Free Sewing Project Idea: How to Make a Colorful Machine Embroidery Pillow

How to sew a Colorful Machine Embroidery scented Pillow

Practice your sewing skills (and threading the machine) while you make this colorful pretty pillow using seven of your favorite colors of thread. Stuff dried lavender or your favorite potpourri in it before hand stitching it closed for a scented sachet pillow!

How to Make a Colorful Machine Embroidery Pillow
You Will Need:
two 7"x9" pieces of cotton fabric
seven spools of thread in your choice of color
craft stuffing
basic sewing needs
How to sew a Colorful Machine Embroidery scented Pillow Gather up your supplies. I wanted a small pillow so I cut my fabric 7"x9", but you can make your pillow any size you would like. I also used a printed calico cotton fabric.
Select your favorite embroidery stitch on the sewing machine. Many sewists do not even use the embroidery part of their sewing machine. I know I have only used it twice in the past four years with all the sewing I do. So I thought of how I could utilize it and I came up with this colorful craft.

Select your seven favorite stitches on the machine!

If you think you can not sew a straight line without a guide, my suggestion would be to measure and draw seven lines on your fabric with equal distance apart from each other.

You do not need to change the bobbin thread color, keep that the same color as the fabric for all of your sewing for this project.

Begin with one color thread and one embroidery stitch and sew down the line. Be careful not to "pull" or "push"  the fabric, doing so will make the embroidery stitches to look different.

Continue changing the embroidery stitch and thread color for each line until you have completed all seven colors.
Place the front and back pieces of the pillow PRETTY SIDES TOGETHER and pin around the pillow. Leave a 4" opening at the bottom center of the pillow.
Stitch around the pillow using the pressure foot as your guide. Don't forget to leave the opening!

Clip corners.

Turn the pillow pretty side out and gently poke out the corners.

Stuff the pillow with craft stuffing.

Hand stitch the opening closed.
