    Ticket 18627 When you measure your pillow form do you add the 1/2” to all four sides for the seam allowance or just use the use the exact measurements of the form itself to create a tighter fit?

      Dear Laura,

      Thank you for your patience. In regards to your question-

      This actually comes down to personal preference. I like to use exact measurements for a tighter fit, however I believe our instructor adds the seam allowance to all sides.

    How do you finish the final edge of pillow once it is mostly sewn and filled?

    Would be interested in how to close up the last side after you have the pillow inside its cover – especially when using a foam pillow form.
