
