I was recently asked by the shop owner at one of my consignment shops if I could make some outdoor pillows. So I bought some really pretty outdoor fabric and made up about a dozen pillows.
Unfortunately, I did not have time to do any tutorials or pictures, but I thought I would share with you a new stitch I learned. In the past when I made pillows, I would either close them with a machine stitch or hand-stitch, but the seam was always visible. Neat, but visible, no doubt. I didn't know any other way!
Well, I finally bothered to learn how to close pillow cases (or stuffed animals, for that matter) with an invisible seam. It's called a blind-ladder stitch, and I found it pretty easy. So I'm posting a YouTube video here so you can learn how, as well.
Give it a try, your projects will look so professional!
