I was determined to finally use the pillow form this weekend and get it out of my sewing space. I kept going back and forth between different fabrics and designs and even considered just using one big piece of fabric - it was really looking like this pillow form would be spending more time in the package.
So, I went back to my quilting roots - QAYG! I cut a piece of batting at 28" square and a piece of backing a bit larger than that. I grabbed a bunch of low(er) volume(ish) fabrics and just started putting it all together. (Note: if I was making anything other than a pillow, I wouldn't have added the backing until the end but since the backing would be hidden inside the pillow, I figured it didn't matter if I just added it at this point.)
I trimmed the top to 25" before adding the envelope back but as you can see I still had lots of extra room despite it being a 26" form. I even redid the stitching with a larger seam but it still had tons of room.
The pillow is now living on the "floor couch" in the tiny room that my daughters refer to as "the library" - they read so many books set in the olden days that I guess they think all houses have a library! Of course, they also think I grew up in the olden days so . . .
