Today I made two small bolsters,
they are easy to make and I took a few
pictures to show you how I made them.
I used satin cotton material and took the
circumference from a container I thought to be
the right size.
To get the lines straight, I ironed it in the
width and in the length.
For this bolster I used an oval shape to put
on top of the material.
First I stitched some lace in the width on the material.
On both sides of the ironed line.
Hid the seam with some trimming and stitched
the oval into place.
Gathered lace around the oval shape.
Added a second layer.... of-course!
we can never have enough..
Then stitched the long sides together while making sure
the lace and trimming match.
Hemmed the edges.
I made the insert beforehand,
shorter than the cover.
With the insert in place, I marked where
it would be tied.
I marked each side equally
Then on that line I stitched two layers of lace
Next, to hide the raw edges I stitched on this trim.
Thread a ribbon through and pulled it closed
on both ends.
This is another bolster than the one with
an oval top, I will show that one later..
I received this magazine and Rachel's new book
in the post today, didn't have time yet to look through them.
I had to order the magazine because they don't sell this one here.
I loved the corset on the front page, and had to have it.
My name is Angela and I'm a magazine addict!
I just LOVE this dress!
It has so many pretty details on it, it looks antique
but it isn't, it's brand new!
there was only one in the shop
and it fits me! get this.. it cost me
It made my day...
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
