**********9/1/14 update! Check out my new Etsy Shop: Silberez Creations*********************
Two things: I wanted to try out a new way of making pillows and I wanted pillows that would bring some fall love into the house. I am loving how these pillows turned out. They were so easy to make and so easy to remove the cover if you need to wash them or change them for a different look.
The tutorial I followed was this one I had pinned a couple months ago. The first thing I did was measure my pillow which was 16 inches by 12 inches. Then I cut the fabric to 38 inches by 13 inches (2 times the length of the pillow plus 6 inches by the width of the pillow plus 1 inch for seam allowance).
Then I hemmed both of the short ends.
Then, with the patterned side facing up, I wrapped the hemmed edges around the pillow until there was a snug fit. The hemmed edges overlap each other. I pinned one side and pulled the pillow out the other side.
Then I pinned and sewed the ends with a half inch seam allowance
I turned the cover inside out.
Then stuffed the pillow inside. Super easy and it only took me about 15 – 20 minutes per pillow.
Oh and one more fun thing about these pillows, Dan picked out the fabric. He probably doesn’t want me saying that. But if I hadn’t
forced asked him to go to Joann’s with me, I would’ve been there an extra two hours and who knows what I would have come home with.
Similar pillows will be available in my Etsy shop. Check it out at SilberezCreations.etsy.com
