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.
So now that we've considered the different types of stuffing for pillows, let's get down to business and do the actual preparation and sewing part. For preparation, let's collect the materials first. Since the pillow is such a simple project, not many materials are required. Start off with the fabric for the pillow, and your choice of a form or fiberfill. Then get some matching thread, some hand needles and a couple of pins, scissors, and perhaps something to mark your fabric with.
There are different kinds of pillows available, but the one people would most commonly know is the bed pillow. These are rectangular pillows that differ in length depending on the size of the bed that they are used on. Generally they are used inside a pillow case to help keep them clean. Bed pillows are used to support the head and neck when sleeping or lying in bed.
