Sewing an owl pillow with your own hands, more preciselypillow cases on a sofa cushion, is not something particularly difficult. The process of work will take quite a bit of time, but the result will be an excellent product that will decorate the interior of the living room or children's room. An interesting applique in the form of a cute night bird will be an excellent addition to the product itself. Pillows are an integral part of every house and a necessary attribute for the comfort of every person. To date, you can buy absolutely any product made of different materials and having a completely different design. But it is much more pleasant to have in the house a pillow made by own hands in the style corresponding to personal tastes and the general interior of the house. Today we will sew an owl pillow, or more precisely, a pillowcase on a pillow with the application of this bird. For sewing a pillow with the image of an owl with our own hands, we need to prepare materials and sewing tools.
- Sewing scissors and zigzag scissors.
- Material fleece or other substrate for application.
- Sewing pins.
- Two small buttons (choose at your discretion).
- Tape for loops.
- Different types of fabric, which will be required for the pillowcase itself, as well as for the elements of the application.
- A small piece of felt.
- Mouline, thread for embroidery.
- Special adhesive for textiles.
In order to sew a pillowcase, we needdetails on the front side, as well as the rear. The front side is a square piece of cloth measuring thirty centimeters wide and thirty centimeters long. On all sides must necessarily leave an additional one centimeter. This will be allowances for seams. The back of the pillowcase consists of two parts of a rectangular shape. The height of their calculation is quite simple. It is necessary to take the length of the square, which we cut out to give the pillowcases (thirty-two centimeters), add to it another five or six centimeters and divide the total by two. To cut out the applique, we'll take the pattern that you see in the picture below. We must first cut out all the individualdetails of the pattern, then transfer them to the fabric intended for each part of the application and cut. We need to prepare all the details in a single copy, only for an owl we need to cut out two identical elements, leaving one centimeter for the allowances. All elements, except for the owl, as well as felt elements - beak and branch, are cut out also from non-woven (duplicated using an iron). Two parts of the body of the bird we need to sew. First we put them together, face sides inside and connect together with the help of sewing pins. Now you need to sew, leaving a small opening for the owl to rotate, about three to four centimeters. Now the allowances that we left on the seams,carefully cut with scissors. It is best to do this with special scissors zig-zag, but you can use ordinary scissors, only you need to make small bends on the bends. It remains to turn the finished part and iron. We need to attach all the elements of the application to our pillowcase. First of all, we place the detail of the body of the owl, and also the branch on the pillowcase and pin the sewing pins. We sew the owl to the pillowcase. Before sewing the remaining elementsThe sewing machine function should be set to the sewing function for sewing appliqués. In our case, it is under the thirteenth number, but it all depends on the typewriter. For pupils of a bird we will take felt, from which we will cut two small mugs, the diameter of which is about half a centimeter. We glue them, using the glue for textiles. To the picture on the pillowcase was holistic, we need to sew the green leaves to the branch. We tidy up the leaves, as in the previous case, with a machine stitch for applique. To the little girl turned out cute and cute, threads a mulina we'll make her cilia, and on the machine we'll stitch the paws. On our application there is also a small bird. We also sew it to the pillowcase with an engine stitch. We glue the beak in the form of a triangle with the help of a textile glue, which we have already used in our application. We just paint eyeballs with a birdie with acrylic paint, which is often used in textile work. We take threads of a moulin and embroider wings. Now we begin to sew a pillowcase. First, we take one of the parts of the back of the pillowcase, a rectangle on which the buttonholes will be. We will make them from tapes. We need to make two pieces of tape, the length of each of them should be from ten to twelve centimeters. Fold them in this way, as we see in the photo, and puncture them with pins. The edge of the rectangle, to which we sweep the loops, is bent twice and is ironed well. Carefully we spend everything on the typewriter. As a result, we should get this kind of view from the inside of the rectangle with its eyelets. To the edge of the loop does not unfold, we need itit is necessary to sew in the place where the sewing pin is stabbed. We take the second part of the same side, the rectangle on which the buttons will be sewn, and we process its edge, as in the first case. We proceed to connect the front and back sides of the pillowcase. We take its front part and the rectangle of the back part, on which the loops are located. Fold them face-to-face with each other and chop off the sewing pins. Similarly, we proceed with the second rectangle - the second part of the rear part. Now we sew and cut the corners obliquely. The edges of the product we sweep with the function of a sewing machine - the suture seam. It remains to turn the product out, iron it well and sew on the buttons. The pillowcase is ready. This pillow will be an excellent decoration and pride for you.
