--1 piece contrast fabric, 11” x 42”
--Optional trim, 2” x 42” piece of fabric or rickrack or other trim
Lay cut edge of trim against cut edge of hem, keeping edges even. Lay body of pillow right side down lengthwise on top of the trim and hem, matching cut edges. Pin to hold.
Stitch along cut edge with a ¼” seam. I like to serge mine with a 4-thread overlock to keep the satin from unraveling. You can also sew with a standard sewing machine, then zigzag over the raw edges of the seam allowance or trim with pinking shears to prevent raveling.
Press seam flat with a COOL iron (some satin fabrics are extremely heat-sensitive), then open flat and press the body of the pillow away from the hem/trim. Cut off the excess hem/trim, keeping the corners square.
