Pretty Patchwork Pillow

This patchwork pillow is designed so that it can be made as an American flag pillow or using any fabrics you like for patchwork fun!  You will 
select 5 fat quarter-yards (must be purchased from the Stitchery) for the front and back to cover a 12 inch by 16 inch pillow form.  

Skills learned for beginners will include cutting your fabrics, sewing seams to piece your pillow together, and making an envelope back for your pillow. 

Optional techniques for your pillow will also be taught.  Including making custom cording and putting it around the edge of your pillow with your zipper foot, putting in a zipper instead of doing the envelope back, making the pillow reversible by customizing the back with machine made buttonholes, sewing on buttons by machine, and embellishing the back with an embroidery design.  We will also talk about "dog ears" and how to eliminate them from your pillow if you do not like them everyone is welcome to customize their pillow as they like.
