A pillow is one of the easiest and fastest sewing projects, and is great for beginners. My nine year old recently agreed to learn to use the sewing machine and her first project was a pillow. She likes to sew by hand but has been a bit afraid of the machine up until now. Might have something to do with the fact that the machine is almost as big as she is? 😀 I need to dig out my old machine for her – it’s smaller and much less intimidating for a beginner.
Anyway, I decided it was time to share a tutorial on how to make a pillow with an envelope closure. It’s so easy and fast and I assure you if you can sew a straight line with a machine you can make a pillow. And if you can’t sew a straight line with a sewing machine then you probably just need a guideline added to show you where to line up your fabric 😉
