Last week I posted about my love of fretwork. Well I am happy to report that my DIY fretwork pillows look pretty darn chic and rang up at a whopping $10 a piece. If you are interested in trying your hand at a pillow or two the picture tutorial below should give you the general idea of how I went about it. If you need specific questions answer just let me know:)
A few tips:
- If using stitch witch, adhere the corners first & then iron the entire strip. When I ironed on my first strip the weight of the damp towel cause the originally straight line to become crooked.
- Use Steam A Seam rather than Stitch Witch because it will not move once placed on the pillow thereby eliminating the need for tip 1 & granting you a cleaner result.
- If possible, adhere design onto pillow without the fill in it. Since my project was for outdoor use, my pillow was not a slipcover but it would have been an easier process if I could have attached the tape to a flat surface.
