One of the reasons Sew4Home came into existence was our desire to get new people interested in sewing. We wanted to prove sewing was within anyone's reach， even if you'd never even turned on a sewing machine before. It's why we're so focused on providing detailed instructions with helpful photos and make-no-assumptions steps. It's also why we make it a point to showcase the wonderful world of fabric， so you can see how easy it is to dip in and pull out one trendy look after another. You (and I do mean YOU) can create projects that are just as cool... if not more so， than what you find in those high end catalogs and über expensive stores. Just remember one word： confidence. These cute little ragged edge pillows are super easy and a guaranteed confidence builder. "Ragging" is seen most often in quilts and throws. In generalaccent pillow case baby burlap decorative， it means the fabric panels are sewn together so the seams show on the outside rather than being hidden on the inside. After washing and drying， the seams gently fray or rag， producing a softly distressed look and feel.？family pillow cover
The trick to a good rag is to choose cotton and other natural， loose weave fabrics. These fabric substrates are more likely to ravel when washed and dried. A wider seam allowance is also common with this technique so you have more exposed edges， resulting is a deeper rag.？
We chose a great blend of cotton flannel prints that mimic the look of classic woolen patterns， adding bold buttons for the center tufting.
