Note:You will need more fabric than the pillow directions call for and there is no exact amount of fabric because the tucks are a variable that you decide just how much the tucks will take up in fabric. For example, the 16" pillow shown with the close twisted tucks, used a 20" by the 45" width of the fabric (minus the trimmed selvedge) with very little trimmed off to make the pillow front requirement.
- Fabric -- the amount will vary as described above.
- Thread to match you fabric as closely as possible.
- Marking equipment that will vanish when you are finished
- Optional but very helpful -- Rotary Cutting Ruler to ensure that your lines are evenly spaced and square.
