Two Done : now the super scary part!
Two are done!
I usually prefer to hand stitch the back of the binding down, but I machine stitch on pillows. It just seems like they need to be stronger - with fluffing and lounging pulling on the edges so much.
I stitch from the back side, with white or whatever matches in the bobbin. This is what the front ends up looking like. A line - but nice and neat.
I'm going to give them all a light soak before stuffing and gifting. See all that red?! Hopefully you don't hear screaming when they get dunked. I'm using for-darks Woolite, cold water, and a color catcher in a big bowl.
Wish me luck!
edit: Hurray!! Thank you Kona, you're awesome! Not a drip of red came off that huge red back - the water was clear and the color catcher totally white. That Kona red held up perfectly!
