Video: How to Make a Smocked Cuddle® Throw Pillow (& Free Throw Pillow Pattern)

Season 10 of Sew Together Tuesday is in full swing, and this week’s tutorial is one of the most unique projects we’ve featured!  

Teresa heads to Linda Z’s Sewing Center in Arlington Heights, Illinois, where she’ll share how to use Cuddle® fabrics for smocking.

What’s smocking? It’s the process of gathering fabric so that it has a grid-like, stretchy quality that’s both visually captivating and feels irresistible!

Teresa will show step-by-step how to create this fun, three-dimensional look, then how you can use it for a beautiful throw pillow (scroll down to download our free pattern).

She'll use Cheryl Whited's "Smock It To Me" as a reference, and you can get your own copy from Muppin.com (Cheryl might just stop by as a special guest, too!).

Happy sewing!
