HOW TO MAKE: a Reading Pillow

This Reading Pillow has a Pocket in Front to keep a Book in. Also a Handle to carry it around and we used a soft Fleece Fabric for the back which makes this a comfy and fun Pillow.

Once your Embroidery Design is stitched out, place the Bias Binding to cover the top edge of you Design. Secure with a straight stitch on your sewing machine

Place the Embroidery on Top of the Contrast Fabric (lower bottom) pin and secure with a straight stitch

Fold The Pillow Sleeve in half to determine the top center. Pin the "handle" in place and secure with a straight stitch

Place the fabric to the back by folding the 2 x pieces in half. They should overlap in the middle of the pillow. Secure with pins and then with a straight stitch.

Cut the corners as indicated below to create neat corners when the sleeve is turned outside in.

Your pillow sleeve is complete. More specific details on the exact measurements and Bias Binding are included in your Download. Enjoy making this Fun Project!
