Pillow Flange with Cutouts

December 20, 2018

Pillows with a small, flat flange detail are very popular, and a pretty option instead of using welt cord. A pillow flange is created by inserting a flat, finished strip of fabric into the seam. The flange can stop-and-start at the corners, or be sewn together and mitered where the corners meet. 

I've created another option for flange pillows; a bow tie detail!  This is made by creating a cutouts in the flange, which is placed at each corner and hand stitched.  See this video for a quick lesson: 

You can view the how-to instructions below which were published in Bespoke Soft Furnishings Magazine. If you make a pillow using this tutorial, please share!  I would love to see your pillow creations.
