Throw pillows can have instant
pizazz and style added to them by
adding the simple element of
fringe around the edges of your
pillow. Fringe does not always
mean "country" style pillows
because the right color
combination can be very modern
and stylish.
1. Decide on a shape and size for your throw pillow. Purchase
or create a pattern for your throw pillow.

2. Cut out the pattern or template once enlarged or adjusted to
the perfect size and shape. Remember to leave 1/2 inch to 1
inch for a seam allowance.

3. Pin the template or pattern for the throw pillows to the
material. Cut out two pieces of fabric that are exactly the same
size and shape. Cut out lengths of fringe that match each side
of your decorative throw pillow.

4. Lay one piece of fabric down right side up, place fringe
along edge side. Pin fringe down securely. Repeat for all sides
with fringe. Some decorative pillows have fringe on only 2 or 3
sides leaving the bottom plain. Lay the other side of the pillow
fabric right side down.

5.Pin the right sides of the fabric together - make sure to pin
the tassels in place securely. Plan the 1 or 2 inch long area
that you will leave open for turning and stuffing your throw
pillow. A good choice would be the bottom side of the pillow if it
has one.

5. Sew around the pinned and marked sections to create your
sew pillow. Turn the pillow right side out and stuff with batting,
stuffing, or your desired material. Some people also stuff with
feathers or shredded old t-shirts.

6. Sew up the small opening in your throw pillow used for
turning and stuffing.


*Create all designs, patchwork, bedding, or decorative
stitching before pinning and sewing the right sides together.
