Look at all these lovely fabrics.
I 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.
Fold each side at the marks.
Sew ½” seams on top and bottom.
Turn right side out and stick that pillow form in!
