I made a few of these pillows, which I had seen on Pinterest. (Another great way to pass the time as I’m elevating my foot.)
I measured my pillow forms and cut the burlap squares to the exact same size as the pillows. When I cover pillows, I don’t account for a seam allowance. I like the pillows to be tight and not droopy or oversized. I laid the burlap on paper towels on the kitchen counter.
I used some outdoor pillows, I already had, and just recovered them. The pillows look perfect on my benches, out front.
I love it when a craft/sewing project falls together like this. I’ve been wanting to make these, but could never seem to find the time. To top it off, I just happened to have all of the supplies on hand. (Although, I did have to crawl around in the garage to find my paint bin and I don’t think the doctor would have approved of that.) Other than that, I was able to sew the day away, while still keeping my foot elevated. Not a bad way to spend an unplanned day at home.
