Pleated Pillow by Natalie May

Hey there Gang!

Over the last 12 months, I have been super lucky to be touring Australia as the Guest Artist for the Craft & Quilt Fair.  I’ve met so many awesome people, taught the same class 89 times and learned so much about fabric, art and quilting too!

One of the most popular questions I get asked about Lindys products is if it can be used on Fabric!  Well … the answer is YES!   Because Lindy’s is a DYE INK … it will DYE the fabric!  Can you just imagine the possibilities? I have tried it on Lycra, Cotton, Linen, Felt, Wool and so much more … but today, I’m going to use it on Calico!

I don’t know much about fabric and sewing – in fact – my Clever Trevor husband taught me to use the sewing machine but I had this idea in mind so had to make it happen!

I started with some strips of calico and used a selection of Lindy’s Starburst & Flat sprays to colour them.  I really saturated the fabric and then pegged it to my clothesline to dry!
Once dry, I ironed each piece and then ironed them in half to get a nice crease.

The next step was to stitch them to a backing sheet, overlapping a little, layering each piece before adding a back piece and stuffing it with ‘pillow stuffing stuff’!

So, it’s certainly not perfect, but I love it … and it’s custom made by me!
