Items Needed

ITEMS NEEDED

Along with the typical sewing notions like pins and scissors/rotary cutters, you will need the following:

GENERAL NOTES

  • Read all instructions completely before continuing project.
  • Unless otherwise noted, all seam allowances will be sewn at 1/4″.
  • This tutorial shows the use of a serger machine, but it is not required.
  • When cutting fabric, a rotary cutter is recommended for accuracy and ease of use.
Cut Fabric Panel

CUT FABRIC PANEL

  • Cut fabric panel in half, horizontally. Rotary cutters are recommended.
  • Cut off the extra “Farmall” red margins on either side.
Prepare Fabric

PREPARE FABRIC

  • Fold panel in half (print to print).
  • Use iron to press and remove all wrinkles.
Press & Pin Fabric

PRESS & PIN FABRIC

  • On both pieces, fold seam back 1/4″ with wrong sides together (the side opposite to the fold).
  • Press 1/4″ seam with iron. 
  • This side requires for a hole to be left open to allow for stuffing/batting and will be sewn closed at the end.
  • Lay flat again and pin three sides (making sure not pin the hole area) to prepare for sewing. 
Sew Seams

SEW SEAMS

  • Sew along the three edges while remembering to keep a section open to add stuffing/batting.
Serge Edges

SERGE EDGES (OPTIONAL)

  • Serge all three edges for extra strength and to cut off the extra fabric.
Stuff Pillow

STUFF PILLOW

  • Flip pillow right side out.
  • Add stuffing/batting to desired fluffiness.
  • Hand-sew opening closed using hand needle and thread (Invisible stitch encouraged — Click here for a tutorial).
