I had to measure and create a pattern for the actual cross (which was cut out of cream felt). I wanted the pillow to be one large piece sewn together on three sides so the cross would be one piece.
Then I pinned it and cut the felt. It was easy to cut out the blue fabric. I used the negative space from the felt pattern. 2 large rectangles and 4 small rectangles. Pieced it together and sewed. It was tricky at the corners and getting things really straight was harder than you’d think. I’m already considering other ways to do it that might be easier. Would love to see someone try this and use a different approach.
Also. I made my first invisible zipper! It was about time. Not hard at all.
I love how it turned out and am already planning on making second one. Happy to share the dimensions of the cross if you’re making one the same size. Just email me.
Have a great weekend! See you back Monday. Thanks for reading
