Each of us has a bunch of clothes lying around at home, which is a pity to throw away, and you won't wear them anymore. They are so pleasant to the body, but at the same time they have completely lost their attractive appearance. To extend the life of these products, you can cut them into shreds and sew from these pieces of fabric a wonderful pillow that will come in handy in any home.
We prepare tools for work:
- Sewing machine;
- Tissue remains;
From the fabric, cut strips 30 cm long, 5 cm wide. They will be equal to half the length of the pillow's diameter (you can choose these values yourself, based on what size the product you want).
Place a ruler obliquely in the middle of the flap and cut the fabric along this line. The part that is narrower will be the middle, the wider one will be located on the edge. The rest of the strip is best used across several pieces of fabric of a different color.
A rectangle made of another fabric is sewn onto the cut piece, from which half must then be cut off along a diagonal line. We sew the narrow part with a narrow one, a wide one with a wide one.
So, flap by flap, sew a circle. Having folded it in four, cut off the excess pieces of fabric that spoil the rounded shape.
Next, from larger pieces of fabric, sew a square larger in size than the resulting circle. By cutting the second circle out of it, you get the back of the pillow.
Take a rectangle made of fabric, lay out the rope on the seamy side, wrap it and secure it with pins or special tailor's needles on the front side.
Then we connect the two circles with the front sides and, having laid a rope in the fabric between them along the edge, we fasten it with pins or needles.
Sew all layers together using a sewing machine as close to the rope as possible.
Leaving 10-15 cm unstitched, turn the resulting round pillowcase right side out.
Stuff the circle with filler, and sew the ends of the rope by hand, hide the fabric joints with a blind seam.
Connect the top and bottom of the nearly finished cushion with a large button sewn to the center.
And now you have a wonderful ottoman that can be supplemented with a smaller pillow.
An ensemble of such pillows will be appreciated by both you and your children.
