Flange Pillow Materials List

Flange pillows are great fun and are used alot by many of our favourite designers. So what is a flange pillow? Its a pillow that has a border of flat fabric that goes around the outer edge of the pillow. This border is not sewn on; it is an effect created by sewing and stuffing the actual pillow a few inches away from the edge of the material. Season of Growth Later in the month I’m going to be showing a tutorial on how to make one, just like the photo above. To make the pillow just like mine, 9 1/2″ square, you will need the following supplies:

1. Your stitched piece. (My stitched piece was 5″ by 5″ square).

2. Some plain backing fabric (calico fabric is good for this).

3. Sewing thread and fabric to match your design.

4. Stuffing for the cushion.

5. Four buttons.

6. Pins, sewing scissors, a needle, and your sewing machine.

The class is going to be the weekend of the 21st & 22nd July so I hope you can join me then. In the meantime, happy stitching and feel free to leave me any comments if you have any questions.

  1. I have just the piece for this one. It’s been sitting in my stitched-but-unfinished pile for AGES waiting for the perfect technique. Thanks!

  2. Thank you Katrina for doing this tutorial–I love the look of the flanged pillows and can’t wait to try making one. Does my stitched piece need to be square?

  3. Just a note ladies – no, your stitched piece doesn’t have to be square, it can be rectangle but you would have to remember to allow for that in measuring out the fabrics🙂
