My current bolster pillows were wrapped in Battenberg Lace trimmed curtains and tied with grosgrain ribbon as shown below. So, I just unwrapped them to followed Amy's tutorial.
As part of her Burlap Week @ WhisperWood Cottage, Amy provides a detailed yet simple tutorial for her "Faux Sew" burlap bolster pillow. Supplies include a bolster pillow, burlap scrap material, scissors, jute twine and a straight upholstery needle.
As per Amy's tutorial, I eyeballed the amount of fabric and then rolled the fabric around the bolster pillow with the finished burlap edge overlapping the unfinished edge by approximately 2". With my upholstery needle and twine, I wove my needle up and over the seam from end to end...really easy.
I then wove the needle through in 1" sections around the entire end of both sides allowing me to gather the ends.
Project #6 Complete!
