Here is the pillow with wings...that just won't do!
I turned the pillow cover wrong-side out and pinned the extra, so I would know how much to take off.
I took the pillow to my sewing table and pinned the envelope closed so that it wouldn't slip during sewing.
I then took a ruler and drew a line with a pencil right above the pins I placed in the pillow. I worked with the "I can always take off more if I need to" philosophy.
Now I sew on the line that I drew.
Now the pillow looks better, not perfect, but much better. I will go back in a work on it a bit more.
When I am all done I trim my seam allowances (the material that hangs off pas the seam) to 1/4 inch.
All packed up and ready to send.
Next project? Matching dresses for Little Britches and one of her friends!
