Instructions

Step One

For each pillow, cut 2 – 17″ squares from your out fabric. Cut 1 – 17″ square from your lining fabric. Cut 1 – 17″ square from your batting.

Step Two

Use marking pencil to draw your spider web on the front of your pillow. Make a dot slightly off-center on the front of your pillow. Add lines coming out from your dot. Then draw curved lines circling your center spot.

Step Three

Layer front fabric, batting, and lining and pin

Choose a basic decorative stitch on your machine that will give a heavier look than regular sewing. Stitch over all of your marked lines.

If your sewing machine does not have any decorative stitches, you can use a regular stitch and sew over your lines 3 or 4 times to get a thicker looking stitch.

Step Four

Use glow-in-the-dark machine embroidery thread when sewing on the black fabric. (You can do this on a regular sewing machine.)

Step Five

With right sides together, use 1/2″ seam allowance to sew around all four sides of your pillow. Leave an opening in one side large enough to add your pillow insert.

Step Six

Hand-stitch closed after adding pillow insert.
