DIY Sewed Pillow Cover


  • Fabric

  • Sewing pins

  • Iron

  • Sewing machine

  • Scissors

  • Yard stick



Measure your piece of fabric so that it is the exact width of your pillow insert, and double + 12" the length of the pillow. Use pins to mark the measurements, and cut.


On the short sides of your fabric, fold over each edge and press with the iron to keep in place.


Making sure the printed side of your fabric is face up, pverla the ends by folding them over each other. Once folded, your fabric should be the exact width of your pillow.


Pin the seams together, and carefully sew both edges.


Remove the pins from your seams, and clip the corners. Turn the completed pillow right side out, making sure to pull the corners fully out.


Stuff your pillow through the flap and enjoy!
