14″ pillow form
1/2 yard white duck or twill fabric.
12 yards of pompom trim
1. Cut your fabric pieces.
Cut 2: 15″ x 15″
Cut 1: 15″ x 14″
Cut 1: 15′ x 7″
2. Cut all the pom trim into 15″ lengths. You should get at least 7 pieces of each color (if you are using 4 colors)
3. Place your first 15″ pom trim piece 1.5″ from the bottom of the 15″ square piece. The top of the trim should be at the 1.5″ mark as seen above
4. Using the same colored thread as the trim, sew on with a wide zig-zag stitch.
5. Add the next row right next to the other one, working your way up. I found there was no need to pin the pom trim once you get started. It is easier to keep it close with your hands while you are sewing than trying to pin all that trim down! Sew on 7 rows of the first color.
6. Continue with the rest of the colors. Each color will be 7 rows high.
7. Trim the poms off on the ends so you can sew your 1/2″ seam.
8. Take your cut pieces for the back. (7×15 & 14×15) On the 15″ side, fold over and press 1″ down on the top and then fold over and press again 1″ to create a hem. Sew in place . Do the same on both pieces as shown above.
9.Take the now 15″ x 12″ piece and place it RST on the pom fringe piece. Sew with a 1/2″ seam allowance.
10. Take the now 15″ x 5″ piece and place it down and sew it onto place, making sure to reinforce around the edges. Clip corners and turn right side out
