Is suitable for microwave ovens

Closure on the cherry stone pillow

Display:
  • Hello everybody

    I finally made it yesterday and sewed some covers for cherry stone pillows.

    I always make these pillows with inlet. This time it has 3 chambers and is nicely filled.

    I made a hotel lock because it would be impractical if the cover had a zipper (because it would be warmed up in the microwave or oven).

    But now I had a mistake in thinking and made the open edge at the bottom instead of on the side and the cover now always gapes (although I made an extra 5cm envelope.

    My question now is whether I should sew on a Velcro tape at this point so that the pillow stays closed. Do you have any other ideas?

    Many thanks for your help!

    Oh no, I'm too fast for this forum. Tell me right now that I can only post a new post every 45 seconds and please wait another 12 seconds ...

  • Hello you two

    How does such a plastic pusher behave when I heat the pillow in the microwave? Not that the pusher melts ...

    I was more likely to think of a Velcro tape. Don't you think that's almost better than a pusher?

  • I guess nothing happens ... but try it out ... but I always put the pillows in the micro without a protective cover.

  • Almost all plastic melts in the microwave.

    But only somewhere from 100 ° upwards and mostly in combination with water of some kind.

    You don't want to make your pillow so hot 30 or 40 degrees are already an absolute comfort zone and the kernels will probably start to simmer before the plastic.

    I only like burdock for short-lived things, as they tend to collect lint and then stop sticking. They also scratch if you don't sew them in far enough inward.

    If you prefer burdock, personal sensitivities speak against it at best. Just make sure that their edges don't 'slip out'. The Velcro strip in particular is uncomfortably scratchy.

    Addendum: How about a tie? Looks decorative and you avoid the tiresome plastic microwave discussion

    Not really. Unless you use the 90,000 watt setting for an hour, with which you normally bake frozen wild boars until they are nice and crispy (crispy is only possible with the over-baking function). And even if the zipper can't keep it up forever. How often do you use the pillow? How long do you need to warm up e.g. 1000 times?

    I think zips are chic.

  • I also think: there is nothing wrong with a purely plastic zipper. (Sold by the meter?)

    Microwaves heat water. This is in the air and in most foods. But also in the drops that you should sprinkle on the cherry stone pillow before you put it in the microwave. Likewise, dried cherry pits are never dust-dry, but contain a little water. Otherwise the microwave wouldn't work ...

    But plastic only melts from around 90 or even 120 degrees (or even later), depending on the type of plastic. You certainly don't want your pillow that hot ... not even at certain points.

    Oh, that's how you do it. I always put a glass with some water in it.

  • Yeah, I know Kam Snaps aren't zippers. But maybe somehow comparable.

    There it says on the manufacturer's website that they can be washed once at up to 90 ° degrees and can be heated in the microwave on medium setting.

    Unfortunately, I can't think of a manufacturer of endless zippers right now. Otherwise I would have looked there.

    Edit: Prym. But I can't really make any sense of that from the data sheet. Doesn't say anything about microwave. Where did you get your zipper from? (If you already have one.) Email the company.

  • Hello everybody

    Thanks for the tips.

    Usually I make a cover for the larger pillows with 5 chambers, which is closed with a zipper (I still have a box full of YKK zippers, piece goods with a fine plastic spiral). Would have been an idea, of course, but I wanted to do it differently with the smaller pillows ... Was probably not the best idea ...

    In any case, I've already sewn 8 covers and if I had to use zippers everywhere, it would be a bit of a hassle with the unraveling ...

    The pillows are for free, I'd rather be there a little earlier. You know, Christmas always comes as a surprise

    I think I'll put the covers on their side for now and think about what to do next. Meanwhile, not that I get bored, I'll see if I can handle my reading bones. I would like to sew such a pillow for my grandpa for Christmas, because it is sure to be comfortable.

    But I'll keep you up to date on which closure I finally chose
