Directions
1.
Using a basting stitch (L=4.0), sew two rows of stitching ¼ inch and 3/8 inches from the edge of both sides of the 3 x24 inch strip.
2.
Gather the strip evenly to create a 3 inch by 12 inch strip.
3.
Sew a piece of entredeux on each side of the strip.
4.
Trim to a scant ¼ inch and zigzag over the edge using a tight zigzag (L-1, W-3.5). This will cause the seam allowance to roll and create a beautiful and secure edge called a “rolled seam.”
5.
On the front side, use a tiny zigzag stitch(L-2.0m W=2.0) to hold the fabric away from the holes in the entredeux.
6.
Sew a piece of white batiste onto each side of the puffing strip.
7.
Trim the seam allowance to a scant ¼ inch.
8.
Set the sewing machine for a close zigzag (L=1.0, W=3.5).
9.
Zigzag over the seam allowances. The zig should go into the fabric and the zag should go over the edge.  The extra step of sewing on the right side is not necessary.
10.
Draw a line on each piece of 5 x 12 batiste lengthwise at 2 from the edged of the center piece on each side.
11.
Center a piece of lace on this line
12.
Using a tiny zigzag stitch (L=1.5, W=1.5) zigzag over each side of the lace.
13.
Cut away the fabric from behind the lace being careful not to cut the stitches.
14.
Using the size 100 top stitching needle and a pin stitch, stitch on the right side of the piece along the lace. The straight part of the stitch should go along the edge of the lace and the “teeth” should go into the lace. If you do not have a pin stitch, you can use a regular zigzag stitch.
15.
Draw a line in the center between the lace and the center puffing.
16.
Place stabilizer centered on the back of the fabric behind this line.
17.
Sew any decorative stitch along the line.
18.
Wash out the stabilizer and markings. Press the piece.
19.
Square it to 11 x 11 inches.
20.
Using a ¼ inch seam allowance and regular white sewing thread, sew the 2 x 11 inch strips to the top and bottom of the piece.
21.
Press the seam allowances away from the center of the piece.
22.
Using a ¼ inch seam allowance, sew the 14 inch pieces to each side of the piece. Trim off any excess if needed.
23.
Press the seam allowances away from the center piece.    
24.
To make a pillow, sew the pillow back to the front wrong sides together using a ¼ inch seam allowance. Leave about 3 inches on one side for turning.
25.
Clip the corners and turn the pillow right side out.
26.
Stuff the pillow and sew the opening shut.
