When it comes to decorative pillows, the levels of craftsmanship nearly outweighs the vast designs and patterns available. If you are ready to upgrade your interior and want to add some quality to your decor there are a few things you need to know to help you select the best pillows for your money. The most vital aspect in determining pillow quality is the exterior construction; this should give you great immediate insight into the overall quality of the pillow. You'd be surprised at the shady work you can detect simply by examining the seams. Are the stitches evenly spaced from the edges? Does the pattern uniformly align at the seams, is it aligned in the middle? An easy way to tell a mistake from a unique design element is to compare two or three of the same pillow while you shop to see if they are all the same, as they should be. Also spend time examining the shape, if it is supposed to be a square throw make sure that it is. Many massed producing, quantity-over-quality dealers churn out cheap uneven pillows that are just square-ish.
Neck pillows are also placed on couches and can have a design matching the throw pillows. Silk thread tassels that are of the same color as the velvet can be used to enhance throw pillows and look decorative. Middle Eastern throw pillows are popular for their exquisite floral embroidery. Colors used are predominantly popular in this region. These pillows are soft and are used on either coaches or chairs. An array of throw pillows on a bed also imparts an elegant look to the bedroom.
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.
