Various designs can be incorporated while making throw pillows. Holiday prints can be used if pillows are meant for Christmas celebration. Animal or cartoon motifs may appeal to kids and can be used as throw pillows. Fabric paint also can be used to decorate throw pillows. It can be painted by either brush or stencil. Some of them could be sponge painted or rubber-stamped.
Making throw pillows is an easy, yet enjoyable procedure, and after you've learned the running stitch and the backstitch, they are a breeze to work out. There are two different ways to do this; with a pillow form and with fiberfill stuffing. Either way is fine, it's just a matter of how you want to do it and how you feel most comfortable. First, to be able to choose what kind you want to make, you will want to know what a pillow form and fiberfill are, and the pros and cons between the two. First off, we have a pillow form. Basically a pillow form is a non decorative, rather ugly pillow that is stuffed inside of your fabric. It helps your pillow keep it's form, plus they're easy to use, especially for a beginner. The cons are that they can be rather expensive if you don't keep an eye out for sales and good deals.
As you shop for the pillows, check to see that the casings are removable and of a washable material. This way, you will have no problem using them in a house full of small children who have a tendency of soiling everything around them. Some casings will require to be hand-washed while others will be best dry-cleaned. Depending on what you can afford, go for the best.
