Pillow Tutorial

Ok y'all here's an EASY tutorial ... Even those who don't like to sew won't mind this project!

So first you have to measure your pillow ... The one we're using is 18X18. Then measure your fabric you want to add an inch to the pillow size ... So we did 19X19.

Cut one square 19X19 (or whatever size your pillow is) and then cut 2 other squares 19X12. This will create the back flap so that your pillow covers are easily removable and WASHABLE!!!

Once you cut your squares, you will need to fold over about 1/4" on the 12" side of your two smaller squares; as you fold, pin the fabric down. After folding and pinning, let the SEWING BEGIN! :)

After sewing your two hems on the smaller panels, lay the fabric pieces right sides together ... Then MORE PINNING! Be sure to pin all 4 sides together!

(almost there!)

After you finishing pinning the pillow cover (and avoiding your fingertips!), MORE SEWING! Sew about a 1/2" inch in on all sides so that your cover perfectly fits your pillow!

After sewing, cut the corners off each side; this ensures that your corners poke out correctly! :)

Flip the fabric & stuff your pillow in! VOILA!

We did it! :) Now it's your turn!
