Clamshell Pillow

More Curves Class project goodness today, this time in the form of the clamshell pillow project.

I love this pillow so much I think I will make another one over the weekend using the same feature fabrics on a different shade of linen.

Sewing the curves was not too bad, I was annoyed that my last row of clamshells sat a little low and the stitching didn't catch the ones above.  I didn't notice this until after the pillow puffed it all out so I ended up topstitching the bottoms of the offending section to stabilise it.  I will know better on the next one.

I was pretty happy with the zipper too. 

There are plenty of other Curves and Handstitched projects popping up in the group photo pool, it is well worth a look.


  1. Looks fab - I love the look of clamshells

  2. That's very sweet. A great way to use some of your favourite scraps too!

  3. You are on a roll at the moment
