Small Bolster Tutorial

September 15, 2012

Today I made two small bolsters,
they are easy to make and I took a few 
pictures to show you how I made them.

I used satin cotton material and took the 
circumference from a container I thought to be 
the right size.

To get the lines straight, I ironed it in the 
width and in the length.

For this bolster I used an oval shape to put
on top of the material.

First I stitched some lace in the width on the material.
On both sides of the ironed line.

Hid the seam with some trimming and stitched
the oval into place.

Gathered lace around the oval shape.

Added a second layer.... of-course!
we can never have enough..

Then stitched the long sides together while making sure 
the lace and trimming match.
Hemmed the edges.
Ironed it.

I made the insert beforehand,
shorter than the cover.

With the insert in place, I marked where 
it would be tied.

I marked each side equally 

Then on that line I stitched two layers of lace  

Next, to hide the raw edges I stitched on this trim.

Thread a ribbon through and pulled it closed 
on both ends.
This is another bolster than the one with 
an oval top, I will show that one later..

I received this magazine and Rachel's new book
in the post today, didn't have time yet to look through them.
I had to order the magazine because they don't sell this one here.
I loved the corset on the front page, and had to have it.
My name is Angela and I'm a magazine addict!

I just LOVE this dress!
It has so many pretty details on it, it looks antique
but it isn't, it's brand new!
there was only one in the shop
and it fits me! get this.. it cost me 
eleven dirhams...

It made my day...
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
