Reunion Jelly Roll Sweetwater for Moda. Remember the point of this series is to see just how much you can make with a single jelly roll, other than a quilt.
Take strip one and cut two 16" long pieces.
Take strip two and cut two 16" pieces.
Sew the four strips together, alternating them, to create a single panel of fabric. Iron your seams and iron on a piece of fusible web.
Fold your panel up, matching strip seams:
Repeat for your lining fabric, without the fusible web, and make sure the wrong side is out when folding the cuff. Fold the cuff to the outside this time.
Next, sandwich your hanging panels between your pillow pieces, making sure the pillow pieces are right sides together. The hanging panels are long so I folded one end up and pinned so that I would not sew thru it accidentally.
Sew around your pillow pieces, leaving an opening at the end opposite the hanging panels. Clip your corners, turn right side out and iron. Your pillow piece should look like this:
Put your lining inside the outer bag, wrong sides together. Pin around the front and the sides. Insert your hanging panels into the back side of your bag between the two layers and pin in place. Take the whole contraption to your machine and sew around the top edge.
** side note: I did notice that because the table I sew on is wood that my thread catcher wanted to slide off the table. I'm thinking I need to maybe add a few dots of hot glue to the bottom of my pillow to make it non-slip. **
I'm going to continue to work with Reunion for this series, but remember you can find a bunch of different jelly rolls here.
