Dream Weaver Pillow Cover
This project encourages you to explore playing with color!
Weave this project in your choice of six Aurora Earth Cotton warp colors or let Cotton Clouds help with these prepackaged kits!
These bundles in our Aurora Earth 8/2 Cottons take the guesswork out of choosing your warp colors. Each Dream Weaver Pillow Cover Kit includes the six coordinating colors needed for this project plus natural weft yarn.
This is such a fun project with so many color possibilities!
There is no wrong warping sequence in this project! Warp in irregular stripes or design a stripe sequence that is appealing to your eye. You may choose wide stripes, thinner stripes, or random colors throughout. Random warps look wonderful in plain weave and the results are always a surprise.
We have suggested a width of 23" in this pattern, but you can weave any width to fit your loom and size of pillow covers you wish to make.
Yarns: Aurora Earth 8/2 Cottons in 6 warp colors plus natural for weft.

Equipment needed: Rigid Heddle Loom; 23” weaving width; 10 dent reed; 2 shuttles; pillow form; sewing machine or sewing needle and thread for hems.
Buttons and tassels for embellishing (optional).
