GIGGLE Throw Pillow

 

Materials

1 12 “ x 16” pillow form

5/8 yard fabric

1 Friendship Panel by Wing and a Prayer (Timeless Treasure Fabrics)

 

From panel cut:  GIGGLE block to measure 6” x 14”

From fabric cut:

2 - Width of Fabric x 3 ½”

2  -6” x 1 ¾”

2 – 10 ¼” x 12 ½”

 

Sew one 6 “ x 1 ¾” piece to each short end of the GIGGLE block.

 

Mark the midpoint of each 3 ½” x WOF piece.  Run a double gathering stitch on both long sides of each piece.  Gather.  Find your center mark and pin (right sides together) to the center of the GIGGLE piece.  Adjust gathers, fitting until your gathered piece is the same length as your GIGGLE piece.  Pin and stitch (be sure you lock your beginning and ending stitching).  Topstitch about 1/8” from the edge of the Giggle piece to ensure your gathered fabric lays flat.  Repeat on opposite side of the giggle piece.

 

Back (10 ¼” x 12 ½” pieces)

Turn under one 12 ½” end by ½”, press.  Turn under ½” again, press and stitch.  Repeat on second piece.  Lay one piece on a table with the wrong side up.  Overlapping the finished edges. Place the second piece (wrong side up) on top of the first so the length of both pieces is 12 ½”.  Stitch together in the seam allowance, where the pieces overlap.

 

With right sides together, stitch the back piece to the front piece.  Turn right side out.  Insert pillow form.
