A casual, one-of-a-kind throw pillow is the perfect final touch to a beautiful room. With our kit, you can choose the perfect colors and make this easy, fast pillow cover on a rigid heddle loom. It uses four colors of 3/2 Perle Cotton for the warp set at 12 or 12.5 ends per inch. The weft is Universal Yarns' Bamboo Bloom Handpaint, a variegated blend of rayon from bamboo, wool, and acrylic. It has thick and thin areas and we've made the most of these by pulling loops of it above the surface of the fabric for even more texture. The finished cover is for a 14" square pillow form.
You will need:
- 1 skein Bamboo Blook Handpaint
- 3/2 Perle Cotton: 1 mini cone main color; 1 oz each of 3 additional colors
- 16.5" weaving width and 12.5 dent rigid heddle or 17.25" weaving width and 12 dent rigid heddle
- 3 shuttles
- 14" pillow form
- needle and thread or sewing machine
- optional: 2 buttons
We wove our pillow cover using Bamboo Bloom Handpaint color 305 Kimono with main Perle Cotton color 60 Duck and accents 128 Quince, 91 Flaxon, and 207 Oak.
