СообщениеGypsy Romance: 3-D Triangle Pillows



Truth be told, these pillows are not actually triangles, they are
tetrahedrons. But not only is that impossible to say, it sounds like a
scary flying dinosaur - not what it really is: a cute pyramid pillow. We
found these unique pillow forms from online resource, Downlite. Each
pillow (we provide templates for a small 14" and a large 16") is made up
of 16 triangles, and because we paid extra attention in Geometry class,
we were able to come up with a layout that, when folded and stitched
together into its final 3-D shape, has different patterns aligned at
every seam. Like a little tetrahedron Rubik's Cube.





We thank the folks at Downlite for sending us their non-scary tetrahedron pillow forms, and invite you to take a stroll through their website.
It was impressive to find out they are a 100-year-old family business
based in the USA. It can be hard to find well made, reasonably priced
down products, so we were delighted to come across this site.

Our thanks also to Michael Miller Fabrics for providing all the beautiful Gypsy Bandana fabric from the Gypsy Jewel colorway. You can find it in store and online now, including at Fat Quarter Shop, Fabric.com and Quilt Home. Take a look at our interview with Val Pillow and Anne Maxfield to find out more about the creative spirits who bring these fabulous collections to life.

Sewing Tools You Need



Fabric and Other Supplies




We have shown the minimum fabric required. However, If you are
planning to fussy cut designs for each triangle, you should consider
buying ½ yard of each fabric for the prints instead of ¼ yard.

16" Pillow



  • ¼ yard EACH of 44-45" wide PRINT fabric in THREE coordinating designs; we
    used Gypsy Bandana in Orange Tonal Kaleidoscope, Red Gypsy Paisley and
    Kiwi Kaleidoscope by Pillow & Maxfield for Michael Miller Fabrics

  • ¼ yard of 44-45" wide SOLID accent fabric; we used Moda's cotton velvet in Hunter Green
    NOTE: You don't have to use a velvet, but adding in a texture with the smoothness of the cottons is a wonderful combination.
  • One 16" 3-D triangular down pillow insert; we used the 16" novelty pillow from from Downlite
  • One 11" invisible zipper; we used Coats & Clark

14" Pillow



  • ¼ yard EACH of 44-45" wide PRINT fabric in THREE coordinating designs; we
    used Gypsy Bandana in Green Firefly, Sapphire Gypsy Paisley and Yellow
    Kaleidoscope by Pillow & Maxfield for Michael Miller Fabrics

  • ¼ yard of 44-45" wide SOLID accent fabric; we used Moda's cotton velvet in Hunter Green
  • One 14" 3-D triangular pillow insert; we used the 14" novelty pillow from from Downlite
  • One 9" invisible zipper; we used Coats & Clark



Both Pillows



  • All purpose thread
  • See-through ruler
  • Fabric pen or pencil
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
  • Tape measure
  • Straight pins

Getting Started



  1. Download and print one or both of the 8½" x 11" pattern sheets: 14 inch Triangle Template and/or 16 inch Triangle Template.
    IMPORTANT: You must print these PDF files at 100%. DO NOT SCALE to fit the page.
  2. Cut out the template pieces along the solid line.
  3. Following the diagram on each printout, tape the two triangle halves together to form one triangle. Do NOT overlap.
  4. Using the 16 inch Triangle Template, cut 16 triangles for the 16" pillow - four triangles from each of your four fabrics (Orange Tonal Kaleidoscope, Red Gypsy Paisley, Kiwi Kaleidoscope and Hunter Green Velvet in our sample).
  5. Using the 14 inch Triangle Template, cut 16 triangles for the 14" pillow - four triangles from each of your four fabrics (Green Firefly, Sapphire Gypsy Paisley,Yellow Kaleidoscope and Hunter Green Velvet in our sample).

  6. When cutting each triangle, your fabric's print should be symmetrically placed within the triangle template.


At Your Sewing Machine & Ironing Board



  1. For our instructions, we are using the 14" pillow as our sample. The steps are the same to create the 16" pillow.
  2. Collect one each of the three printed fabric triangles and one solid triangle. Group these into four sets of four.
  3. Following the diagram below for fabric placement, we are going sew
    each set together to create four identical larger triangles.
    NOTE: Design
    placement is important. As we mentioned above, our pattern creates its
    own little "triangle Rubik's Cube" with no matching designs facing one
    another.


  4. The solid triangle is in the middle. To start, pair up the solid
    triangle (A) with the print triangle aligned to its base side (B). Pin
    these two pieces right sides together along the base. Stitch together,
    using a ½" seam allowance.
  5. Next, pin the right print rectangle (C) to the right side of the
    solid triangle. Pin these two pieces right sides together along the
    base. Stitch together, using a ½" seam allowance.
  6. Finally, pin the left print rectangle (D) to the right side of the
    solid triangle. Pin these two pieces right sides together along the
    base. Stitch together, using a ½" seam allowance. Press the seam
    allowances of each seam towards the outside of the now larger triangle.


  7. Repeat steps 4-6 to create three more four-piece triangle panels with the remaining three sets of triangles.
  8. Arrange the four finished triangular panels as shown in the diagram... three facing up and the center one facing down.

  9. With the right sides together, you now need to pin and stitch three ½" seams to assemble the panels.
  10. Following the diagram below, stitch Panel 1 to Panel 4, then stitch
    Panel 2 to Panel 4, and finally stitch Panel 3 to Panel 4. You will now
    have one large sewn triangle.

  11. Fold this large triangular panel in half lengthwise, right sides
    together, so that the left side of the bottom edge is on top of the
    right side of the bottom edge.

  12. Sew the 9" invisible zipper into the center of this bottom seam.

    NOTE: If you are new to invisible zippers, don't worry, they are easier than you think. Take a look at our tutorial, Invisible Zippers Are Your Friends .
  13. When your zipper is in place and the bottom seam sewn, open the
    zipper about half way. Otherwise... you won't have a way to turn the
    pillow casing right side out!
  14. Now we are getting into the 3-D part, so stay with me.
  15. Fold the right edge of the upper triangular panel down to meet the right edge of the lower triangular panel.

  16. Pin together and stitch, using a ½" seam allowance.

  17. Finally, fold the left edge of the upper triangular panel down to meet the left side of the lower triangular panel.

  18. Pin together and stitch, using a ½" seam allowance.
  19. You now have a four-sided, three-dimensional triangular pillow casing.
  20. Trim away the seam allowance at all four pointed corners of the pillow casing.
  21. Turn the pillow casing inside out through the zipper opening.
  22. Push out the four pointed corners of the pillow casing, using a
    long, blunt ended tool, like a large knitting needle or a chopstick.
  23. Stuff in the 14" triangular pillow insert and close the zipper. The
    pillow form is down filled, so it will 'smush' nicely to fit through the
    opening.
  24. Line up the pointed ends of the pillow insert into each of the four pointed corners of the pillow casing. Fluff.
  25. As we mentioned above, the steps to create the 16" pillow are the same, just be sure to use an 11" zipper.
