Toile Pillow

Steps:7
Toile -- the French word for cloth -- refers to a fabric, generally cotton, that has been printed with themed designs. Cotton toiles in elaborate patterns were popularized in France and England during the early 19th century as an affordable alternative to silks and brocades. Today, Martha uses an antique toile imprinted with traditional patterns to make an accent pillow. In order to make as many pillows as possible from the fabric, she covers only the front of the pillow with the toile and uses a neutral chintz for the back.
Materials
  • Antique toile
  • Solid chintz, for back of pillow
  • 22-inch pillow insert
  • Sewing machine with zipper foot
  • No. 16 cable cord
  • Fabric scissors
  • Fiskars acrylic ruler with grid (6 by 24 inches)
  • Pins
  • Needle
  • Tailor's chalk
  • Thread
  • Iron and ironing pad
