Now we have this foam wedge pillow mendacity round that wanted a canopy. I assumed it’d make a superb tutorial to point out how you can make a canopy for an odd-shaped pillow. I’ll present how I made this one, and you’ll apply the steps to make one to your funky cushion. I did an envelope opening for ease of entry with out messing with a zipper.
For this large wedge pillow, I used 1 yard of this extra-wide sheeting material (with some left over). Be sure to prewash so that you don’t have any surprises after making your undertaking.
The Course of
If you happen to’re protecting an odd-shaped pillow, it’s going to be extra sophisticated than measuring out just a few rectangles. You’ll hint either side of the pillow to make a sample. Though within the photograph, I’m lining up the sting with the sting of the paper, don’t overlook you’ll want a little bit of room so as to add seam allowances.
Hint round either side utilizing a pencil. Your strains might be a bit wiggly and imprecise. The back and front of my pillow are squares (effectively, they’re really slight rectangles. I made certain that I marked the facet edges for later). The edges are triangles and the again is a rectangle.
Utilizing a transparent, gridded ruler, add 1/2″ seam allowances. That is the place you’ll get your strains crisper and cleaner. Minimize out your items.
For the facet that can have an envelope closure, discover the lengthwise middle line (I simply folded mine in half lengthwise to make a crease).
I added 1.5″ to the middle line and minimize off the remaining. This 1.5″ is 1″ for the overlap plus 1/2″ for the hem. For the reason that different facet would be the similar dimension, this may enable 2″ complete of overlap. You possibly can alter this in response to your preferences.
I’m pinning certainly one of my facet rectangle items to at least one facet of certainly one of my entrance/again squares (the place I marked the facet edges). I sewed it in place.
Then I sewed the facet triangle to the opposite entrance/again piece. It regarded like this. I repeated with the opposite facet triangle.
End the inside edges should you’d like to forestall fraying with washing. I serged mine (are you able to inform I hate to alter the thread? I simply went with inexperienced since it could be on the within!).
Subsequent I lined up the back and front items, centering and smoothing the triangle items beneath. (Folded open within the photograph above so you possibly can see.)
Right here I’ve the panels lined up and the triangle is hidden in between. I pinned the entrance fringe of the wedge pillow cowl.
I sewed the entrance fringe of the pillow closed. That is the sharp fringe of the triangle if seen from the facet.
All that’s left is the envelope opening. I did a small hem on one lengthy edge of every again piece by folding 1/4″ and urgent, then one other 1/4″.
Then I sewed it.
I overlapped the envelope items, ensuring the whole width was the width of the again of the pillow. Then I primarily based the items collectively.
The final step was to pin and sew that again piece to the opening of the remainder of the quilt. I turned it right-side out and inserted the pillow.
