Swirl pillow instructions:

  1. Place the ribbon in the middle of the pillow cover, slowly gluing the ribbon in place to create a swirling pattern.
  2. Cut the extra ribbon at the edge of the pillow.
  3. Allow the glue to fully dry before inserting pillow cover

Geometric trellis pillow instructions:

  1. Lay the pillow cover flat and place 4 pieces of ribbon to create a square pattern within the pillow that is 1-2" away from the edge of the pillow.
  2. Cut pieces of hemming tape to fit underneath the 4 pieces of ribbon.
  3. Use the iron to heat the hemming tape to glue the ribbon to the pillow.
  4. Cut excess ribbon that goes past the edge of the pillow. Using a glue gun place a drop of glue at the edges of the ribbon to help secure the ribbon to the pillow.
  5. Measure the middle of the 4 sides of the pillow and mark the middle points with chalk.
  6. Place 4 ribbon pieces diagonally from the 4 middle points, and attach the ribbon to the pillow using hemming tape and hot glue as done in step 3-4.
