Any products made from multi-coloredScraps can not be boring and gloomy. As a rule, they are associated with people only with coziness and home heat. Even in the most rigorous interior, patchwork items can bring in a spark and a twist. A feature of "patchwork" is that it is possible to create practically from nothing, absolutely any fabrics that you can find at home are suitable. By the way, craftsmen who own this kind of needlework, never long to choose gifts. For any holiday, whether it's New Year or Eighth March, you can make something of this sort. For example, for the upcoming day of all lovers, you can make an original pillow resembling a chessboard, and the figures on it are hearts. A loved one will be very pleased. The manufacture of the pillow includes the following steps:
- assembling the squares of the front side,
- preparation of the tape for decoration,
- preparation of details for application,
- connection of the pillow parts.
- silk fabric of two colors (in this case, blue and gray),
- red felt or red cloth for applications,
- white satin ribbon,
So, let's get started. 1. We start with cutting. From blue and beige fabric, we cut out strips, 6x40 cm in size. Their number depends on the size of the pillow. The more bars, the correspondingly larger the pillow. In this case, 9 tapes were used. 2. Next, we sew the stripes, alternating them in color. The width of the seam is -1cm, the seams are pressed to one side. We again mark the finished cloth on the line, they must go, perpendicular to the already existing strips. We cut the canvas along these lines. 3. Sew the ribbons, shifting the pattern to one square so that the chess pattern will turn out. All the seams are pressed in one direction. From this panel cut out a square 35x35 cm. The main condition of a good appearance of the pillow -careful wet-heat treatment, after the stitches are removed, strip the part from the front side, using a presser. 4. We cut out the strips for edging the cushion, the size of 6 x 50. Grind them around the edges, the seams are ironed. 5. That's what we have to get out of. From one corner to the other, diagonally, we sew the tape and decorate it with a bow in the center. 6. By the size of the top part of the pillow we cut out its lower part. We connect them face-to-face inside, grind. The distance from the cut line to the seam is -1cm. In one side, leave a hole. 7. Then we turn it out and fill it with sintepon. The hole is closed with secret stitches. 8. From the fabric for applications, beautiful hearts are cut out. 9. These hearts and decorate the pillow. That's it, the pillow is ready!
