ruffled drop cloth pillow tutorial

 





 what you need
a drop cloth
a pillow insert
pins
scissors
sewing machine

first cut long strips twice the size of the pillow.
 then cut the pillow case cover, using the insert to measure the size you need, and put to one side.

with the long strips of fabric, fold the rough edges over and stitch along the edge.
 then when both edges are stitched, you need to make the ruffles, i did this by gathering the fabric, and pushing it under the presser foot of the sewing machine.
 then you need to pin it on to the pillow piece along the middle
 do the same with each strip of ruffles, i did 3.
 pin evenly on the pillow piece then use the machine to stitch on
 then you need to stitch the back part of the pillow on, pin the ruffles to one side so that it doesnt get caught when you are sewing.
 then turn the right way out, and press the ruffles down with an iron, and put the pillow insert in and your done.
