For this project, you will need 3/8 yards woven fabric, 1-1/2 yards of 3-inch-wide silk ribbon, 1-1/2 yards of 1-inch-wide silk ribbon, 5/8 yard silk string, Poly-Fil, basic sewing essentials (scissors, pins or binder clips, thread, sewing machine) and Fray Check (not shown).
Lay one of the 1-inch ribbons directly on top of one of the 3-inch ribbon pieces. Match up the side edge. Place the ribbon on top of one pillow pattern piece, in the very center of the pillow along the side edge. Pin in place and then sew along the side edge using a 1/4” seam allowance. Repeat for other ribbon pieces on the other side of the pillow.
Place one pattern piece on top of the other pattern piece, right sides together. Pin around all side edges. Make sure the ribbon is safely secure in the middle. Sew all around the sides, leaving a 4-inch opening for turning right-side out.
Cut a 4” piece of 1-inch-wide ribbon, and wrap it around the bow center. The entire center of the bow should be held nice and tight in this wrap-around ribbon bow center. When you get to the end of the ribbon center, fold the raw edge of the 1-inch bow 1/4” towards the inside, and pin down. Whipstitch to secure.
