The best thing about them is that you can use them anywhere around the house on the couches, armchairs and sofas. Their small size and fancy decorations of embroidery, cords, beads and seams make them a perfect decoration item, not forgetting that they are made in a wide range of colors that leave you with a wide selection to choose from. The guiding factor for you as you check out the colors should be the color of the walls and wall hangings as well as the other rugs around the house.
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.
Another important quality indicator is the sturdiness of the trim. Cheap throw pillows have a tendency to unravel at the seams. Though double edge stitching is not common, it is a great sign of a quality throw pillow. For aesthetic reasons many well crafted pillows will only have a single stitch so don't rule these out completely. Just make sure that the trim is not already unraveling and that you can't pull it apart with a quick on the spot quality check before you buy. When shopping online this is a hard thing to detect but many websites now offer a zoom feature which will let you get close enough to see the trim quality. On the upside, shopping on major sites usually has the advantage of showing user reviews, make sure you read these to see what other customers experiences have been with the pillow you have in mind.
