Erin from Sewbon shares a tutorial over at Therm O Web showing how to make an envelope pillow with contrast fabric trim around the edges. You can make the trim yourself out of any cotton fabric, with Heat n Bond holding it together. Maybe I just choose weird color schemes for my house, but I rarely can find premade trim in the colors I want. Making your own trim opens up a world of possibilities for coordinating your pillow to your decor. On a sidenote, I met Erin at Sewing Summit last week. She is totally a doll, y’all!! Go to Therm O Web to find her tutorial.
