Easy-Peasy “I’m Having a Party Tonight” Pillowcovers

Look at all these lovely fabrics.

Fabric, Easy-Peasy "I'm Having a Party Tonight" PillowcoversI waited for Fabric.com to have a sale on their Premier Prints Christmas color fabrics.  So Pretty!  So many projects to make!

I was having a few guests arriving (like 10) for the weekend.  And I wanted to freshen up my family room a bit.

Let’s make a pillow.

I had a 16” square pillow form.

I cut fabric 16” x 40” (32” around + 1 1/2” seam allowance + 6 ½” for coverage on the back. ) This should give me a 15” square—I like the case to be tight on the pillow.

Typically I would line this fabric with fleece but for easy-peasy “I’m having a party tonight” pillow covers, I’m skipping that step.

Press under ¼” on each short end. Then press under another ½”. Stitch.

Just to mark the center of the fabric, bring the short ends together and press the fold.

Measure 7 ½” from the fold on both sides and mark within the seam allowance.

See the pressed fold? Hard to see the marks but they are there.

Fold each side at the marks.
