Hello there! 🙂
This is my first attempt in sewing a pillow and using a screen for printing. So, just a little bit of a disclaimer ; this tutorial is not sponsored in any way. And I am not a dressmaker so i do not know the correct terms in sewing 🙂 But I hope you’ll have fun reading this tutorial.
These are the materials needed :
1. a cloth (depending on the size you want)
2. a pair of scissors
3. a chalk for marking the cloth
6. a zipper
9. textile paint
^_^ let’s get started
First off, measure your pillow and mark your cloth like shown above. Then cut it making sure you leave a bit of space for the hem.
Then mark where you want your zipper to be. Actually. I don’t know what I was thinking why I decided to put the zipper there. I should’ve put it at the bottom.
Anyways. I sewed the zipper first. Then the rest of the sides of the pillow case.
You must have noticed how the stitch is not that aligned. Sorry haha I got nervous sewing it through the sewing machine. And I used a neon orange thread because I was feeling that neon vibe. 🙂
SO after sewing all the sides and making sure every stitch is fine I measured my pillow in it if it actually fits and here’s how it looked.
haha hurrah!! so off to the failing part 🙂
yeah, it was supposed to look like that but when I started printing , I think I put too much of the paint and it ended up bleeding all around. That’s why I took my handy-dandy brush to smudge it all over. Instead of feeling like a failure I tried to fix it. Yay for me.
and now, it looked like this. 🙂 Maybe next time I’ll get it right ^_^ because there’s always a first time 🙂
