How to sew a diagonal striped pillow

Learn how to make a cool diagonal throw pillow

I’ve been spotting some fun ways to use a stripe and not in a traditional vertical or horizontal position. Placed at various diagonals, the simple stripe can be turned into something new and interesting. For my latest Laura Ashley project, I thought it would be fun to take their awning stripe and try it in a new way for a unique throw pillow.

Materials: Laura Ashley striped fabric, scissors, thread, iron, sewing machine, pillow stuffing.

Step 1: Cut out fabric in squares with different grain lines. I made my pillow 20″ x 20″

Step 2: Press squares in half and then cut on the crease. Fold, press, and cut one of the pieces again.

Step 3: Arrange fabric how you want to sew it. Play with the different grains.

Step 4: Sew together. I pressed the seams open and then edge stitched on either side of the seam.

Step 5: Repeat 1-4 for back of pillow.

Step 6: Sew together front and back leaving a small hole.

Step 7: Stuff and hand sew small hole.

Step 8: Enjoy!
