trim for pillow..help!
My grandson's class is selling pillows with the class picture on front (fundraising). My daughter asked me to make one. Everything came with the kit, but with no instructions. (his teacher said there were no instructions). She also knows nothing about sewing. My grandson goes to a school in the next county, so I know no one else who is making these to talk to.
I'm not sure about the kind of trim I was given to use. It is made of fabric, but is the kind that you would use to bind a baby quilt panel (2 pieces of fabric tape all along the top where you insert the panel in between (looks like wide bias tape).
Is this kind of trim going to look ok? Can I place the front and back of pillow wrong sides together and insert them between this trim (tape)? I've made a few pillows years ago, but made my own trim. I know I have to leave one side open to insert the pillow form.
I'm afraid of mine looking so terrible that no one will want to buy it.
