I'm pretty positive this post where I shared about these pillows is my viewed post of all times. I have been busy redoing our living room and dining room. I have been loving updating things and realize how happy it makes me to love our space. Goodbye red and beige. Hello grey, yellow and blue! The last thing on my list was to update our pillow covers. I bought my fabric online at fabric.com. That is wear I've purchased fabric for Addilyn's nursery, our basement and our curtains. It's cheaper than any stores I've looked at, and there are so many more choices.
These pillows really are so easy, and honestly take me less than 15 minutes per pillow. You only have to sew three straight lines and you're done! And the nice thing is they can be taken off easily to be washed or to be changed out.
Lay your pillow on top of your fabric. Make sure there is space on both sides to fold it and overlap it and then an inch or so on top and bottom. No need to measure!
Iron down both short ends and sew.
Turn your fabric inside out and overlap the edges.
Cut off any extra fabric you have on the sides.
Slide the pillow out and then sew up both sides. Turn it right side and put it on your pillow!
For the blue pillows I did a printed fabric on the front and a solid color for the back. (Honestly it's because I didn't order enough of the printed one, but I actually like how it turned out). These were a tiny bit harder, but still pretty easy. Just make your back piece a few inches longer than your front square so that you can make it overlap and then cut it in half. Sew a piece to each side of your front. And follow with step two and three!
